KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz

The 2017 Ford Transit comes in two main versions: the work-and-cargo-oriented Transit, and the passenger-friendly Transit Wagon. Both versions of this European-style high-roof van come in a wide variety of configurations, offering up to 15-passenger seating, tons of cargo room, or both. Engine choices include a turbocharged V6 engine, a 5-cylinder diesel engine, or a 3.7-liter V6 that can be configured to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). It's no surprise that the Transit is available with a wide array of options, allowing buyers to customize their new work vans with various cargo-area treatments, seating arrangements, and even things like power running boards. That doesn't even include the dizzying array of options available through Ford from various upfitters.

You'll Like This Car If...

Plumbers, electricians, airport shuttle drivers, and any other profession that requires a big, roomy enclosed hauling vehicle will rejoice at the Ford Transit's flexibility, numerous upgrades, and plentiful third-party upfitters who can configure the van to fit almost any need.

The 2017 Ford Transit doesn't offer 4-wheel drive and starts at more than $30,000. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter does offer 4-wheel drive, and the old-school Chevrolet Express van offers better towing, 4-wheel drive and costs less. Smaller vans like the Transit Connect cost less and are easier to maneuver in the city.

What's New for 2017

Changes for the 2017 Ford Transit include a new center console designed to make it easier to access the rear of the vehicle, a better standard audio system with four speakers, and an available power running board.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2017 Ford Transit is easier to drive than you might think at first glance. While some configurations are exceptionally tall, the reality is that the footprint of the van isn't much different from a full-size pickup truck. So maneuvering in parking lots, on the highway and around town isn't much different from driving a long-bed Ford F-150, for example. You do need to watch your head though, as low-hanging branches or other objects can easily bang into the tall-roof models. As for the driving experience itself, it's light years better than the vans you might remember from church retreat weekends. The steering is light and accurate, the suspension is buttoned down without being harsh, and the van is surprisingly free of squeaks and rattles. While any engine is fine, fuel misers should consider the 5-cylinder diesel, while the more power-hungry will gravitate to the turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6.

Favorite Features

If you're a fleet manager, this is a must-have item. You can observe if your employees' driving habits are safe or not, determine in advance if a vehicle is due for service, and even generate reports on fuel efficiency.

We'll admit we're suckers for power, and the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 has it in spades. It has no problem moving this big bulky van with surprising grace -- and a surprisingly sporty engine note, too -- and it still manages to get good fuel economy.
