If you like Ford vehicles but you’re in need of a vehicle that can fit in a good chunk of your extended family, then we’ve got good news for you! Ford Philippines has just launched the Ford Transit MPV. It can fit in a whopping 15-people in total.
While you might be scratching your head while wondering what in the world a Transit is, it’s actually a well-known model particularly in Europe where it was first introduced back in 2007. It is very fuel-efficient, roomy, and powerful.
Also, it's one of Ford’s best selling commercial vans the world over. Also, Ford Philippines recognizes the growth of the commercial bus and van segment in the Philippines as such it’s the right time to introduce the Ford Transit to Filipinos.
Despite being a van, the Transit has this utilitarian appeal to it that we rather like
As we’ve said earlier, the Ford Transit and its friend, Ford Transit Connect, is mainly used as a commercial vehicle in other parts of the world. Aside from hauling stuff, the Transit can also do well as a company transport or tourist vehicle.
Under the hood, the Ford Transit is powered by the 2.2-liter Duratorq engine which it shares with the Ranger XLT. On the transit, the 2.2 liters can make 135 horsepower and 385 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels with a six-speed transmission.

Measuring at 5,981 mm long, 2,474 mm wide, and 2,517, the 2020 Ford Transit offers lots of space. As we’ve said, it can comfortably seat 15 people and everyone will be kept comfortable with individual headrests, 12 cup holders, a lot of power sockets, and a whopping 21 storage bins.
The very wide doors, the even wider rear doors, and the power side step are also worth mentioning as it makes the Transit an ideal vehicle for differently-abled people.
