Frontier Ford's 2016 Transit Review and Research

The Ford Transit is a leading option among commercial vans because it consistently delivers the goods. Whether you need a cargo or passenger van, full-size or compact van, or a choice of upfits ranging from Adrian Steel shelving packages to Masterack ladder racks, the 2016 Ford Transit in Santa Clara offers the versatility you're looking for.

Just six months after its debut, Transit became America's best-selling van and its popularity hasn't waned since. It's still a No. 1 choice among commercial and fleet customers who desire dependability, efficiency and technology.'s 2016 Ford Transit review says commercial shoppers should place it at the top of their lists because it offers many pros, including numerous configuration options, pleasant road manners for a vehicle of its size and a strong suite of available engines.

Starting with the full-size Transit cargo van and passenger wagon, shoppers can select either the 3.7-liter V6, which is available with a CNG/propane prep package, or an optional 3.2-liter Power Stroke five-cylinder turbo diesel. There's also a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that offers a class-leading 400 pound-feet of max torque. Depending on your setup, towing capacity ranges from 4,200 to 7,500 pounds, while payload ranges from 2,740 to 4,560 pounds.

If you're shopping for a 2016 Ford Transit in the San Francisco Bay Area, you may also want to consider the compact Transit Connect if you don't necessarily need a full-size van. It's available in cargo and passenger models and offers a choice of two engines: a 2.5-liter Duratec four-cylinder (CNG/propane package optional) or a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder. All engines, including those on full-size models, are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

New this year, full-size Transit vans and wagons offer Ford's recently introduced SYNC 3 infotainment system. It's faster, smarter and easier to use, with new touch controls like swiping and pinching, which make it just as simple to navigate as a smartphone or tablet. In addition, SYNC 3's voice technology can better recognize natural speech, which makes it easier to navigate the menu, as well.

Buy or lease a 2016 Ford Transit in Santa Clara and you'll also get to take advantage of a standard rearview camera and can choose from other new options on top of SYNC 3. There are available new auxiliary fuse panels, a single absorbed glass mat battery and a choice of dual-sliding side doors (cargo vans).
