Ford Imports Second Diesel Engine for 2014 Transit Van

Ford announced its new Transit full-size commercial van will feature a turbocharged diesel engine, the second to be brought to North America.

Ford will import the 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel engine from South Africa, to be used as an option for the 2014 Transit full-size commercial van, which will be manufactured at Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri. The engine’s power has not yet been certified, but we know that the six-speed automatic transmission Transit, equipped with this engine, offers 197 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque.

“Commercial van drivers spend most of their working hours behind the wheel,” said Joe Bakaj, Ford’s vice president of powertrain engineering. “We know they want a fuel-efficient diesel engine with smooth, responsive performance and low operating costs.”

The Transit van will also be offered with an optional 3.5-liter EcoBoost gasoline engine. Besides the 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel and the 3.5-liter EcoBoost gasoline engines, Ford also offers the 6.7-liter V-8 diesel engine in its F-Series Super Duty trucks. Automakers choose the diesel engines for passenger vehicles, as they become more fuel-efficient and powerful. This year so far sales of vehicles equipped with diesel engines have increased 25%, lead by VW, Mercedes-Benz and BWM.
