Check out the New Ford Transit lineup at Borgman Ford, Grand Rapids’ home to fair and square deals. Over at Borgman, we know vans, as does Ford. Their 35 years at the top of the Full-size Van sales charts had to be earned, and they did it the hard way. By making their vans dependable and versatile, they’re able to put in a punishing shift, and then come back ready for more.
A genuine game-changer, the Transit is as tough as any Ford Truck and can be configured to match the precise needs of your job. Choice of vehicle configuration is best-in-class thanks to 3 roof heights, 2 wheelbases, 3 body lengths, 3 engine options, and many door and window options. On top of that, the Transit Cutaway and Chassis Cab are available with 3 wheelbases or frame lengths.
Tested tough since 1965.
Since Ford launched the Transit 49 years ago, it has been a driving force in the European van market. With more than 7 million units sold, it has earned the loyalty of people who rely on it, day in and day out, to get their jobs done. Its two “International Van of the Year” awards prove that Transit is a winner with the top professional commercial vehicle journalists too.
Ford’s obsession with durability is what drove them to punish Transit development vehicles for more than 7 million customer-equivalent miles. They started test vehicles at -40°F and at over 14,500 ft., then had them tow fully laden trailers up long inclines in 120°F heat. Transit underwent 250,000 door slam testing
cycles, which is nearly 3 times as much testing as a traditional retail vehicle. This all adds up to a Transit that is designed to do its job all day, every day, and for many years to come.
We know how hard your van works for you 24/7. You need power, reliability, and efficiency. The 2 gasoline engines that power the Transit have been designed, built and tested to uncompromising Built Ford Tough® standards – already proving their hard-working ability in over 700,000 Ford F-Series trucks. Towing and hauling are made easy by the standard 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission. It has selectable tow/haul mode to compensate for grade and load, while also reducing gear hunting when towing or hauling heavy cargo. However, when the work demands that your engine must run for many hours a day under constant idling and stop-and-go conditions, the 3.2L Power Stroke I-5 Turbo Diesel delivers. It’s the latest generation of an engine that has proven itself worldwide for years. For maximum flexibility, 90% of the 3.2L’s peak torque is available from 1,500 to 2,750 rpm. Quick-start glow plugs offer fast startups at temperatures as low as -10°F. A Variable Geometry Turbocharger helps deliver instantaneous power.
