Ford Transit Review for 2016 Model Year
If your business is in need of a fleet or commercial work van, choose one that'll prove it's worth its salt at every turn. Day in and day out the Ford Transit will work hard for you, offering excellent payload and storage area for those who carry cargo and ample seating and comfort for those in the people hauling business.
Choose a 2016 Ford Transit in Phoenix, Arizona, and you'll have several configuration options, including many choices when it comes to what's under the hood. The full-size Transit cargo van and passenger wagon offer three capable powerplants, including a standard V-6 and optional turbo V-6 or five-cylinder turbo diesel. Select the compact Transit Connect and you'll have a choice of two engines: a standard Duratec four-cylinder and optional turbo four-cylinder with EcoBoost technology. The Duractec can be ordered with a prep package for shoppers who desire compressed natural gas (CNG)/propane capability.
This year, 2016 Ford Transit reviews aren't just talking about the lineup's superior combination of power and efficiency, but also about technology. Your crew will be assisted by the all-new SYNC 3 infotainment system, which is now available on the full-size van and wagon. SYNC 3 is a portal to music, hands-free calling and text messaging, data services, available navigation and much more. The new system provides faster performance than its predecessor, along with improved speech recognition and new touch capabilities, such as pinching to zoom and swiping the screen to scroll left or right.
Buyers and lessees of the 2016 Ford Transit in Phoenix will also benefit from other new options as well, like dual-sliding side doors on the wagon and a new single absorbed glass mat (AGM) battery available on both the van and wagon. Additionally, a rearview camera with convenient tow-hitch assist technology is now standard. New paint colors are also offered this year too, including Caribou, Race Red, Magnetic and Shadow Black.
