The 2018 Transit lineup is extensive, with van, passenger wagon, cutaway and chassis cab body configurations available for just about every commercial need—and some buyers may find the passenger model suitable for family use, too.

Three engines are available: a 3.7-liter V-6, a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6, and a 3.2-liter turbodiesel V-6. All mate exclusively to 6-speed automatic transmissions that shuttle power to the rear wheels.
