Base power will come from a 3.7-liter, naturally aspirated V-6 that makes 302 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque in the F-150. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, which features twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection, also will be available.
That engine produces 365 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque in the F-150. Power ratings for the engines’ application in the Transit have not been finalized, Ford representatives said.
A 3.2-liter diesel sourced from Ford’s global operations also will be available. The turbocharged, in-line 5-cylinder engine features high-pressure common rail injection, dual overhead cams, a water-cooled exhaust gas recirculation system and four valves per cylinder, Ford engineers said.
Diesel-powered Transits will come equipped with a selective catalytic reduction system for compliance with federal emissions limits. The system’s diesel oxidation catalyst and diesel particulate filter are integrated into one compartment, Ford said.
The engine is expected to churn out close to the 197 hp/347 pound-feet of torque it produces in global applications, the company said. One transmission, a 6-speed automatic, will be available.
