2020 Ford Transit AWD

Mar 15, 2019

For a long time now, Mercedes-Benz has dominated the adventure van space, as their Sprinter is easily the top option on the market — thanks largely to its off-road capabilities. It looks like the folks at Ford have grown tired of that fact, as they’ve finally unveiled an AWD version of their Transit van, seemingly with the aim of taking down the Germans.

Available in two configurations — Passenger and Cargo — this is the first time the brand’s fabled large transport has come with the option for a 4×4 drive system. But that off-road-readiness isn’t the only upgrade, not by a long shot. There are also two new engine options — a 2.0-liter EcoBlue bi-turbo I4 diesel and a 3.5-liter PFDi V6 gas version — as well as a 10-speed automatic transmission for an even smoother torque curve. The Passenger variety also comes with the option for driver assistance technology, like blind-spot awareness, trailer coverage, and cross-traffic alerts. We’re not sure if that’s enough to take down the legendary Sprinter as the standard for adventure vas, but it very well could be the first true contender when it ships this fall.
