2019 Ford Transit Cargo Overview

For 2019, the Ford Transit Cargo gets a few updates. It competes with Ram's ProMaster and the GMC Savana Cargo.

New options for 2019 include D-pillar grab handles for all three roof heights, high-strength laminated side glass for some configurations, and white steel wheels with exposed lug nuts for fleet customers.

Shoppers can choose from two wheelbases, three lengths, and three roof heights. These dimensions will determine the total cargo room, which ranges from 246.7 to 487.2 cubic feet. There are also three engine choices. The 3.7-liter V6 that comes standard produces 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The two optional choices include a 3.5-liter V6 with EcoBoost, making 310 hp and 400 lb-ft, and a 3.2-liter Power Stroke I5 turbo diesel, making 185 hp and 350 lb-ft. All three engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The base 3.7-liter V6 gets 14 mpg city, 18 highway mpg while the 3.5-liter V6 gets 15 mpg city, 19 highway mpg. The diesel engine’s fuel economy hasn't been rated by the EPA.

You also get to choose between four trims: 150, 250, 350, and 350 Heavy Duty. The 150's towing capacity ranges between 4,600 and 7,500 pounds, and the payload ranges from 3,140 to 3,670 pounds. The 250's towing capacity ranges between 4,200 to 7,500 and the payload capacity ranges from 3,130 to 3,950 pounds. The 350's towing capacity ranges from 4.200 to 7,500 pounds and can lug between 3,750 to 4,640 pounds. The 350 HD vans only come with the extended wheelbase.

The interior features standard vinyl seats and vinyl floor coverings, but the doors and dash are loaded with storage areas. Air conditioning, power windows and locks, and remote keyless entry also come standard, as does a 4-speaker AM/FM stereo. Options include a 10-way power driver’s seat, cruise control, Bluetooth, and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system.

The Transit Cargo also comes standard with halogen headlights and power-adjustable short-arm mirrors. Other available features include extended-length running boards, a programmable battery guard, a trailer-brake controller, and a modem telematics system that allows you to monitor the vehicle’s location, fuel usage, and service needs.

Standard safety features include AdvanceTrac with roll-stability control, side-wind stabilization, and a tire-pressure-monitoring system. The 2019 versions haven't been tested yet, but the 2018 Transit Cargo received a 5-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

If you need a van to conduct business, the 2019 Ford Transit Cargo can help you finish the job.
