2020 Ford Transit Cargo Overview

A 2020 refresh for the Ford Transit Cargo brings welcome updates in terms of comfort and functionality, with new powertrain options, practical styling updates, and popular tech features. The Ford Transit competes most directly with the Ram ProMaster and Nissan NV lineups.

For 2020, the Transit Cargo gets new options that include a power sliding door, LED headlights with LED surrounds, and functional new grille designs. The Transit Cargo can be configured with a choice of length, wheelbase, and roof height.

The 2020 Transit Cargo carries over one engine, the twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 rated for 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. A new 3.5-liter V6 and a new bi-turbo 2.0-liter inline-4 diesel engine are available, though horsepower and torque ratings are not yet available. All three get a 10-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive (RWD). All-wheel drive (AWD) is a new option this year. Fuel-economy ratings are not yet available for the 2020 Transit Cargo lineup.

The 2020 Transit Cargo offers configurations to fit just about any need, and its updates only add to its convenience and user comfort. The cockpit has been updated with a more ergonomic design and plenty of storage. It also features many of the same infotainment options available in other Ford vehicles, such as the Sync 3 infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot with connectivity for up to 10 devices. Two displays are available, a 4-inch color screen or an 8-inch touchscreen.

Ford’s safety tech features are also put to good use in the Transit Cargo. New standard safety features join the lineup, including pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward-collision warning, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beams. The standard reversing camera and automatic emergency notification system carry over, and Ford’s MyKey customizable-settings system is available.

The Ford Transit Cargo’s updated design and new features add much-needed comfort and convenience to this segment. The 2020 Transit Cargo arrives in fall of 2019.
