The all-new 2014 Ford Transit is set to become an integral part of the blue oval’s lineup. Whether it’s delivering packages, moving products and tools, or even taking you to the airport, this vehicle will be able to accomplish a variety of tasks.

The Transit, which is currently on display at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, will be built at the Kansas City Assembly Plant. It’s set to go on sale in early 2014. Offering best-in-class fuel numbers, it will achieve an average of 25 per cent better fuel economy and haul at least 300 pounds more than today’s E-Series.

The Transit’s powertrains are specifically engineered for North American consumers. It will come with three engine options, including:

  • A standard 3.7-litre V-6.
  • A 3.5-litre EcoBoost, which is shared with today’s F-150.
  • A new 3.2-litre Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel.

It’s also a versatile vehicle that can fit many different needs. It’s offered in three body lengths, three roof heights and can fit 8-15 passengers, depending on the trim.
