Ford Announces 3.2-Liter Turbo Diesel For the US-Spec 2014 Ford Transit

Ford has announced that its all-new 2014 Transit full-size van, which goes on sale late next year, will be offered with a new 3.2-liter Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel. The new diesel, Ford's second in North America, is being borrowed from the global Ford Ranger truck sold in world markets. The new Power Stroke Diesel will be the only five-cylinder diesel engine available in a commercial van in North America.

"Commercial van drivers spend most of their working hours behind the wheel. We know they want a fuel-efficient diesel engine with smooth, responsive performance and low operating costs," said Joe Bakaj, Ford vice president of Powertrain Engineering. "The 3.2-liter Power Stroke engine has been developed and proven globally to deliver a world-class combination of power, fuel economy and refinement."

While power has not been certified for North America, the new diesel engine is rated in Europe at 197 horsepower and 347 lb.-ft. of torque. The 3.2-liter Power Stroke is one of several engines that will be available for Transit in North America, including the 3.5-liter EcoBoost gasoline engine. All engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
