Rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, a reversing camera, as well as front and rear parking sensors are available on every variant excluding the cab-chassis variants.
Other non-safety spec enhancements include a heated windscreen, auto high-beam lights, auto wipers with heated windscreen, and a 230-volt inverter with 400W household socket.
Every 2020 Ford Transit will also get an 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen (up from the outgoing Transit’s 6.5-inch screen) with Ford’s Sync3 operating system which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Every Transit gets a bigger screen, but sat nav is a $600 option.
The Transit continues to be offered with just one engine – a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel producing 125kW/390Nm, mated to either a six-speed manual sending power to the rear wheels, or with a six-speed automatic sending power to the front wheels.
There is a new dual-cab chassis option added to the range for a total of six Transit variants with a new starting price of $50,490 (see pricing table below for more information).
On the options list is premium paint ($650), custom SVO paint ($1400), extra passenger seat ($150 - the standard front-row seat configuration is two), a high roof for van variants ($1500), sat-nav and voice control ($500) and dual sliding load doors for van variants ($1000).
The Transit requires servicing once a year or every 15,000km and is covered by Ford’s five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty promise (provided the customer meets certain conditions). Standard service prices are capped at $349 for the first four years or 120,000km for private and small fleet buyers.
