Ford Transit

 from 1961 to 2016

Ford Transit road car

1961 : Generation 1


Gallery
Unlike the British-built Transit "family", the first production Ford to wear the "Transit" badge was a van built in Ford's Köln (Cologne) plant in Germany.
It was introduced in 1953 as FK 1000 (Ford Köln carrying 1,000 kg).
From 1961, this vehicle was called the Ford Taunus Transit.
Production of this model ceased in 1965. ...

1965 : Generation 2


Gallery
The first Ford Transit proper was introduced in October 1965, and has been in continuous production in three basic generations to the present day.
The van was produced initially at Ford's Langley facility in Berkshire, England (a former Second World War aircraft factory which had produced Hawker Hurricane fighters), but demand outstripped the capability of the plant, and production was moved to Southampton, where it has remained.
Transits have also been produced in Ford's Genk factory in Belgium and also T ...

Ford Transit   (1965-1978)

1978 : Generation 3


Gallery
In March 1978, a facelifted version—commonly known in some markets as the "Mark 2" model—debuted with a restyled nose section, new interior, and the introduction of the Pinto engine from the Cortina in place of the Essex V4.
Many fleet owners experienced premature camshaft wear in early Pinto units in the Cortina and for two years the Transit 75 was available with the 1.6 L Ford Kent "Xflo" engine.
High-performance versions intended for police or ambulance use used the 3.0 L V6 version of the Essex engine, ...

1986 : Generation 4


Gallery
The second generation Transit platform appeared in January 1986 and was notable for its all-new bodyshell which was of "one-box" design (i.e.
the windscreen and bonnet are at the same angle), and the front suspension was changed to a fully independent configuration on SWB versions.
The engine range was carried over largely unchanged from the last of the 1978-85 generation models, although in 1989 the high-performance 3.0 V6 petrol was replaced by the Cologne 2.9 EFI V6.
A subtle facelift in 1992 saw the fu ...

Ford Transit   (1986-1994)

1994 : Generation 5


Gallery
A major facelift to the Transit in 1994/5 gave the Transit a new nose and dashboard, along with the 2.0 L DOHC 8-valve engine as found in the 1994 to 1998 Ford Scorpio.
It is similar to the earlier Sierra DOHC unit but without the distributor and uses the updated OBD II-compliant EEC-V level engine control unit.
Some of Ford's 16-valve engines, such as those found in the Scorpio, Escort RS2000 and Galaxy were also based on this block.
At the same time air conditioning, electric windows, central locking, el ...

2000 : Generation 6


Gallery
The next Transit, introduced in July 2000, was the third all-new design, and borrowed styling cues from Ford's "New Edge" designs like the Focus, and Ka.
Developed by Ford in the United States, the main innovation is that it is available in either front- or rear-wheel drive.
Ford nomenclature makes this the V184 (rear-wheel-drive) or V185 (front-wheel-drive) model.
This model features the "Puma"-type Duratorq turbo diesel engine also used in the 2000 Mondeo and Jaguar X-Type, with the petrol versions movin ...
