Engine choices range depending on payload. Because of European driver's licenses, a van like this can be driven up to a maximum weight of 3.5 tons (metric) by any driver. For higher payloads, a special trucker's license is required. Therefore the Transit can be found in a complete array of configurations, from fully enclosed panel vans, to people carriers, as well as stand-alone chassis for motorhomes or refrigerated trucks.
Engine choices are all TDCis: 2.2-liter (85 HP), a 2.4-liter (100 HP), an improved 2.2-liter that powers the SportVan (a sportier-looking van, good for 140 HP) and a 5-cylinder 3.2 liter (240 HP) for models over 3.5 tons. A 4WD version has also been announced. Prices for the SportVan are about 40,000 EUR in France.
