Business-Focused Features

The 2017 Ford Transit, available now near Atlanta, comes in a wide variety of models, meaning that small businesses around North Georgia will be able to choose the one that best fits their needs and budget.

Looking first at the Transit Cargo van, this full-size hauler comes equipped with a terrific amount of standard amenities, including remote locking/unlocking, vinyl upholstery, a hinged passenger-side door, tie-down loops and a rearview camera. On top of that, drivers will be able to choose between long, standard and short wheelbases depending on their needs, which can be matched with low, medium or high roof body styles. Gross weight ratings on the van are divided into Transit 150, 250 and 350 models.

Shoppers looking at the 2017 Ford Transit in Buford who need to haul people instead of cargo will find that the Transit Wagon is the ideal choice for their needs. With a large amount of seating room, as well as two well-equipped trim levels, drivers will find that the Transit Wagon offers a wealth of passenger-themed amenities, such as a sliding passenger door, reclining rear seatbacks, full-length carpeting and a six-speaker sound system.

Finally, shoppers who need a smaller, more compact version of the full-size Transit will find all that they need in the Transit Connect. Offered in three trim levels, the Transit Connect provides terrific space and amenities for hauling both cargo and people. Standard features include keyless entry, a multi-function display, vinyl flooring and a fold-flat front passenger seat.

Commanding Power

The newly standard 3.7-liter V6 engine produces a very healthy 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, and is paired with an agile six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. Rounding out the powertrain is a standard rear-wheel drivetrain. A stronger powertrain that many 2017 Ford Transit reviews recommend is also available: a turbocharged version of the V6, which boosts power to 310 horsepower.

The Transit Connect also gets a powerful engine option: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder the outputs 169 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivers will also find a six-speed automatic is paired to this engine, as is a front-wheel drive system.

Exceptional Safety & Protection

Standard safety features on the 2017 Transit include everything from front side airbags, side curtain airbags and antilock brakes to stability control and front airbags, while standard amenities on the Transit Connect include hill start assist, traction and stability control, and front-seat side airbags.
