2023 Transit Crew Van Performance

Performance is not really the name of the game when it comes to commercial vehicles. They need just enough power to get the job done, and fun never enters into the equation. Even the base engine can move the hefty van around town, regardless of its load, but if you want the process to feel effortless, you'll definitely prefer the twin-turbocharged V6, especially for towing. Rear-wheel drive is standard; alternatively, the available all-wheel drive gives you superior grip on slippery roads and in snow, but it should not be seen as an invitation to go off-road, though. Maximum towing capacity varies depending on the body style chosen and the engine in play, and it varies between a minimum figure of 3,900 lbs to a maximum of 6,900 lbs.

Engine and Transmission

The base engine is a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6, which provides 275 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque to your choice of the rear or all four wheels. This is sufficient power for most daily needs, but it can feel sluggish if you regularly haul particularly heavy loads. For such applications, the twin-turbocharged V6 is the way to go. Outputs increase to a hearty 310 hp and 400 lb-ft. Both engines come equipped with a stop-start function to improve fuel economy, and a ten-speed automatic transmission handles gear shifts. It does the job smoothly enough, but it does favor efficiency over acceleration.

2023 Transit Crew Van Gas Mileage

Ford's larger Transit vans don't undergo proper mileage testing by the EPA, so real-world reports are the best way of determining fuel economy figures. The most numerous reports are for the mechanically identical Transit Passenger Van, which manages 15/19/16 mpg across the city/highway/combined cycles with the base engine and RWD, or 14/18/16 mpg with AWD. The Crew Van weighs a little less without any cargo, but can easily exceed the weight of the Passenger Van when fully laden. The twin-turbocharged V6 manages a similar 17 mpg combined, according to reports. The standard-body Crew Van is equipped with a 25-gallon tank, while the extended-body model gets a 31-gallon tank. This means that a total range of 425 to 527 miles is possible.
