Freshen 2018

After small updates this year that included adding the Sync 3 infotainment system, Ford plans to freshen the small van in the second half of 2018.

Freshen 2018

Last redesigned in 2014, the 2019 cargo van, on sale Fall 2018, will come standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed transmission. That replaces the 2.5-liter four-cylinder on today's van. A new 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel engine, also paired with an eight-speed transmission, is available as the only diesel option in the segment. Ford expects it to be rated at 30 mpg highway. The cargo van also will offer a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed automatic transmission and a prep package for fleets to use either compressed natural gas or propane.
