Ford Transit Towing Capacity & Weight


Ford is already into the fourth generation of the Transit van and have been since 2013. The construction history of the Transit van goes back a full 56 years. Unfortunately, that history doesn't seem to have paid off as the latest model received mostly bad to very bad reviews from its drivers.

Overall, the Ford Transit is average in size. The height of the body for the latest generation is at least 2,410 millimeters, it has a minimum width of 2,059 millimeters and a length of 5,531 millimeters (minimum). At 3,300 millimeters between the front and rear axles, the wheelbase is also a standard dimension that still offers enough space in the interior. Ford offer three different trim variants, the availability of which varies depending on the engine.

The Transit comes in six diesel engine variants. An unladen weight of only 2,043 to 3,106 kilograms makes the van comparatively light, which has a very good effect on factors such as fuel consumption and vehicle performance. The Ford Transit towing capacity is a maximum of 750 kg (unbraked) and significantly higher if you have a trailer with a braking system.
