If an effort to provide the business world with more fuel saving capability, Ford will be releasing the new 2013 Ford Transit van with a diesel-engine option.
The new 2013 Ford Transit is going through major changes to provide greater cargo capacity and power output than the outgoing E-Series. Along with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, Ford also promises that the new 2013 Ford Transit van will have a diesel-engine option.
According to Ford, the choice of a turbocharged V6 engine or diesel engine plus about 300 pounds in weight reduction in the new 2013 Ford Transit van should help reduce fuel consumption by as much as 25 percent compared to similar E-Series vans (Econoline), which translates into some serious savings for large fleets and contractors.
“With fleet operators facing skyrocketing fuel prices and constant pressure to reduce costs, Ford continues to expand its range,” said Kevin Koswick, director, North American Fleet, Lease and Remarketing Operations for Ford. “By offering multiple options to help solve these challenges, Ford is giving fleet customers true power of choice in finding solutions that best meet their specific needs.”
When buying the new 2013 Ford Transit van, customers will have access to the Ford’s Vehicle Emissions and Fuel Cost Calculator, which is designed to help fleet customers calculate CO2 emissions over routine traveled distances. The tool helps to evaluate fuel costs and emissions by providing alternative routes of traveling.
