Fans of Euro-vans rejoice. Ford has confirmed that the 2014 Transit, the most European of vans, will get a 3.2L 5-cylinder diesel engine to complement the 3.5L Ecoboost V6.
North American specs haven’t been announced, but European versions of this engine make 197 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque, with 90 percent of available twist produced at 1,700 and 3,500 rpm. The last time a diesel was offered on a full-size van was the 6.0L Powerstroke V8 on the E-Series. The new 5-cylinder will be mated to a 6-speed automatic. Sorry folks, no manual will be offered with the brown version pictured above.
