We recently took delivery of our 2020 Ford Transit. Here are some “as delivered” pictures and commentary before it goes under the knife.
windowsticker20Ah the chrome grill. I wanted the black grill, as I should I didn’t get the “exterior upgrade package” which includes the chrome grill. Yet when you get fog lights, my fogs came “included” with rear park sense, you get upgraded to a chrome grill. Luckily Matt Ford ordered a black grill to see if it fits and I purchased it at a great price. Anyone looking for a chrome grill?Exhaust tip takes a turn and exits the side. Previous years dumped the exhaust underneath.
The large offset “dually singles” are a bit goofy im my opinion. This allows Ford to use the same axles on dual rear wheel models and single rear wheel models at least for the AWD drivetrains.
It will likely result in an even smaller aftermarket wheel segment than the previous models.
New cover over the bulge on the passenger side but not on the driver side.
The updated dash and the darker colored door panels are a much appreciated improvement over the previous models.
Fog light button is left side of light cluster.
New interior light switch at the back doors. On the driver side coincidentally….you open two doors to get to it….
The gaps between the foam blobs and the headliner seem bigger than before with an even better view of the airbags.
The jack is now integral to the tool kit. What a revelation, its no longer twice as big and either under the passenger seat on cargo vans or just bolted to a wall in back like on previous passenger vans.I think this light is new.
New CCP has 175 and 60 amp posts!
So there is an actual steering shaft still.
31 gallon extended range tank.The shark fin, modem antenna.
Taking the ecoboost up and down through the gears (video below). Watch the center/top of the instrument cluster for the gear indicator of the 10 speed. This comes up with a tap of the left side shifter minus button. You can continue to tap it to eliminate or skip gears. The transmission will skip gears on its own also.
It has a great down shifting program. Similar to the E-series 5R110 transmission in tow/haul.
