2023 Ford E-Transit

Our 2023 Ford E-Transit™ Cargo Vans in Toledo OH

The Ford E-Transit is virtually identical to Ford's gas-powered Transit but it's aimed at a different customer base: Those who want no emissions but who can live without much driving range. Admittedly, that's not a very big market but it's one that Ford is experimenting with. The E-Transit can be purchased in a cutaway model, a chassis-cab and a cargo van configuration so it can be custom-tailored to the needs of different commercial customers. Buyers get a choice of three different roof types and three different wheelbase lengths. Ford's Sync 4 infotainment system comes standard and so do a number of safety technology features along with vinyl bucket seats and four-way manual adjustability. The electric-only range is just 126 miles which creates limitations that won't help in most fleets but might work for a small group of commercial customers. Here are more details about the Ford E-Transit cargo van at Yark Ford in Toledo OH.

What's new for 2023?

The Ford E-Transit gets only modest updates that include two newly available school bus packages along with two new exterior paiint color choices. You can now get optional backup alarms that include a white noise option and fixed shelving that's being offered for high-roof models. In addition, Ford is making a reverse speed limiter standard equipment for all new 2023 E-Transit vans.

Trim levels

The new Ford E-Transit gives buyers from Berkey and Holland OH a total of three trims to choose from:

  • Cutaway
  • Cargo Van
  • Chassis Cab

The EV motor and power

The new Ford E-Transit runs with a single electric motor that creates 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. The E-Transit is available with rear-wheel drive but all-wheel drive is not an option. Ford has revised the E- Transit's suspension system to help improve handling.

Range and charging time

The Ford E-Transit uses a 68-kilowatt battery pack that can take you 126 miles on a full charge. If you install a 220-volt power outlet, the E-Transit van can be fully recharged in about 12 hours. That compares with a range of up to 450 miles on the highway with the gasoline-powered Ford Transit on a full tank of gas. The gas version can be filled up pretty easily in about five minutes at a gas station around your business in Metamora OH.

Towing, cargo size and payload

Towing capacity for the E-Transit isn't yet known but the maximum payload ranges from 3,880 pounds up to 4,513 pounds if you get the cutaway model. The new Ford E-Transit measures up to 264 inches in length, as much as 109 inches in height and 81 inches in width.

Interior comfort and cargo

Ford will offer the E-Transit only in a configuration with seats for two people. The cabin is spartan and straightforward with rubberized flooring, cloth seat upholstery and durable plastic trim. You can choose either a standard-height or a high-roof model along with normal and extended wheelbase bodies. The biggest extended wheelbase model with the high roof gives you as much as 487 cubic feet of cargo space.

Infotainment systems

All three versions of the new Ford E-Transit will come with a standard 12.0-inch infotainment system. An on-board 4G LTE modem gives you a Wi-Fi hotspot and special connectivity features designed for fleet managers including vehicle telematics. Ford has made the infotainment system able to receive over-the-air updates.

Safety technology

Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking, a lane departure warning system and lane-keeping assist. We invite you to compare the E-Transit Ford cargo van with the more familiar gas-powered version to see which will work better in your fleet at Yark Ford in Toledo OH.
