The all-new Ford Transit family is being extended with the addition of a low-floor, front-wheel drive range of vans and chassis cabs. The vehicle will be the first front-wheel drive model in Transit's 35-year history, and will create a new standard in class. Front and rear-wheel drive Transit (which was introduced earlier this year) have an amazing 95 percent commonality between their base platforms. That means significant cost benefits to operators with mixed fleets.
