About The Transit

The classic Ford Transit traces its roots back to the early 1950s when it was first known as the Taunus Transit.

After the end of World War 2, the British-controlled side of Germany had manufacturing plants that were put to use and one of the first projects was the Transit.

This new van would be engineered to drive like a car (like the Volkswagen Transporter) but be able to ferry around a workman and his tools.

If you have purchased one of these trucks, the Ford Transit owner’s manuals featured on this page will help you get acquainted with your new vehicle.

Over the decades the van was improved vastly in terms of handling and payload capacity.

In the 1980s the van was sold with a huge list of customization options, a tradition that has continued to this day.

The ability for the customer to be able to alter the van during assembly allows it to be tailored to what they need perfectly.

This has led to many niche van producers struggling to keep up with Ford’s commercial offering.

With a huge range of engines, transmissions and drive-train the van allows itself to be the perfect platform for many specialized vehicles such as:

  • School buses
  • Minibusses
  • Tipper vans
  • Disability vehicles with special access equipment
  • Off-road-capable commercial vehicles
  • Emergency response vehicles

The Ford Transit has seen a boom in recent decades thanks to the van being built and sold in China using the older second-generation platform and a range of smaller turbo-diesel engines.
