Ford Transit MK8: high payload in a modern version

Ford Transit MK8 – the eighth generation of Ford Transit was presented in 2013. The new van again introduced a number of changes in the design. The Ford Transit MK8 has since become a more muscular model. This is because the Ford Transit Mark VIII debuted simultaneously on the European market - where it has an established position, as well as on the American market - where it will eventually replace the models of the Ford E-Series series.

Along with the new model, the new Ford EcoBlue diesel engines with a capacity of 2.0 TDCi and having different power (105 - 170 hp) also debuted. Customers of the new Ford Transit MK8 have three diesel units to choose from, which offer 20% more performance than its predecessor while reducing emissions by 55%. All diesel engines on the Ford Transit MK8 meet the strict Euro 6 LDT III emissions standards.
