Ford Philippines teased us with an invite to the launch of an all-new vehicle just last month, but it revealed no details whatsoever—at least apart from a photo of the said vehicle’s grille. After weeks of speculation, we’ve finally received more details regarding the imminent launch: We’ll be seeing the arrival of the Ford Transit MPV.
The company has now sent the official invite to the launch event this November 27, and with it came the confirmation that Transit is indeed the vehicle that’ll take center stage then. Other than that, however, no details have been provided.
There’s not much to work with, but we do have some guesses on what possible powertrain options will be available. One the one hand, it might be the 2.0-liter turbodiesel mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission—this is available locally in the Ranger Raptor and the new Everest. On the other hand, we may also be getting the same setup as the American-spec models, which come with a 3.2-liter inline-five, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, or a 3.7-liter V6.
Unfortunately, we can’t guess the price tag, but we’ll make sure to keep you guys posted once we receive further details, so watch this space. In the meantime, tell us what you think of the new Ford Transit: How do you think will it stack up against the likes of the Hyundai Grand Starex and Toyota Hiace Super Grandia?
