New for 2021 model year, America’s best-selling van – Ford Transit – is updated with recreational vehicle and parcel delivery option packages for those who work hard and play hard.
Four new and one improved option packages are available including the updated Motorhome Prep Package for cutaway, the new RV Prep Package for cargo van, new Livery prep package for passenger van XLT, new Parcel Delivery Package for cargo and cutaway, and a new Adventure Prep Package for cargo or crew van.
The Motorhome Prep Package now includes Adaptive Cruise Control for added confidence on long trips. RV Prep Package includes driver-assist features including a side-sensing system and Adaptive Cruise Control, as well as a heavy-duty trailer tow offering so RV-ers can bring along bikes or other toys. Exterior enhancements include front fog lamps to help light up dark country roads. Inside, four-way manual swivel driver and passenger seats are available, as is an eight-speaker sound system.
The Adventure Prep Package bundles together popular camper van options including 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6,. Driver-assist features include Adaptive Cruise Control, reverse and side-sensing systems, and Blind Spot Information System for peace of mind. And when standard technology includes an 8-inch color touch screen with SYNC® 3 and dual USB ports, power point and dual absorbent glass mat batteries, adventure doesn’t have to mean roughing it. Adventure Prep Package is available with all-wheel drive 3.73:1 limited-slip differential rear axle, heavy-duty front axle and privacy glass
There are a number of design refinements for 2021 Transit that provide improved access to the cargo compartment. The manual parking brake on the floor by the driver’s seat has been replaced in all Transit vans up to 9,500 pounds GVWR by an electronic parking brake, creating a 50 percent wider clear aisle between the front seats. An optional center console with right-side shifter further improves walkthrough and offers more than 7 inches of additional driver legroom. The overhead shelf is now optional, providing more clearance when standing.
The new Parcel Delivery Package builds on these walkthrough improvements and adds 50/50 hinged rear doors and wide 253-degree opening and full interior lighting for cargo vans to facilitate early morning and late evening deliveries. The package also includes driver and passenger seats without armrests to further improve cargo access.
The new Livery Package serves the premium transportation market with a ready-made configuration focused on comfort and style. Available for Transit passenger van XLT, the Livery Package includes 10-way power seats finished in ebony leather seating surfaces for all passengers, power sliding side door, HID headlamps, full privacy glass and 16-inch silver wheels.
Transit continues to be offered in a range of configurations including cargo van, crew van, passenger van, cutaway or chassis cab; low, medium, and high roof; with two wheelbases; an extended version; rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive; and single or dual rear wheels. New for 2021, dual rear wheel Transit cargo van models offer a new maximum GVWR of 11,000 lbs. to take on the biggest jobs. Customers can choose from the standard 3.5-liter PFDi V6 and the proven 3.5-liter EcoBoost® gas engine, both paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. A honeycomb mesh grille is standard on all 2021 Transit models.
Standard driver-assist features include Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Post-Collision Braking, Lane-Keeping System and auto high-beam headlamps. Transit passenger van XLT is equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 which

An embedded FordPass Connect™ modem with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and connectivity for up to 10 devices is standard, along with USB outlets in every row of the passenger van. The modem also facilitates the use of Ford Telematics or Ford Data Services from Ford Commercial Solutions, so fleet customers can monitor their fleets with GPS tracking and geofencing, get live vehicle health alerts to plan and limit downtime, set reminders for vehicle service, analyze driver behavior, and help manage fuel usage to potentially reduce costs.
