The History of the Ford Transit Van which is quite possibly one of the most famous make of vans and pickup trucks ever made. The Ford Transit is a range of light commercial vehicles produced by Ford since 1965. Sold primarily as a Cargo Panel Van.Over 8,000,000 Transit vans have been sold, making it the third best-selling van of all time and have been produced across four basic platform generations (debuting in 1965, 1986, 2000, and 2013 respectively), with various "facelift" versions of each. The first generation Transit, or the Transit Mark I in the United Kingdom was introduced in October 1965, taking over directly from the Thames 400E, and has been in continuous production in three basic generations to the present day. The Transit was a departure from the European commercial vehicles of the day with its American-inspired styling—its broad track gave it a huge advantage in carrying capacity over comparable vehicles of the day. Most of the Transit's mechanical components were adapted from Ford's car range of the time. Another key to the Transit's success was the sheer number of different body styles: panel vans in long and short wheelbase forms, pick-up truck, minibuses, crew-cabs and Tippers to name but a few. The engines used in the UK were the Essex V4 for the Petrol engined version in 1.7 L and 2.0 L capacities. By using relatively short V-4 engines Ford were able to minimise the additional length necessitated to place the engine ahead of the driver. The Ford Transit really has set the bar in the used van market and other models are refered to as " Transit Size Vans" when discribing what size van to buy.
