Ford released fuel economy and power numbers for the all-new Transit Wagon that is replacing its old E-Series vans.

The new cargo van is available with three different engine options, starting with a 3.7-liter V6 that pumps out 275 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful option is a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that makes 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, while there will also be a 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel available that puts out 185 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.

When it comes to fuel economy, the base V6 and the Ecoboost V6 actually share the same rating when equipped on a low- or medium-roof regular wheelbase Transit, achieving 14 mpg in the city, 19 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg combined. Fuel economy numbers haven’t been released for the diesel engine yet.

Three different roof heights – low (83.6″), medium (100.8″) and high (110.1″) – are available along with both a regular and long wheelbase. The Transit offers 487.3 cubic feet with a high roof and long wheelbase, while those who want to haul people can buy the Transit in 8-, 10-, 12-, or 15-seat configurations.

On the flip side, for those who looking to haul cargo, the base Transit carries a payload capacity of 4,650 lbs, and can tow a maximum of 7,500 lbs.
