Spy photographers have caught the 2019 Ford Transit testing on public roadways.

Wearing a new front end, the 2019 Ford Transit is rumored to get a new 3.5-liter V6 engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to this change, it should be more efficient than the outgoing version of the cargo van.

Expected to debut later this year, the updated Transit appears to have all of its changes reserved up front, as the rear end of the prototype isn’t wearing any camouflage.

The larger Transit follows in the footsteps of the recently updated 2019 Ford Transit Connect, which added a diesel engine to its lineup.

Expect more details on the refreshed 2019 Ford Transit to be released in the coming months leading up to its debut.
