Default Anyone Know When a 2020 Transit AWD will be used in a Class B or B+ Build?

With a gas ecoboost

Hank, you "wonder" when? The release says LTV plans to build their 2021 "Wonder" model on 2020 Transits.

Pleasure Way is offering the Ontour based on the Transit chassis and on the Class B Forum someone wrote:
Thank you Jon. We have been keeping our eye on this unit. We have heard there will be AWD possible in December. We live in N Idaho and that would be something we would appreciate. There is a You Tube video that a couple did from a rough tour of both the 2.0 and 2.2. They both look great.

My ModVans CV-1 based on a 2020 Transit chassis is on order and I'm expected to get it in April.

Pleasureway OnTours to date use the 2019 Transit. No 2020 Transits from them until April or later is what we heard.

I was curious about Ford Transits and went to the Ford website to "build" a van and the only build they allowed was passenger vans. I couldn't bring up a cargo van. Same issue with MB Sprinters. They still default to 2019 and some of the information options have gone away.

Welcome to the forum Hank Van Life!

"When" is the big question for the latest Transit and Sprinters for several reasons (scarcity due to big purchases by corporations and diesel engine re-certifications).

I hope the answer is sooner rather than later. Lots of innovation and changes coming. These are exciting times in the class b market.

You just weren't looking in the right place, Davydd. The cargo vans are in a different place on the web site than the passenger vans, and the 2020 builds are there. Look under "Vehicles > Commercial Vehicles", not under "Vehicles > Trucks & Vans".

The diesel engine question is pretty much irrelevant for the Transit; while they do offer a diesel engine, the gas engines are much more attractive and have no need for such certifications. And yes, Amazon has been buying up a lot of vans, but as I said above, my Class B builder started receiving 2020 vans some weeks ago. So "when" is essentially now.
