The upcoming 2021 Wonder by Leisure Travel Vans will be built on the new 2020 Ford Transit Cutaway. New features such as optional intelligent all-wheel drive and advanced driver-assist technology provide new levels of driving confidence.
Winkler, Manitoba, January 20, 2020 – Leisure Travel Vans, a brand of Triple E Recreational Vehicles, highlights advanced new features and technology on the 2020 Ford Transit Cutaway. With features such as a twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6, new advanced driver-assist technology, and optional intelligent all-wheel drive, Wonder owners will be taking to the road with new levels of driving confidence.
“With all the new advanced technology, powerful EcoBoost engine, and of course all-wheel-drive, we are really impressed with the new Transit,” commented Ryan Elias, General Manager at Leisure Travel Vans. “We think that these new options, amongst other new features, will open doors to a new demographic, which we’re really excited about.”
Chassis & Powertrain
The 2021 Wonder Class C will be built on the 2020 Ford Transit 350 Cutaway with an increased GVWR of 11,000 lbs. The Transit’s twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 puts out an impressive 310 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. The upgraded engine features direct injection, auto start-stop technology, and is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Perhaps most notably, the 2020 Ford Transit will be available in optional Intelligent-All-Wheel-Drive, making the 2021 Wonder the first Leisure Travel Vans model to be offered with AWD. Other chassis features include electric power-assisted steering (EPAS), four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and a 25 U.S. Gallon fuel tank.
The exterior of the 2020 Ford Transit features an updated grille, HID headlamps and a redesigned front fascia. The redesigned HID headlamp unit emits bright, natural light and features an LED signature surround, giving the Transit a unique look, day or night. Auto high-beam headlamps, front fog lamps, and automatic rain-sensing windshield wipers add further safety and convenience for the driver. Finally, all 2021 Wonders will come with standard 16” forged aluminum wheels.
Moving inside, the Transit received a welcome refresh to the interior and dashboard. Upgraded materials make the new Transit feel more upscale, while the familiar SYNC® 3 navigation system now features a larger 8” touch screen.
Standard driver-side and passenger-side seat swivels will help integrate the cab area into the house area of the Wonder on select floorplans.
Safety & Security
With Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology, safety is a cornerstone of the new 2020 Transit. LTV has some impressive new safety features to be included on the 2021 Wonder. Below is an overview of some of the active safety features that come standard on the Wonder’s Ford Transit chassis, as described by Ford.
Forward Collision Warning*
This system can alert you if it senses a potential collision with a vehicle in front of you. A display flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will pre-charge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)*
This standard feature can help reduce the severity of, and possibly eliminate, a collision with a vehicle directly in front of you. The system can detect a potential collision and provide audio and visual warnings. Automatic emergency braking can even apply the brakes if necessary.
This standard driver-assist feature can potentially lessen the severity of a secondary collision by automatically applying moderate brake pressure when an initial collision event is detected.
The standard Lane-Keeping System can help you stay in your lane, even during a moment of distraction. This smart feature scans your vehicle’s position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you’re starting to edge out of your lane. Having trouble staying on track? After you’ve drifted a few times, you’ll see a coffee cup icon, letting you know it’s time to take a break.
Auto High-Beam Headlamps*
You might not think of manually turning your high beams on or off every time you need to. That’s why the driver-activated Auto High-Beam Headlamps is so helpful — it can do that for you, automatically. When you’re on a dark road with no traffic, the high beams come on. But when a vehicle is approaching with headlamps on or traveling ahead with taillamps visible, the system will dim to low beams to reduce glare.
Other notable safety and security features include an anti-theft system with engine immobilizer, a post-crash alert system, tire pressure monitoring system, and side wind stabilization.2020 Ford Transit Features
