Leisure Travel Vans (LTV), a brand of Triple E Recreational Vehicles, will be building its 2021 type C Wonder van on the new 2020 Ford Transit Cutaway chassis.
“With all the new advanced technology, powerful EcoBoost engine, and of course all-wheel-drive, we are really impressed with the new Transit,” LTV General Manager Ryan Elias said. “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 type C van 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 306 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The upgraded engine features direct injection, auto start-stop technology and is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2020 Ford Transit will be available in optional Intelligent-All-Wheel-Drive, making the 2021 Wonder the first LTV model to be offered with AWD. Other chassis features include electric power-assisted steering (EPAS), four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and a 25-gallon fuel tank.
The exterior of the 2020 Ford Transit features an updated grille, LED 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. All 2021 Wonders will come with standard 16” forged aluminum wheels.
The Transit received a welcome interior refresh. Upgraded materials make the new Transit feel more upscale, while the familiar SYNC 3 navigation system now features a larger 8” touch screen. The unit also features a new dashboard.
Standard driver-side and passenger-side seat swivels will help integrate the cab area into the house area of the Wonder on select floorplans.

• Ford’s Co-Pilot360 technology
• Forward Collision Warning*
• Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)*
• Post-Collision Braking*
• Lane-Keeping System*
• Auto High-Beam Headlamps*
