The Ford Transit Custom is the mid-sized van in the Ford range, and combines hard-working practicality with modern technology.
The Custom is fitted with the all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engines. The fuel consumption is as low as 46.3mpg, whilst depending which output you go for the power can be up to 170 PS. Safety features of the Custom include Pre-Collision Assist, which warns you of the presence of vehicles and pedestrians in your path. If you don’t react to the warning, it will apply the brakes for you, reducing the likelihood of harm from collisions at speeds up to 50mph.
The loading area of the Custom is second to none. Loadspace lamps are fitted as standard, and ultra-bright LED lighting can be installed if required. There’s space for 3 Euro pallets and 8’ by 4’ boards can be easily carried flat on the floor. Overall there’s 6.8 cubic metres of space in the long wheelbase version, and the widest opening side door for a vehicle of its kind makes the Custom’s space easy to utilise. A unique feature of the Custom is the load-through storage area, which allows items of up to 3m through the rear doors and into a space under the dual passenger seats, even if you go for the shorter wheelbase option. This feature means you can keep your valuable items protected inside of your van rather than unprotected on top.
The level of technology continues inside the cab as well, with Ford SYNC. This advanced hands-free technology lets you use a range of mobile functions and more, all without taking your hands from the wheel. You can choose music, take and make calls, listen to text messages all while driving. AppLink also lets you control a range of popular apps and Emergency Assistance automatically calls Emerency Services in the event of an accident and transmits vital data such as your location.
The Ford Transit Connect is a reliable and practical van, designed around packing in volume and power whilst keeping a high level of interior finish.
The Connect has a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which has been awarded International Engine of the Year for the sub 1.0 litre category 5 years in a row. This engine delivers the same performance as a 1.6 litre, whilst having a 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower CO2 emissions at just 129g/kg.
Active City Stop is a safety feature of the Connect, which detects when the vehicle in front is within a near range and slows down unexpectedly. The sytem then automatically applies the brakes for you, reducing the chances of a collision. Another safety system is Traffic Sign Recognition, which stops you getting caught out by missing speed signs. It detects and identifies any signs you pass through and displays them in the vehicle, updating every time you pass through a new limit.
If you’re required to transport long items, the Connect’s load-through bulkhead has you covered. This extra space under the front passenger seat means that items up to 3m long can be carried in the short wheel-base, or 3.4m in the long wheel-base.
Inside the cabin, the SYNC 3 screen interface lets you control all the usual systems and more, including navigation and AppLink, which displays your smartphone’s information on the touchscreen. A DAB radio with USB and Bluetooth means you’re always in good company, with the sound coming out from four speakers. Radio controls are also located on the steering wheel, to ensure safety and comfort without having to move your hands away from the wheel. Meanwhile, the trip computer records useful information about your journey including your mileage and remaining fuel.
The Ford Transit has been around for over 50 years, due to its exceptional evolving design and great performance. The new Transit provides a great base for your business while on the move, and will get you from A to B in safety and style.
There are multiple roof height and bodylength options to choose from, allowing you to transport items up to 4.21 metres long. The new loadspace design also allows you to use this space more effectively with revised side-wall angles, tie-down points, loadspace lamps and wide-opening rear doors. The wide side doors have also been improved, with smoother opening thanks to a double action release handle and a latch to secure them open.
The Transit is fitted with the all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engines. The fuel consumption is as low as 44.8mpg, whilst depending which output you go for the power can be up to 170 PS. Auto-start-stop helps cut fuel consumption by up to 10% and Ford Eco Mode helps you drive more efficiently by constantly monitoring how you’re driving. Other efficiency-improving features include Acceleration Control and Shift Indicator.
Changeable driving conditions are no problem for the Transit, with its ‘torque on demand’ AWD system which works out how much traction and responsiveness is required depending on conditions. This transfers drive where it’s needed, to ensure that wet, icy or dry conditions don’t affect your journey.
The Transit understands that you need a mobile office, which is why it’s been designed with some great features to keep you connected while on the move. Mobile connectivity is built into this van, and charging points, USB connectivity and laptop storage spaces all make the Transit a functional working space.
The Ford Transit Courier, the smallest of the Transit group, is a practical and reliable van which offers a great driving experience. The courier is designed with safety and economy in mind, with features such as rear parking sensors, rear camera and cruise control taking stress out of your ride.
Ford SYNC ensures that you are able to safely stay connected while on the road. Voice commands mean you are able to control your music, make and receive calls, and even listen to text messages without having to move your hands from the wheel. The Courier also has a device dock to safely hold your mobile or SatNav, complete with a USB connectivity port to keep with in the loop.
The Courier has a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which has been awarded International Engine of the Year for the sub 1.0 litre category 5 years in a row. This engine delivers the same performance as a 1.6 litre, whilst having a 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower C02 emissions at just 115g/kg with the Auto-Start-Stop option.
Safety features in the Courier are top notch, with a number of systems working to keep your journey as smooth as possible. When driving on uneven surfaces or in inclement conditions, the Courier’s Traction Control System works to keep you in control by moving power to each of the wheels to give you the most grip and contact when accelerating. The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System gives you early warning if any of your tyres start to lose pressure, and Emergency Brake Assist helps you in situations where you are forced to brake heavily.
