“Tougher, smarter and more efficient than anything else on the road – It’s the ultimate people mover!”
With more than half a century of motoring heritage to its name, Ford Transits are legendary. Ford’s one-tonne Transit Custom range offers an outstanding breadth of capabilities that include roof height and wheelbase options, offering payloads up to 1450kg and body styles including van, kombi and bus. The Transit Custom sets a new standard providing drivers with an ideal mobile office environment with best-in-class stowage. Excellent ride quality is guaranteed, whether the cargo– or people-carrying model is the right choice for the job.
Ford Transit Custom is engineered for durability and tested for toughness. A relentless testing program pushed it to extremes operating in frost-covered -40°C at 4500-metre altitudes to sunbaked stretches towing fully laden trailers up long inclines in 50°C heat. Doors have been subjected to an intense regime of 300.000 slam-cycles in real-world conditions.
Transit Custom’s interior uses allergy-friendly materials. The air conditioning also has a high-performance pollen filter to prevent dust and pollen entering the passenger compartment. All-day comfort is enhanced by seat designs featuring optimized support with focus on quality, durability and appearance.
Technology combined with efficient aerodynamics has resulted in outstanding fuel economy across the range making every drop of fuel count while reducing running costs and CO2 emissions. A shift indicator light on the instrument panel reminds when it is time to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It is a simple yet effective way to help make every journey more economical.
Ford Smart Regenerative Charging maintains efficient battery charge levels, which reduces overall fuel use by only charging the battery, when it needs it and, when possible, avoids doing so when the accelerator is pressed.
A full line-up of passive and active safety features makes use of the latest technology to protect the driver, passengers and cargo. Safety features extend to include air bags, belt-minder and 3-point seat-belts for all occupants. Advanced driver assistance features include anti-lock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability programme (ESP) with hill launch assist, load adaptive control, roll-over mitigation and the optional trailer sway control.
Ford Transit stands out as the first and only light commercial vehicle to be awarded for its excellent range of safety features with a 5-star NCAP safety rating. This vehicle is much more than simply a way to transport passengers and equipment from A to B.
The generously proportioned interior of the Ford Tourneo Custom people-mover unites space with smart versatility. It can carry up to eight or nine passengers in absolute comfort. Each seatback can fold forward to create flat workspace. The whole seat can fold forward again to take up minimal space. For more room, each seat can be removed. The flexibility of this innovative seating system can create over 30 different seating and load space configurations to suit any occasion.
