The Transit Custom from Ford introduces a new level of functionality, style and efficiency for the light commercial vehicle market. This van is well equipped to make your life easier and optimise productivity. The design prioritises the comfort and safety of the driver while maximising fuel and space economy.
From the outside, the distinctive shape and styling of the Custom is instantly recognisable as a hallmark of quality. The aerodynamic shape is designed to be as fuel efficient as possible without compromising on space or access. The hardwearing components on the exterior are durable enough to withstand years of hard work and still be reliable day after day. Loading is easy thanks to a range of practical features; a load-through hatch in the bulkhead, many fixing points and tie-down hooks, and the option to lock the rear doors in the open position.
The spacious cab, designed for three people, is comfortable even on long journeys, with superior upholstery and a fully adjustable driving position. The ergonomically sound seats have everything you need in easy reach, including an array of practical storage compartments. The interior of the Transit Custom is hard-wearing to meet the demands of its working life, yet refined and relaxed so you can enjoy the drive.
The Transit Custom comes with a 2.2-litre TDCi diesel engine with 99bhp, 123bhp or 153bhp. Whatever level of power you need, the engine delivers it to the road with plenty of torque and improved torque delivery. With smooth and responsive engines, you can enjoy a lively drive and be assured that there will always be enough power to pull the load you're carrying.
Impressive fuel economy from all three engine choices means that the Transit Custom goes further for your money with help from innovative fuel saving features. ECOnetic technology also minimises CO2 emissions to just 162g/km. The option of Acceleration Control reduces wear and tear on the engine, and cuts fuel consumption by up to 15%.
Engineered to meet strict Euro6 emissions standards, the Transit Custom’s all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engines combine outstanding performance and power with lower fuel consumption and emissions, from as low as 6.1 L/100km (46.3 mpg) and 157g/km CO 2 with optional Start/Stop. To lower running costs further, service intervals are now up to 36,000 miles or 2 years. Available in three power outputs of 105 PS/ 360 NM, 130 PS / 385 NM and 170PS / 405 NM, there’s an option to suit your needs, whether you carry light loads, operate at full payload, or need to tow.

The focus in the Transit Custom is on technology to make life easier and take the hassle out of driving. The cabin is designed to function as a mobile office space while being incredibly tough and durable. The cab of the Transit Custom has plenty of features to assist you in your working life. If you choose a dual front passenger seat, for example, the centre seat is fitted with a fold-out table which is big enough for a laptop or clipboard. You’ll also benefit from class-leading stowage: a hidden stowage area under the dual front passenger seat, offering 93 litres of space; a concealed compartment in the instrument panel for your mobile phone or MP3/iPod (including a 12 volt socket); a glove box in which you can hang A4 folders; and of course, several handy bottle holders and cup holders.
