This mid-sized van is often favoured for its versatility, helping all sorts of businesses get around with the equipment and items they need every day.
Bold in its looks, with a robust body, flat-fronted nose, oversized headlights and deep contours, the Transit Custom means business. It’s typically a panel van with the option of Double Cab-in-Van giving you an extra row of seats, and it also comes in a Kombi body style for taxi services. There’s a payload area of up to 6,000 litres, and the load-through area allows you to carry items up to three metres long. To get all this space, choose the largest option. You can use either the rear door or side doors to get to the tools you need. The raised seating position will make you feel in control and puts you comfortably in command.
The Transit Custom comes in four trim levels: Base, Trend, Limited and Sport. Upgrade from the Base to get Ford SYNC which connects to your phone, as well as air conditioning and extra styling features inside and out.
As standard, the Transit Custom is fitted with a 2.0-litre TDCi diesel unit which enables the van to perform with a full cargo. You can choose the power output, with three options on offer: 103bhp, 128bhp and 167bhp. Opt for one with start/stop technology to save money on fuel.
Ford SYNC lets you use your smartphone apps while on the move. It can even read messages aloud. It’s all operated via a screen in the dashboard and it includes emergency assistance should you need help while you’re on the road.
Advanced control systems include Traction, Roll Stability and Load Adaptive, helping the Transit Custom maintain a steady performance at all times. There’s the option to add Visibility Packs to get extra support while you’re driving. The Premium pack includes Adaptive Cruise control, a rear-view camera and Lane Keeping Alert.
