Ford Transit Custom
The new Ford Transit Custom sets the benchmark for efficiency and loadspace, improves your productivity and will make a striking impression on your customers.
Transit Custom is also the first and only van in its segment to have achieved a maximum 5-star safety rating by Euro NCAP. Two of its innovative technologies, Lane Keeping Alert and Ford SYNC® with Emergency Assistance, also received Euro NCAP Advanced rewards for technology: the first for any commercial vehicle in history.
The mid-sized model in our new Transit range, the Transit Custom achieves best-in-class fuel economy, thanks largely to fuel-saving ECOnetic technologies like Auto-Start-Stop and Smart Regenerative Charging. Its comfortable, durable interior will make your working day easier – especially the cab, which functions as a mobile office. Loadspace is class-leading, too. And whether you choose the Van, Double Cab-in-Van, Kombi or Kombi Van, you can draw upon many advanced technologies, including the Ford SYNC voice control and MP3/iPod and phone connectivity system.
A less stressful, more connected working day
The Transit Custom’s technology takes some of the stress out of your working day, simply by making driving less hassle – especially in urban areas. To make life easier still, the cabin functions as a mobile office, with lots of clever stowage areas and a fold-down table, which is ideal for a laptop. And Ford SYNC voice control keeps you in touch (by mobile phone) and entertained, hands-free. Even the driving seat is fully adjustable, as is the new steering wheel, to enable you to find the perfect, most comfortable driving position.
Best-in-class loadspace and more
The Ford Transit has a hard-earned reputation for capability and practicality. The all-new Transit Custom builds on this, with many ingenious, practical design features to help you work more easily and efficiently – from class-leading loadspace (and class-leading access to it) to a unique, integrated roof rack. Equally importantly, the vehicle is also engineered to keep the cost of ownership to a minimum, with best-in-class service intervals of 50,000 km or two years. So the Transit Custom will not only save you hassle during your working day, it will also save you substantial amounts of money over the long term.
Performance, economy and car-like handling
The Transit Custom is powered by an advanced diesel engine, which can offer performance and economy in varying combinations. To ensure the power under the bonnet translates into a rewarding, controlled drive, no effort has been spared to deliver the best possible handling. While a variety of ECOnetic technologies ensures that the van’s performance is as fuel-efficient as possible, with minimal CO2 emissions. For maximum efficiency, there’s a broad range of ECOnetic models with a choice of short (L1) or long wheelbase (L2) and 2700kg, 2900kg or 3100kg GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass).
The new Transit Custom lets you choose how much power you need and what level of fuel economy. You can be sure there’s a combination that meets the demands of your work perfectly. The Transit Custom comes with an advanced and economical 2.2 litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, with six speed manual transmission and front wheel drive.
There are three power levels to choose from: 100 PS/310 Nm, 125 PS/350 Nm or 155 PS/385 Nm. Whichever you decide upon, torque and torque delivery are both improved, so the vehicle offers you plenty of power whether it’s loaded up or not – even when pulling away.
And, combined with Ford ECOnetic Technologies, the engine lowers the cost of ownership, reduces the van’s impact on the environment and meets stringent Euro Stage V emissions standards.
New levels of protection
The Transit Custom sets new standards for a commercial vehicle in safeguarding its occupants and pedestrians. In fact, it’s the first and only vehicle in its segment to ever achieve a maximum 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. It’s also the first commercial vehicle to have received Euro NCAP Advanced rewards for technology. These are for two innovative technologies: Lane Keeping Alert and Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance, which can call the emergency services for you in the event of an accident.
The Transit Custom Van is a functional load carrier, with a full-height, full-width bulkhead (glazed or unglazed), which separates the loadspace from the cabin, and the choice of two or three seats in the front. You can specify single or twin sliding doors and choose hinged rear doors or a tailgate.
As with the Van, you can choose two or three seats in the front row. In addition, the Double-Cab-in-Van offers an extra fixed row of three seats, behind the front row. Then a fixed glazed bulkhead separates the second row of seats from the loadspace.
The Transit Custom Kombi is even more versatile than the Kombi Van. In fact, it offers more than 30 different seating arrangements. It has the same Flexible Rear Seating system but with an extra – third – row of three seats. With all the seats present, you can carry up to nine people. As on the Kombi Van, the seats can be folded and rolled together to take up less space. And it’s quick and easy to create a generous load area: just fold any or all of the back row seats and move them forward, until they’re right behind the second row. If you prefer, the seats can be taken out altogether, giving you maximum load space.
