In the Spotlight: Ford Transit Courier
Added: 06 February 2017
Buying a new commercial vehicle can be daunting. There are so many options available, it can be difficult to make a decision.
At Day’s Transit Centre, we spend our time helping tradespeople and businesses to find the ideal vehicle to suit their needs. Here, we’ve detailed the Transit Courier’s main features...
The Ford Transit Courier is capable, reliable and highly fuel-efficient - just like every Transit van. It’s also comfortable, rewarding to drive and full of smart technology - just like a like a Ford car.
Small but Mighty!
Its compact size makes it highly manoeuvrable and with one of the best turning circles in its class, you can negotiate busy, narrow streets and tight parking spaces with ease. Don’t be fooled by Transit Courier’s small appearance though; it gives you up to 10% more load volume than other vehicles in the same class. Take the folding bulkhead with ‘fold and dive’ passenger seat option and you also get a class-leading load length of 2.59m.
Less Fuel Stops
The Transit Courier’s award-winning 1.0L EcoBoost petrol engine, and advanced 1.5L and 1.6L Duratorq diesel engines, deliver outstanding fuel economy along with low emissions: up to 76.3 mpg and as little as 97g/km with Auto-Stop-Start and 62mph speed limiting systems.
Your Van AND Your Office
With mobile connectivity built in to the new Transit Courier, it has never been easier to do business from wherever you are. You have one or two 12V sockets, Aux in and USB connectivity and like every good workplace, your van is packed with smart storage. The deep centre console includes space for A4 files, so they’re always to hand.
For added security, an underseat compartment holds a laptop safely out of view. Even the front door panels make great use of space including a 1.5 litre and 20 oz. bottle holder in each door, as well as a useful coin holder on the passenger side.
Practical and Durable
Ingenious features help protect both your cargo and your vehicle from the rigours of working life. And because the van is built to tough commercial vehicle standards it’s not only made to last, but designed to minimise cost of ownership.
Side-wall mounted tie-down points help keep the load floor clear and are both DIN and ISO compliant. There are also body side fixings mounted at both waist and shoulder height, each rated at 30kgs load. Ford’s rubber flooring option helps keep your cab clean, protects the load floor and helps safeguard your van and its cargo from the knocks and scrapes of daily working life.
New loadspace lamps are fitted as standard. You can also specify the option of ultra-bright LED lighting if required - ideal if you’re working through the night.
If you’d like to experience these features for yourself, why not take the Transit Courier for a test drive?
