Introducing the New Ford Transit Custom… So What’s Changed?
Added: 08 January 2018
Ford’s new Transit Custom delivers a bold new design, an all-new interior and enhanced productivity to European businesses. Available to order now, the new Transit Custom puts other vans in the shade - and it’s scheduled for customer delivery from early 2018.
Powered by Ford’s EcoBlue 2.0-litre diesel engine, the new Transit Custom has been re-engineered to offer significant new features and capabilities including a new ECOnetic van variant delivering improved fuel efficiency.
Loads of space, lots of style
Sporting a bold new front-end design with three-bar Transit grille, Ford’s one-tonne van provides drivers with the ideal mobile office environment, featuring a state of the art diesel engine, a completely new cabin that offers best-in-class stowage, improved comfort and ergonomics, and easy connectivity with SYNC 3 or MyFord Dock options.
Meanwhile, the new Transit Custom introduces a range of advanced new driver assistance features that share technologies found on Ford’s latest passenger cars, and utilise sophisticated sensors, radars and cameras to provide information about the driving environment around the vehicle.
Next generation technologies
The new Transit Custom is the first commercial vehicle to offer Intelligent Speed Assist, a feature that could help prevent drivers from exceeding speed limits, and potentially from incurring costly speeding penalties. As well as this, it is the first Ford van in Europe to offer Ford’s Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert.
New Transit Custom also brings enhanced capabilities to the Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system introduced to the model in 2016. The system is now even capable of detecting pedestrians at night when they are illuminated by the vehicle’s headlamps.
These new features add to the comprehensive suite of technologies already available for Transit Custom, including Lane Keeping Alert, Driver Alert, Auto High Beam, Rear View Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and Side Wind Stabilisation.
The Transit Custom was Europe’s top selling van in the one-tonne segment for 2015, 2016 and 2017. With this new model due to be released in the spring, Ford looks set to lead the way again. If you’d like to order your own new Transit Custom, get in touch.
