The Transit Courier is the smallest van in Ford’s commercial vehicle range, and a new, improved model is due shortly, featuring a host of updates – inside and out.
The Courier is already the most car-like of Ford’s vans, and now it’s even more so, with, for example, the introduction of a three-louver radiator grille and redesigned lower bumper. The latter helps deliver enhanced aerodynamics, as does Active Grille Shutter, which improves air-flow efficiency and quickens warm-up times, among other things. Trend grades now feature body-coloured fixtures as standard, including bumpers, door handles and door mirrors.
Two new paint finishes – Metal Blue and Diffused Silver – replace the outgoing Iceberg and Tectonic Silver colours, and, appropriately, Sport trims feature racy body stripes.
Inside, this compact van features a refashioned centre console, which is available with a six-inch touchscreen and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system. Standard with newly added Limited trims – and optional with Base, Kombi, Trend and Sport grades, the display is larger than before and much easier for the driver to reach. (Trend trims and above all feature SYNC 3).
The van’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol and 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engines have each been refined in order to deliver enhanced efficiency. To the same end, five-speed manual transmission has been replaced by six-speed gearboxes, which are fitted as standard.
