Striking, productive and offering class-leading efficiency and loadspace, the new Ford Transit Custom is the latest offering in the Ford Commercials range.
This mid-sized van comes in a variety of guises, from Double Cab-in-Van to Kombi, and offers a flexible solution to your working day. Up to 6.8 cubic metres of loadspace is accessed by wide-opening sliding side doors and rear doors that open to 180 degrees. The low rear step makes loading and unloading simple, while the optional LED lights are practical in gloomy conditions.
With cargo space ranging from 6.0 cubic metres in the L1 H1 (short wheelbase, low roof) to 8.3 cubic metres in the L2 H2 (long wheelbase, high roof), with a full bulkhead, plus the ability to load three Europallets on the floor, the Transit Custom is as practical as it is stylish.
But that's not all. With a flip-up panel in the
bulkhead the underseat storage allows items such as
pipes and ladders of up to
3.4 metres* in length can be
With low side and rear load heights, a pallet-sized sliding door on both the driver (option) and passenger sides, plus wide opening rear doors with 180° hinges*, Transit Custom lets you make the most of all that space. Fitted interior lights (two in L1, four in L2) provide superior loadspace visibility, while super-bright LED lighting** is offered with four high-output lights providing superior illumination of the interior for a more comfortable working environment.

Transit Custom is available with an ingenious roof rack system that folds away flat when not in use to improve fuel economy and reduce wind noise, versus conventional roof racks. Capable of carrying loads of up to 130 kg (80 kg on Sport), the roof rack features a load stop and integrated T-slots that are compatible with standard roof rack accessories to maximise its capability and usability. (Option and accessory on H1 models only)
Ford Transit Custom’s 2.0L Ford EcoBlue is a completely new generation of advanced, high-performance diesel engines. More powerful, cleaner, refined and extremely efficient with low running costs, Ford EcoBlue diesels build on the industry-leading performance and technology of the infamous Ford EcoBoost petrol engines.
Key benefits include
■ Computer-optimised engine design for minimum noise and vibration
■ Lower nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in line with Euro6 standards
New from the ground up, the all-new Ford EcoBlue diesel engine enhances fuel efficiency by up to 13 per cent compared with the previous 2.2-litre TDCi engine, with fuel consumption from 46.3 mpg (6.1 L/100 km) and CO2 emissions from 157 g/km*, while delivering significant improvements in low-rpm torque for enhanced driveability.
Each engine in the range – 105 PS, 130 PS and 170 PS – uses state-of-the-art design, including low friction technologies, ultra-high pressure fuel injection and the latest turbocharger and combustion technology to deliver low NOx emissions in line with stringent Euro6 standards. What’s more, the new engine also benefits from up to 2-year/36,0000 mile (whichever comes first) variable service intervals to help further reduce the cost of ownership.
Traffic Sign Recognition is designed to automatically read standard format road- speed signs and display the posted speed limit in the instrument cluster. (Standard with Adaptive Cruise Control)
Cruise Control makes even the longest drive a relaxed affair. Simply set your desired speed and the system will maintain the pace until it’s deactivated via a button on the steering wheel or by pressing the clutch or brake pedal.
Adjustable Speed Limiter lets you set a maximum speed anywhere between 15 mph and 70 mph, and prevents you from inadvertently accelerating above your desired speed. (Standard on Trend, Limited and Sport, option on Base)
Using radar and a camera;
Pre-Collision Assist keeps a watchful eye on the road ahead. The system is designed to detect other vehicles and can alert you to a potential collision. If you don’t respond to the system’s warning signals, Active Braking pre-charges the braking system and can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or reduce the effect of any impact. (Option)
ECOnetic technologies such as Auto Start-Stop help to improve fuel economy, and with Ford SYNC available too, you can expect this van to work as hard as you do.
