The newest version of the Ford Transit Custom will be released in January 2018. Redesigned inside and out, and with a range of new driver assistance functions alongside a new low-emissions ECOnetic engine, the latest edition of one of Europe’s most popular commercial vehicles remains well ahead of its competitors.
A redesigned front profile is accompanied by a completely reworked cabin that offers class-leading comfort as well as carrying capacity. Drivers benefit from a new instrument panel, softer and more supportive seats, and numerous stowage spaces for documents, provisions. An 8” touchscreen and Ford’s SYNC 3 system (responsive to voice commands and compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) allow access to a host of practical navigational, communications and entertainment functions.
The innovative nature of the new Transit Custom is also demonstrated by its range of advanced driver assistance technology. It will be the first commercial vehicle to come with the option of an Intelligent Speed Limiter, which takes its place alongside other sophisticated active safety features such as Traffic Sign Recognition, Cross-Traffic Alert, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
The strength and reliability of the Transit Custom’s engines have long been a major part of its appeal. The range available with the new model comprises 105PS, 130PS and 170PS versions of the manufacturer’s EcoBlue diesel motors, alongside a brand-new ECOnetic 105PS diesel with fuel economy of 49.6mpg and carbon emissions of just 148g/km.
The all-new Ford Transit Custom is available in a variety of different wheelbases, roof heights and bodystyles. For more information about this model, keep returning to the Gates Ford website or contact your nearest dealership.
