A name that continues to dominate the commercial vehicle market, the Ford Transit delivers even sleeker performance than ever in its latest guise. Striking in its design, intelligent in its performance, this latest iteration of an unrivalled classic promises to set new standards of quality in the commercial vehicle sector.
The iconic appearance of the Ford Transit has undergone an extensive refresh in the new-look model.
Featuring a front end that incorporates a three-bar grille, bi-xenon headlamps, and stand out chrome surrounds, the vehicle is a commanding presence on the road.
What’s more, a host of metallic finishes - such as Diffused Silver and Magnetic Grey - give the model a premium sense of style, while a restyled bonnet ensures the new edition is more refined than ever.
A new edition means another opportunity for Ford’s engine technology to shine.
In the Ford Transit, you can take advantage of a selection of advanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines, each designed to deliver more power - and greater efficiency - than ever before. Up to 185PS and 415Nm of torque are available across the four powertrains, while CO2 emissions satisfy the Euro 6.2 standards.
For those with a desire to truly cut down on their environmental impact, a Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (mHEV) edition is also available.
Intelligence finds its way into the Ford Transit in myriad ways. But it is in the driver assistance technology where you will really benefit.
From the Active Park Assist helping you squeeze into tight spaces to the Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Tow and Cross Traffic Alert, you can safely operate the model in an effective and efficient manner.
Adaptive Cruise Control, meanwhile, lets you relax on longer journeys, while cleverly placed cameras enable you to see what’s surrounding your vehicle at any time - particularly vital when it comes to unloading.
What's more, if you are looking for a rugged van that can tackle a wide range of terrains, the Ford Transit Trail (pictured opposite) could be the perfect vehicle for you.
Keeping your workforce connected is easier than ever in the Ford Transit.
Available with the FordPass Connect modem as an option, you will be able to connect up to ten devices to the 4G WiFi* system and receive real-time traffic updates**.
The central tablet-inspired touchscreen - eight inches in size - provides further access to your smartphone which, with the FordPass Connect in-built modem and FordPass Pro app installed, also lets you monitor vehicle status wherever you may be.
Much like the technology in the Ford Transit that continues to get better and better, so too does the level of comfort provided for those long working days.
With more durable trims and upholstery throughout, intelligent stowage options and cupholders, and improved driver ergonomics, the Ford Transit delivers a car-like feel and relaxing ambience that will prove invaluable to the driving experience.
The latest variant to be added to the Ford Transit range is the Transit 5-Tonne which has some serious capability! The new 5T GVM is offered in two bodystyles, two cab sizes, three wheelbases and four overall lengths. The panel van has a payload of up to 2.4-tonnes and the chassis cab up to 2.9-tonnes. It provides the ideal basis for a bespoke conversion to support specialist customers such as the emergency services or construction and transport industries. Our Transit Specialists would welcome the opportunity to talk to you further about this new addition to the range and just how the Transit 5-tonne will support your business.
