The Transit and Transit Custom Trail models are ideal for van drivers where work may take you off the beaten track. These are vans that are fully-equipped to tackle a multitude of terrains thanks to the enhanced traction of a new mechanical limited-slip differential (mLSD) on front-wheel drive Transit and Transit Custom variants, and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive on Transit.
The Transit Custom Trail is available in a range of body styles with GVM from 3,000 kg to 3,400 kg, including panel van, double-cab-in-van and kombi in a choice of two wheelbases. The Transit Trail meanwhile offers multiple body styles and wheelbases in the 3,500 kg category, with panel van, double-cab-in-van, kombi, single chassis cab and double chassis cab variants.
All Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail models are powered by Ford’s advanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine with a choice of 130 PS, 170 PS and 185 PS power outputs.
The Transit Custom Trail models also have the option of electrified powertrains with Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBlue Hybrid powertrains in 130 PS, 170 PS and 185 PS form; this is a unique offering in the vehicle segment. The 48-volt mild hybrid technology recovers energy during deceleration, stores it in a 48-volt battery pack, and uses the energy to increase fuel efficiency. So not only will you have a vehicle that’s tough and capable, you’ll also have all of the efficiency benefits associated with electrified powertrains.
For those with a love of the great outdoors, look no further than the Ford Transit Custom and Ford Tourneo Custom Active models. Uniquely styled with enhanced design and specification, these vehicles have a distinct SUV feel to them. So, whether it’s business or pleasure, the new Commercial Vehicle Active range is an excellent proposition! A little later in the year, Transit Connect and Tourneo Connect will also have an “Active” makeover.
Take the versatile Tourneo Custom Active’s interior; it can easily be reconfigured to reflect users’ demands. With flexible seats that can move to give passengers more room or increase luggage space, increased further in the long wheelbase variant. The seats can also be reversed to create a conference seating layout or removed entirely for more luggage space. The seat mounting points can then be used to mount in-vehicle racks to carry bicycles more safely. As 2020 is fast becoming the year of the Staycation, what better way to travel than in a stylish and versatile vehicle such as this?
