Whatever your business field, the Ford Transit Custom is flexible enough to meet your needs. The Ford Transit Custom has a unique feature designed to extend its load space. A full height, full width bulkhead divides the load area from the passenger cabin and this bulkhead has a flip-up panel at floor level. The Ford Transit Custom is agile and easy to drive, even with a full payload. To help make driving as relaxing and easy as possible, it’s available with many clever technologies.
It’s going to be a fine choice for operators doing mainly urban mileage, but if you’re carrying bigger loads or covering big distances on the motorway, the 128bhp unit will be better. Here there’s even more mid-range muscle with 385Nm at 1,500rpm allowing the driver to select a higher gear more of the time. Then, if you really need it, the range topping 168bhp (405Nm) option turns the Transit Custom into a seriously quick van. Short models can carry three Euro pallets, and all Customs have an easy-clean hard rubber load floor liner with tie-down rings in the floor and the lower walls. Extra-bright LED load area lighting is available for a small extra, and it provides improved visibility when working in the back of the van. If you need more capacity, Ford offers an integrated roof rack as an additional option. It’s capable of carrying up to 350kg, and the cross rails can be folded flat when not in use to reduce drag and improve fuel economy. In the cab, the front passenger-seat cushions can be flipped up to reveal a hidden storage compartment that will easily accommodate a laptop or small toolbox, providing added security. The Transit Custom has remote control central door locking as standard. For added security, the driver can open one individual door without automatically unlocking the others. The other doors stay securely locked, until you activate a switch on the driver’s door, and, in fact, you can use this switch to control the locking and unlocking of all the vehicle’s doors. Two different types of alarms are available, but they’re on the options list. Unlike the Mercedes Vito Dualiner or VW Transporter Kombi, the second row of seats in the double-cab-in-van models cannot be folded or removed to extend the load bay, as there is a bulkhead behind them. However, the nine-seat Custom Kombi has two rows of three seats that can all be folded and removed to create a full-length van if that level of versatility is required.
In addition to the standard three-seat van, there is the five-seat double cab in-van, which has an extra row of seats in the back with a bulkhead behind them and sliding doors with windows. This is also available in L1 and L2 body lengths. And then there is the Tourneo Custom, which is the passenger carrying variant of the Transit Custom. It’s recognisable from the front thanks to its five-bar grille, compared to a three-bar grille for the standard Transit Custom.
The Transit Custom earned a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating when it was launched in 2012, so it sets the standard to which other panel vans have aspired in recent years. These days, the latest car safety tech is commonplace in the van market, but the latest Custom has moved the game on again.
