Ford’s reputation for producing reliable, hard-working commercial vehicles precedes it. With no fewer than four models in the top ten best-selling van list in 2018, it enjoys huge popularity and a proven record for performance, comfort, utility and more.
Heaps of space and versatility, coupled with the driving enjoyment and comfort you expect from a Ford, have made the Transit Custom the UK's best-selling van every year since 2014. It's available in two lengths and two heights, with a payload capacity of up to 8.3 cubic metres or 1,530kg. The sliding side door is wide enough to load a Euro pallet through, and the clever load-through facility in the standard full steel bulkhead allows you to carry items like planks and pipes up to 3.4m long.
Having been on the market for over 50 years, the Transit is still the definitive panel van, beloved for its versatility, reliability and spaciousness. Its cargo-carrying capacity is huge – up to 15.1 cubic metres with a payload of 2,300kg and a sliding side door for easy loading and unloading. Yet despite its size, it's a real pleasure to drive, surprising you with its smoothness and agility. The Transit comes in three load lengths, two heights and a range of body styles: we usually have multiple variants on offer, including tipper trucks and dropsides, themselves available in several lengths and drivetrain options.
The passenger-carrying version of the Transit is the Tourneo Custom, which seats nine people comfortably while still providing 922 litres of boot space, and is packed with technology. The second-row seats on selected trims are reversible, so passengers can face each other, and all the seats can fold or be taken out to increase luggage capacity. There's also a long version available for those needing extended cargo space.
Smaller than the Custom is the Transit Connect, which is derived from (and shares some components with) the Focus. Thanks to a generous helping of technology designed to make driving easier, as well as smooth engines and a comfortable cabin, it makes long journeys effortless. Smaller still is the agile Transit Courier, based on the Fiesta and B-Max, which has a turning circle of just 10.5 metres.
