Think of a van and you’ll probably think of a Ford Transit. The new version will be available in 2019, with plenty of updates to make sure it is still the best van for your business. Its engines are more efficient, its design is striking and carrying capacity has improved too.
The Transit has a distinctive new style to help you stand out on the road. Its large grille now has an eye-catching chrome surround, and the headlight units feature new LED daytime running lights – similar to those on the Transit Custom. They ensure that you’ll be visible at all times, and looking your best while you’re out on the job.
There’s a Transit for you, whatever you need it for. If you require something other than the classic panel van, you can choose the flexible Transit Chassis Cab. Your vehicle can be transformed into a tipper, flatbed, box van, refrigerated van and more. The new Transit Chassis Cab is tougher and more durable than ever before, so you can depend on it to get the job done. A new Ford Transit Minibus will also be available. Comfortably able to carry up to 18 people, the Minibus adds extra versatility as selected seats can be removed to increase the cargo capacity.
Packed with the latest technology, the New Ford Transit lets you work more efficiently. These innovations take the hassle out of driving, letting you concentrate on the job in hand. Blind-spot warning and cross-traffic alert take the guesswork out of manoeuvring, while active park assist will make parking a breeze.
Adaptive cruise control and trailer tow assist are available to further assist you, while clear cameras at the front and rear let you know exactly what’s around your van. Sample this impressive technology and you’ll never want to be without it again!
The New Ford Transit ensures you can always be connected. The completely redesigned interior now features Ford’s SYNC 3 software, accessible via the large central touchscreen. From here, you can control all your music, DAB radio stations, phonebook and satellite navigation (if fitted). You can still use your phone’s apps if not, as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included. There’s also the normal suite of USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
For the first time, you can order a FordPass Connect modem for your Transit. The system provides plenty of benefits like WiFi for up to 10 devices and real-time traffic updates. Combined with the free FordPass mobile app, you can also remotely check where your vehicle is and whether it’s locked or unlocked.
All of the Transit’s advanced 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines are Euro 6.2 compliant, so you can be assured that your van is as efficient and as economical as possible. A mild-hybrid (mHEV) version is available to maximise your fuel economy, and a plug-in hybrid version may follow suit. The engines offer up to 185hp and 415Nm of torque, giving you plenty of power for when you need it most.
