All-new engines are way ahead

They don’t just offer you advanced technology that has improved fuel-efficiency and power while reducing emissions. They also meet the forthcoming strict Euro Stage 6 emissions legislation. They’re advanced engines, in more ways than one.
Big on flexibility
The superb Transit Custom can meet a wide variety of business needs. Models include Van, Double-Cab-In-Van and Kombi body styles. You can choose from L1 or L2 body length, and a Standard Roof or High Roof. On top of all this, there are Series choices plus a wide range of equipment and extras. All of which helps you cre-ate the perfect Transit Custom for your business.
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.
A system that can help protect pedestrians
Optional Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Active Braking uses a radar and camera to detect vehicles and pedestrians in the road ahead, and even people who may cross your path. It can alert you to a potential collision. If you don’t respond to the system’s warning, Active Braking pre-fills the braking system and can automatically apply the brakes to reduce the severity of accidents, or help avoid them altogether (functions at speeds of up to 80 kph / 50 mph).
SelectShift automatic transmission
Both the 130 PS and 170 PS engines are available with a new six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. This is designed to provide a smooth and relaxing driving experience, especially in busy stop-start traffic. The transmission allows you to change gear manually if you prefer, using the facia-mounted gearshift. It also provides the ability to lock out gears in more challenging driving conditions, e.g. on slippery surfaces or steep gradients.
Cruise control that can adapt automatically
With the optional Adaptive Cruise Control technology you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it. If the built-in RADAR sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow your Transit Custom to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate to your chosen speed.
Forward Alert is a technology that comes as part of Adaptive Cruise Control and is designed to warn you if you accidentally get too close to the vehicle in front.
Durability meets practicality in the well-crafted cabin. Clever design provides plenty of stowage. And along with cutting edge technology, such as Ford SYNC with voice control, lets you use the cabin as a comfortable mobile office.
Ford SYNC. Advanced hands-free technology
The Ford SYNC system connects your mobile device* via Bluetooth and lets you make and take hands-free calls and control the music on your connected device using your voice. It can also read out texts you receive**. It also includes AppLink, which gives you voice control of some of the most popular Apps available for Android and iOS. A further feature of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assistance, which is designed to place a call with Emergency Services automatically in the event of an accident and provide essential information such as your vehicles location.

New, more comfortable front seats
The driving seat is fully adjustable, along with the steering wheel, so you can find your ideal driving position. There’s a built-in armrest too, while adjustable lumbar support, heated seats and a power-adjustable driver’s seat are options. In fact, while providing commercial vehicle standards of durability, the seats are designed to be as comfortable as those you’d find in a car. So whether you use the van for long distance journeys or frequent short trips, you’ll enjoy a more relaxing day in the office chair.
All you need to help you work on the move
The cab of the Transit Custom has plenty of features to assist you in your working life. If you choose a dual front passenger seat, for example, the centre seat is fitted with a fold-out table which is big enough for a laptop or clipboard. You’ll also benefit from class-leading stowage: a hidden stowage area under the dual front passenger seat, offering 93 litres of space; a concealed compartment in the instrument panel for your mobile phone or MP3/iPod (including a 12 volt socket); a glove box in which you can hang A4 folders; and of course, several handy bottle holders and cup holders.
