It’s fair to say that the Ford Transit is a commercial vehicle icon. And it’s not hard to see why.The biggest Van in our range, it’s reliable, powerful, safe and secure and capable enough to cope with whatever you throw at it.Even more so thanks to a range of all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi engines that have increased power and fuel efficiency whilst reducing emissions. On top of this, we’ve engineered Transit for even longer service intervals to further reduce running costs.As always, you’ll still benefit from a supremely comfortable and durable cab and plenty of technology to make driving and your working day easier.
All-new Ford EcoBlue TDCi engines are way ahead
Transit features a range of innovative and powerful all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi engines. They don’t just offer you advanced technology that improves fuel-efficiency and power while reducing emissions. They also meet the strict Euro Stage 6 emissions legislation. They’re advanced engines, in more ways than one.
Big on flexibility
Almost every aspect of a Transit can be specified to meet your business needs. Models include Van, Double-Cab-In-Van body styles. There are three body lengths and two roof heights, offering up to 15.1m3 of load space and a load area up to 4.2m long. Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) options from 2,900-4,700kg. A choice of Front Wheel Drive (FWD), Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) and All Wheel Drive (AWD), 3 power levels from a range of all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi engines and manual or automatic transmissions.
City streets, motorways, country roads… Wherever work takes you, Transit will take you in comfort. And a range of innovative technologies make driving and parking easier. From parking sensors to systems that can alert you to obstacles and pedestrians in the road, warn you if you begin to stray out of your lane and even monitor your driving behaviour to detect any changes which could be caused by fatigue. It’s definitely a case of working smarter, not harder.
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 will 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 kmh / 50 mph).
SelectShift automatic transmission
The all-new 130 PS and 170 PS Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi 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 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.
As well as being built tough, Transit is also designed to make working life easier. You’ll find a wide range of ingenious features such as clever stowage ideas and seats that can provide a desk top. And you can use voice control to make and take calls on the move thanks to SYNC 2 technology. So while you keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, you can do business on the move.
