Transit Custom has always been renowned for its toughness, functionality and reliability. Now, it delivers an even wider range of innovative features and smart technologies, plus greater efficiency and high levels of design and craftsmanship. The result: you can look forward to getting behind the wheel of a van that’s more refined and sophisticated than ever before.
Helping to keep you inside the speed limit
The New Transit Custom now comes with Intelligent Speed Assist, designed to enhance your speed control, enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, the Traffic Sign Recognition camera automatically detects the current speed limit (when activated), then the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit
More power, fewer emissions
With our advanced Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre engines, the New Transit Custom is designed to meet the tough new Euro Stage 6 emissions standards, reducing emissions and cutting your running costs. These engines may be smaller than the 2.2 litre Duratorq engines, but remarkably they deliver more power.
Seats designed for your travelling comfort
New front seat designs feature revised seat geometry, thicker yarn fabrics and finer yet more durable trims for greater support, extra comfort and more relaxed journeys. As for seating configurations, Transit Custom Kombi variants have second and third row 2+1 flamingo seats, Transit Custom Kombi Van has second row 2+1 flamingo seats and Transit Custom DCiV has a second-row triple bench.
Useful stowage everywhere
New Transit Custom is full of handy stowage spaces. For example, there’s easy access stowage in the instrument panel. A concealed, lockable glove-box is big enough to hold A4 hanging files and, depending on which Series you choose, it can be illuminated too. There’s also convenient under-seat stowage for valuables. And a retractable cup-holder is positioned between the driver and front passenger seats (only available with manual transmission). Even the vehicle’s doors are designed to maximise space with large pockets that can accommodate an A4 clipboard and a 2-litre drink bottle.
New SYNC 3. For an effortless hands-free experience
Ford SYNC 3 is an advanced system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system. Choose either voice commands or the 8” colour touchscreen with pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive navigation. Live Traffic can help you avoid the jams. You can even call up a list of local restaurants simply by saying “I’m hungry”*.
Maximum protection with a super-strong bodyshell
Boron and other high or ultra-high-strength steels make up more than 40% of the New Transit Custom’s bodyshell, including parts of the passenger safety cell. This makes it extremely light and crash-resistant. The design of the bodyshell has also been optimised, using over 4,500 computer simulations and 30 full-vehicle crash tests.
Useful load-through storage
The New Transit Custom has a distinctive 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. This means you can load items up to 3m long through the rear doors and into an extended storage area under the van’s dual passenger seats, even in the short wheelbase version. This smart feature enables you to keep valuable materials inside your vehicle, rather than on display on the roof.
Class leading loadspace
The New Transit Custom can effortlessly carry standard 8’ x 4’ boards flat on the floor or three euro pallets. Thanks to its convenient and innovative load-through storage area, it can also accommodate items up to 3.4m long (L2), without preventing you from using the front passenger seats. Overall, the van provides up to six cubic metres of loadspace with a bulkhead fitted, and that’s just the short wheelbase (L1) version: the long wheelbase (L2) offers up to 6.8 cubic metres. It has the widest side load door-opening of any vehicle of its type. And the sliding doors have a new mechanism which holds them securely open for loading.
