They will take the Aus­tralian van mar­ket in an ex­cit­ing new di­rec­tion with pur­pose-built ap­pli­ca­tions for cus­tomers who need the ul­ti­mate in ca­pa­bil­ity, com­bin­ing im­pres­sive load­car­ry­ing abil­i­ties with fru­gal turbo-diesel en­gines.

The Ford Tran­sit Cus­tom short wheel­base van ar­rives in deal­ers from Jan­uary with long wheel­base and the larger load car­ry­ing RWD Tran­sit ar­riv­ing in the sec­ond quar­ter.

Pow­er­ing the Tran­sit Cus­tom is a proven 2.2-litre TDCi engine that de­vel­ops 92 kW and 350 Nm.

Aus­tralian busi­nesses, small and large, will wel­come the Tran­sit Cus­tom’s new in­te­grated and stow­able roof rack, which folds away when not in use and twin bat­tery setup. Ford’s SYNC in-car con­nec­tiv­ity sys­tem, in­clud­ing DAB ra­dio and Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity is also fea­tured on the Tran­sit Cus­tom. Tran­sit Cus­tom will also fea­ture an ex­ten­sive suite of safety fea­tures in­clud­ing front, side and cur­tain airbags.

The rear cargo area of the Tran­sit Cus­tom will fea­ture a ro­bust pro­tec­tion pack­age that in­cludes a sealed load floor, rear com­part­ment trim board, front par­tial head­liner and eight load com­part­ment tie-down loops.

The new­est Ford Tran­sit Cus­tom is the lat­est in a long line of mar­ket-lead­ing Tran­sits, which have sold 7 mil­lion ve­hi­cles since the first model was in­tro­duced in the UK in 1965.
