The Transit has been in continuous production for more than half a century and possesses probably the most iconic van name of all – it’s certainly Ford’s largest commercial vehicle.
If you’re looking for a full-size panel van, look no further than the Ford Transit. Available in Leader, Trend and Limited trim levels, as well as three lengths and two heights, this accomplished vehicle is hugely popular with all kinds of businesses. Depending on which variant you select, load capacity ranges from 9,500 litres to as much as 15,100. Thanks to a side sliding door and a pair of 180-degree opening rear doors, you’re presented with flexible options when it comes to loading and unloading. You can choose your ideal seating layout too, from a three-person cab iteration to a double cab version that accommodates up to seven crew members.
The vehicle’s 2.0-litre diesel engine comes with a choice of 104bhp, 128bhp, 168bhp or 183bhp power outputs. The engine is typically paired with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while six-speed automatic transmission is available as an option (or standard with some 130bhp and 183bhp models).
A four-speaker stereo (with AM/FM radio) provides audio entertainment whenever you need it. Also included as standard are AUX and USB ports, and remote control functionality. Trend trims add a CD player, smartphone app integration, Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. The van is also fitted with a host of driver aids, including several Electronic Stability Control-related technologies. For instance, Curve Control automatically applies individual braking pressure if the vehicle ever begins to corner too quickly.
