COLOGNE, Germany – Ford will offer the all-new Transit Custom as a range-topping Sport Van variant featuring a dynamic new exterior style.
The Sport Van will provide small businesses and owner-drivers with a highly productive vehicle that really stands out from the crowd. The new model follows in the successful line of Sport Vans that have developed a following among Transit drivers since first being introduced in 2007.
“The new Sport Van offers customers a stylish vehicle that makes a bold statement and delivers full Transit functionality and capability,” said Nick Readings, CV marketing manager, Ford of Europe.
The all-new Transit Custom was recently named “International Van of the Year” and Ford has since unveiled an ECOnetic variant that offers class-leading fuel-efficiency. The all-new Transit Custom Sport Van includes a muscular body kit and a fully colour-coded exterior, with body-colour bumpers, side mirrors, door handles and body-side mouldings. The bold appearance is finished off with stylish 18-inch alloy wheels on low profile 235/50 tyres, and the signature twin bonnet stripes in a contrasting colour.
The exclusive sporting style also includes partial leather trim combining Pewter seat fabric with charcoal black leather bolsters, and the latest interior technologies such as the Ford SYNC voice-activated, in-car connectivity package and a DAB audio system.
Sport Vans are equipped with the most powerful version of the Transit Custom’s 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel engine, delivering 155 PS and 385 Nm of torque. All vehicles also feature a short-wheelbase van bodystyle, with a 2.9-tonne gross vehicle weight.
The Transit Custom Sport Van is available to order now, with customer deliveries commencing in early 2013.
