By constant efforts to improve our customer experience, the New Ford Transit will be the most complete version ever with updated design, fuel-efficient technology and optimal entertainment features. With the new superior improvements, Ford Transit is expected to continuously be a business companion on the way to overcome the challenges of the pandemic and head towards further goals in the new normal" - Mr. Pham Van Dung, Managing Director of Ford Vietnam affirmed.

Exceptional fuel economy for peace of mind

Since its first launch, Ford Transit has been the perfect companion for its high-class design, as well as smart and convenient driver assistance system. It has been fully upgraded from the engine to the modern technology features, providing optimal operation for every in-town journey or highway road trip.

A significant advantage of the new Transit is the fuel efficiency - improved with the all-new Turbo Diesel 2.2L, which meets European standard, paired with a six-speed manual transmission capable of generating 136PS of power. This modern engine delivers exceptional fuel economy and low carbon dioxide emissions while maintaining the dynamic performance of Ford Transit.

For the first time being featured as a commercial vehicle, the latest 9.1 version of Ford’s Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), which is equivalent to technical advantage on the current midsize SUV of Everest or other SUVs such as EcoSport, will set a new benchmark for the new Transit's safety level. When the vehicle car is likely to moving out of control, the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) combined with the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) will automatically calculate and redistribute the braking force to each wheel, ensuring to keep the vehicle under control and safety for both passengers and the vehicle.

The new Transit is also the first 16-seat commercial car featuring cruise control, which is capable of automatically maintaining the speed settings, creating a convenient and relaxing experience on long-distance journeys.

New design

After a long period of collaboration with small and medium enterprises as well as travel and transportation service companies, the new Ford Transit boasts an innovative design based on practical experience and research in order to fulfill the needs of customers; thus promises to exceed expectations of a commercial vehicle.

Compared to its previous generation, the new Transit has a complete makeover with a more luxurious and professional design. The features of the front grille, fog lamp, and New Projector Halogen Projector headlamp with daytime running LED lights not only help the car look more appealing but also effectively support the driver to stay alert on the roads. In addition, the long tail lamp also brings a harmonious and modern appearance to the new design of the vehicle. Another remarkable improvement of Ford Transit is the full open sliding door which can provide a comfortable and convenient space for passengers and their luggage. In order to fulfill different needs of customers, Ford Vietnam also supports upgrading power sliding door as new accessories for the vehicle.

In addition to the brand new exterior, the new Ford Transit’s interior has also been upgraded to provide the driver and passengers with a luxurious and enjoyable in-car experience. First of all, Ford Transit has a new gray design for luxurious interiors that makes the car colorfast and suitable for the weather conditions in Vietnam. The felt seats equipped with wider recline adjustment would help passengers relax during a long trip. Furthermore, the last row of the New Ford Transit is also redesigned with the foldable rear seats and more streamlined under-seat space that can significantly increase luggage capacity with two levels of storage above and below the seats. The full opening rear doors can also help arrange luggage of passengers efficiently.

The entire dashboard of the new Ford Transit is redesigned with high-quality materials for the center console. The high-quality 10-inch LCD touchscreen helps drivers navigate faster and more intuitively while the ability to connect quickly to smartphones via Bluetooth will provide passengers with exciting moments during long journeys. This is an outstanding innovation of Ford Transit to help business clients economize their costs in an effort to satisfy their passengers.
