NEW TRANSIT VAN
Smarter, more useful and more connected technology. More powerful and efficient engines. A striking new design. And, most importantly, improvements to the carrying capacity. This is the New Ford Transit.
The New Transit is packed with advanced technology. All made to help you work smarter and more efficiently. These include the Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert, both designed to alert you to other road users when changing lanes or reversing. Active Park Assist makes parking your van easier. And the new Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control helps to make long drives on the motorway less tiring and more economical. There’s even a new high level rear-view camera with Downlighter and front wide-view camera, so you can always see what’s around your van. It’s technology so useful, you’ll wonder how you did without it.
Power-assisted steering that responds to every situation
Electric power-assisted steering automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low speeds, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving manoeuvrability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering.
New LED daytime running lights for style and visibility
Highly energy efficient, these advanced daytime running lights provide a signature look that really sets new Transit apart: they’ll help get you noticed during the day and seen clearly at night.
Extra control during hill starts
Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2-3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Side Wind Stabilisation
Helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control system to sense when the vehicle is being affected by crosswinds.
Performance and Efficiency
The New Transit is engineered to be more powerful, more efficient and more responsive. A range of advanced engines let you tailor your Transit to your exact requirements. A new 10-speed automatic transmission ensures you’re always in the right gear for the road and the job. And a range of technologies, including Auto Start/Stop and Acceleration Control help maximise fuel efficiency whilst reducing emissions.
Advanced new engine technology
Featuring a range of advanced 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, the New Transit is more powerful and more efficient than ever. With four powertrains available, offering up to 185 PS of horsepower, you’re guaranteed to find the one that meets your specific needs. The New Transit is also available with an HDT (Heavy Duty Truck) engine for customers who need a bit more power. The engine can produce even more torque, making it ideal for heavier conversions.
A small electric motor can improve efficiency
To help maximise efficiency, the New Transit is now available as a mild Hybrid. A small battery-driven electric motor works with the conventional engine to help reduce fuel consumption when demand for power is low.
An additive that removes pollution
A selective catalytic reduction system uses AdBlue®, a urea/water-based fluid to convert NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle’s exhaust. To operate correctly, the AdBlue® tank of your Ford EcoBlue diesel engine must be filled with AdBlue® fluid. System warnings illuminate when fluid level becomes too low.
Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine. When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10%.
A 6-speed transmission saves on fuel
The New Transit is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, making it more economical and efficient. Once you reach a high enough speed, just slip your van into 6th gear and save on fuel while you’re cruising along. You’ll find the gear changes are smooth and quick too.
Re-charge your battery more efficiently
Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it and, whenever possible, avoids doing so when you’re pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.
Comfort and Convenience
The cabin of the New Transit is built for durability, practicality and comfort. Clever design throughout the cabin provides plenty of storage options. Whilst the materials have been chosen to withstand the toughest jobs and keep you comfortable during those long drives. And there’s a range of smart technologies, including a built-in FordPass Connect modem, that deliver benefits so useful you’ll wonder how you ever worked without them.
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”.
Ford Easy Fuel, for foolproof filling-up
This useful technology makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, because the wrong nozzle simply won’t fit. Even better, as Ford Easy Fuel is a capless system, you’ll never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.
Safety and Security
The New Transit has a range of sophisticated systems and advanced technologies designed to help safeguard its occupants and its cargo. Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses RADAR to help reduce the likelihood of an accident occurring. There’s also Roll Stability Control to keep you stable, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and state-of-the-art alarms to protect your van, cargo and tools.
Continuous protection against rolling over
Ford’s unique roll-rate sensor helps the Roll Stability Control system to keep the tyres grounded, specifically under conditions where there’s a high centre of gravity and when driving through off-camber turns.
Control features that adapt to your load
Load Adaptive Control adjusts the Electronic Stability Control according to the overall weight your Transit is carrying. This ensures control and stability whether empty or fully loaded.
Remote Control Central Locking with Anti-tamper door locks
The New Transit has remote control central door locking. All locks are protected by anti-tamper shielding designed to help prevent them being broken by force. Drive-away locking will automatically lock all your vehicle’s doors as soon as you start to move off. The system is fitted as standard and you can switch it on or off via the instrument cluster. To aid assistance, vehicles are fitted with a crash unlock feature that’s automatically activated depending upon the severity of the crash.
The New Transit is packed with ingenious features designed to help you work smarter and more efficiently. There’s 15.1 cubic metres of load space for all your cargo. And with a Power Side Load door and a 270-degree lockable rear door, accessing the load space has never been easier.
Exceptional Load space and access
The New Transit provides impressive load space in all three dimensions: load length, width (from wheel arch to wheel arch) and usable interior height. With 15.1 cubic metres of load space, you can fit cargo over 3 metres long. And with a carrying capacity of up to 2.1 tonnes, you’ll never be short of space or ability to transport almost anything. Wide side load doors, optimised opening height and a rear access step all ensure effortless access to your cargo too.
Tie-down points to keep your cargo secure
Side-wall mounted tie-down points help keep the load floor clear and are both DIN and ISO compliant.
Easy to step-up and into your van
A wide, high-grip step is integrated into the rear bumper making it easier to step into the cargo area and more convenient when loading by-hand.
Useful stowage everywhere
The new Transit 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 there’s also convenient under-seat stowage for valuables. 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.
Peace of mind with an anti-perforation warranty
The New Transit is backed up by a reassuringly long, 12-year anti-perforation warranty.
