Ford commercials carry off four What Van? awards

The Ford Transit Custom has made history by retaining the prestigious Van of the Year accolade in the 2014 What Van? Awards.

The Transit Custom’s combination of innovation, interior quality, equipment, driving experience and sales success see it become the first vehicle to retain the Van of the Year Award from the industry’s premier light commercial vehicle publication.

“It was a difficult decision to break with tradition and give our biggest award to a van that was victorious the previous year, but the Transit Custom’s impact on the light commercial vehicle market means the success is warranted,” said What Van? Editor Paul Barker. “It’s been a deservedly successful first year for the Custom, a vehicle that has moved the sector on in a whole series of ways.

”Ford also picked up awards for the Fiesta Van in the light van category, the Transit Custom in the medium van sector, and the Ranger won best pick-up.
