The Ford commercial arm of the Ford Motor Company certainly has something to celebrate, as once again they have walked away with the prestigious accolade of ‘Van of the Year' for the Transit van in the UK.
This year, the Ford Transit van, which will also be celebrating its 47th year of production and has sold well over 6 million vehicles, now has another big reason to shout about being the UK's most favoured light commercial van.
This award just goes to show how, in tough economic times, the Ford transit is still a firm favourite for its durability, reliability and favourable fuel economy. Other features which helped to secure this coveted award were ECOnetic technologies like the Auto-Start-Stop, which has been designed to automatically shut down the engine when the vehicle is idle and the gearbox and clutch are disengaged. Plus a wide range of other energy saving and safety features which have been upgraded from the previous range.
If you are currently looking for new Ford vans, or possibly one of the smaller Transit Connect models, pay a visit to a van dealer such as Foray Commercial who can offer you the great advice, selection and competitive prices.
