Ford Transit is Auto Express Van of the Year

The Ford Transit has been named Van of the Year for the third year running, serving as testament to the incredible reputation of the commercial vehicle within the automotive industry.

The fantastic news comes from the recent edition of the Auto Express Awards, which look to celebrate the best of motoring across every automotive class.

First rolling off the production line back in 1965, the Ford Transit quickly developed a positive reputation and has been the best-selling light commercial vehicle in Europe for more than four decades. Although the model had initially been earmarked for the European market, it has since been launched across other continents to make it a true world car.

Today the Transit is available in a range of shapes and sizes to suit all consumers, including the two tonne Transit, the Transit Custom and the compact Transit Courier. If you’re in the market for a new van and want to experience the Transit for yourself, our Poole based Ford van dealership is the perfect place to head.

Transit earns heavy praise during award ceremony

In further details about the award, which can be read by clicking here, the team at Auto Express recommend the Ford Transit 2.2 125 310 L2H2 FWD ECOnetic as a roomy vehicle which offers an incredible rate of fuel consumption. In winning the award, the Transit beat the likes of the Fiat Doblo Cargo and Vauxhall Vivaro.

Steve Fowler, Auto Express editor-in-chief, said "Even 50 years on from the launch of the original model, Ford's Transit is pushing the boundaries of the panel van market and challenging rivals to keep pace." 

"Ford has constructed a huge model range to ensure there's a Transit for almost every business – buyers now have over 450 variants to choose from."
