New High for Transit Custom
Ford’s new high-roof version of the multi-award-winning Transit Custom van is available to order now, offering 20 per cent greater load volume than the equivalent low-roof model at an additional cost of just £500 plus VAT.
This latest version of the 2013 International Van of the Year features 370mm greater load height than the low-roof model to increase the distance from floor to roof to 1.78m, and offering a maximum load volume of up to 8.3 cubic metres (with a full bulkhead fitted).
The Transit Custom high-roof is unique in the segment for its all-steel roof that offers more durability than a composite roof construction, along with roof rack compatibility and a maximum load of 100kg.
Innovative load space features include:
- Load-through hatch in bulkhead enabling loads up to 3.0m in length, such as pipes or ladders, to be safely carried inside the vehicle (up to 3.4m in long wheelbase model)
- DIN and ISO compliant tie-down hooks located on the body sides to increase usable load area and allow complete cleaning of the floor
- Tailored, one-piece, easy-to-clean load floor liner offering enhanced durability and simple cleaning
- Ultra-bright LED loadspace lighting with four high-performance LED units
The high-roof Transit Custom also offers outstanding fuel economy with possible CO2 emissions as low as 178g/km delivered by the improved UK-built 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel with optional Auto-Start-Stop. Cost of ownership is further minimised by the longest service intervals in the class at two years/30,000 miles.
The Transit Custom is the only van in its segment to have achieved a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and the high-roof model also delivers advanced Ford vehicle technologies including SYNC with Emergency Assistance, Rear View Camera, Acceleration Control, Lane Keeping Alert and Driver Alert as options.
