THE US TO GET THE NEW EUROPEAN SPEC DIESEL TRANSIT RANGE
Ford Motor Company's commercial arm has recently announced they will be re-introducing diesel models back into the mainstream light commercial sector in the USA after a 3 year absence in the Transit range. This will be realised with the introduction of the new Ford Transit Custom Cargo Van, which is expected to be available next year for US customers.
Ford will be introducing their new light commercial van, which will be powered with the company's new DuraTorq diesel engine, into the USA market. This is a response to the demand for diesel powered small to medium sized commercial vehicles with current the economic slowdown and the rise in fuel costs.
This new Ford Transit van model, the ‘Custom Cargo', will feature the same engine now being launched in the UK and across Europe: the new 2.2-liter turbocharged DuraTorq diesel engine. It is expected that Ford will offer the same European engine variants; ranging from 98hp, 123hp, and 153hp, which offer excellent fuel efficiency and low emission figures.
So, if you are currently looking for new Ford vans in the UK, or possibly one of the smaller Transit Connect models, why not pay a visit to a well respected UK van dealer such as Foray Commercial offering all customers great advice, choice and competitive prices?
