Transit Range Loaded With Honours
The all-new Ford Transit range returned from this year’s Van Fleet World Honours laden with five awards, including the overall Van Manufacturer of the Year for the Blue Oval for the second successive year.
There were awards for the recently-launched Transit Connect, which won both Best New Van and Best Small Van categories, and for Transit Custom, which was judged Best Medium Van and also won the Security Award. The Ford Ranger earned Best Pick-Up.
Ford Transit has a long history of success in the Fleet World Honours, which are presented by the trade publication to manufacturers, service companies and individuals who have achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector. It is the fifth year in a row that the Transit family has been recognised.
Van Fleet World Managing Editor John Kendall said of Ford’s Van Manufacturer of the Year title: “Not a difficult choice for the judges given the comprehensive renewal of Ford’s van range that is still going on. To date they have all been class-leading to drive, too, which makes Ford a worthy winner.”
