Ford Transit

New Ford Transit Van

The van which solidified Ford as a major player in the commercial vehicle world; the Ford Transit set the benchmark for vans when it hit UK roads back in 1965. So much so, that the name Transit has become a general term for work vans in Britain – be they Ford or not. The modern day version of the Transit has evolved and continues to meet the needs of business nationwide.

Whatever your business, the two-tonne Ford Transit has the versatility to accommodate your needs. Ford boast that they have hundreds of variations and sizes. You can get the Transit as the more familiar panel or crew van as well as work-specific tippers or dropsides.

All Transits are fitted with 2 litre TDCi EcoBlue engines. You can choose between different engine powers and whether you want manual or automatic transmission. There is also the option to choose between front-wheel, rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Types of Transit Van

Panel van

There is plenty of load space in the Transit, with the Jumbo providing a capacity of 15.1m3. There are different wheelbases and heights to choose from if you needed something a little smaller and easier to handle. You also have the option to choose AWD with the smaller vans.

Double Cab-in-van

If you need to shift your team around, it is possible to carry passengers in your Transit with an extra row of seats. You still get the choice of length and height of the vehicle but load capacity is reduced. It is still a generous load space with the Jumbo offering capacity of 10.6m3.
We also do a conversion on the panel van to make it a six seater. This can sometimes work out a lot faster on delivery rather than a factory order if the UK is out of stock.

Special purpose

It is possible to get the Transit in different forms to fulfil specific needs. You can get a tipper or dropside for loads that aren’t suited to panel vans; such as sand, gravel or cement. There is the option to increase the load capacity by having a Luton van – perfect for removal companies. If you work in transportation of passengers, then there is also a minibus option.

Sizes of van

The length is denited by L and the roof height by H and a number afterwards
