Ford Transit

New Ford Transit Van

Winner of Large Van of the Year in 2021 What Van? Awards and 2023 Large Van of the Year from the Parkers Vans and Pickups Awards, the Ford Transit is an excellent van with a long and respectable history as the most trusted van, with over 400,000 registered in the UK and many more worldwide. Ever since the first commercial Ford Transit was released in 1965, the Transit big van has dominated the market and won admiration from drivers and industry experts alike.

Power and savings for the planet and your pocket

Ford offers a range of powerful 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines, and the possibility of a mild hybrid electric motor (mHEV hybrid): a little extra help for the planet and your wallet. To boost power to the support for your engine and make this van even more eco-friendly, the Transit even includes a 48-volt battery for hybrids and an added AdBlue tank for diesel engines. For even more eco savings, the Transit is now available in a 100% electric version (E-Transit), as well.
Though the Transit most commonly comes with a six speed manual gearbox, there are also several transmission options and drive system choices — FWD, RWD, or AWD — to make sure the Transit suits the job. If you want even more control, there’s also an option for a ten speed automatic gearbox with the rear wheel drive option. This van was built to handle well no matter the season, weather, or driving surface, especially with its optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive that can be activated by pushing one button or as a response to road conditions. If you have a front-wheel drive, you can opt for Ford’s famous mechanical limited-slip differential instead. For even more power, the Transit can come with a Heavy Duty Truck (HDT) engine — giving you the power needed for the largest models in the large crew van.

Space galore

Available in four lengths (including the impressive Jumbo Transit) and three roof heights, along with GVWs ranging from 2.9 tonnes to an astonishing 5.0 tonnes, the Transit has something to offer everyone, from the adventure to business minded. There are four trim levels, including one specifically suited to rougher terrain, so you can make sure that your van is perfect for you and your lifestyle.
The Transit was made to haul it all — large pipes, carpet, tools, and even people. For those loads that need extra care, there are even tie down points in the cargo area. Access to any part of this van is made easy with sliding side load doors, full-height bulkhead doors, and a built-in step for the rear bumper. If you need more space for passengers, the Transit Double Cab-in-van option gives you a three seater bench in the front and space for up to seven people in total — plus all of their luggage — with second row seating.

Extras and upgrades

There are a huge number of customisation options for the Transit, from specialist van builds to a chassis cab for dropside, tipper, and Luton conversions. On the outside, this large van brings a fresh, iconic look — inside is intelligence and comfort abound.
Ford doesn’t skimp on technology when it comes to the Transit. They put it all right in your hands. With the addition of the Ford Sync3, FordPass Connect, ABS, electronic stability control, and numerous extra smart features — this van can practically drive itself. For instance, you will never be stuck with a flat or punctured tyre again, the Transit includes a monitoring system to warn you by lighting an icon on the instrument panel. It can even park itself! Need to monitor your fleet and the health of one or up to 5 vans? Ford has you covered — simply download the FordPass Pro app and monitor it all. You can even tell, from your app, if the van is locked and lock it if it isn’t — no more need to stress about that. As a bonus, you can even offer WiFi to your passengers with the on-board hotspot for up to 10 people or devices.
Even when it comes to looks, the possibilities are almost endless. Depending on the trim level, you can get coloured bumpers to match your van, 15 or 16” alloy wheels, leather trim on the gear knob and seats, as well as extra cladding on the wheel arches. You have your choice of lighting too — halogen projector lights, Bi-Xenon headlamps, and LED running lamps. Ford even thought of those who need to work or stop on the side of the road at night with lights bright enough to light the area around the van. For night time deliveries, Ford included bright LED lights in the cargo area as well. You’ll never be caught in the dark.
In typical Ford fashion, the conversion possibilities are endless. This van can be converted to fit the camper or road lifer with a camper conversion. Or made to order with a chiller or freezer unit for the caterer, food delivery person, florist, or local butcher. The Transit even makes for a great ambulance or Fedex van. Basically put, whether you wanna haul people, goods, or tools the Transit can do it. Need to go off the beaten path? Transit has you covered there too. No matter the place or the reason, this van was made to go! Even government officials enjoy this van so much that it earned the name “Britain’s most wanted van” from the metropolitan police in the 1970s.
