New Ford Transit van in Australia

Ford has launched its new Transit Custom one-tonne van to the Australian market this week.

The latest variant comes in two models – the short-wheelbase 290S and the long-wheelbase 330L, both with 2.2-litre diesel engines.

Built in Turkey, the 290S has a maximum load space of 5.95m3, while the heavy-duty 330L can boast 6.83m3.

Ford’s latest 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine develops 92 kW at 3,500 rpm and 350 Nm @ 1,450 – 2,000 rpm.

Owners of the all-new Transit van will be able to access Ford’s myFord Capped Price servicing and Vancare Roadside Assistance program to take some of the worry out of ownership costs.

“We are signaling to customers that the Transit Custom presents a very compelling reason to buy,” said Graeme Whickman, Ford Australia Vice President Marketing, Sales and Service.

The new Transit is equipped with integrated roof racks that fold flat when not in use and a full-steel bulkhead featuring a load-through facility and load area protection kit.

The Transit 290S will be available from February and the 330L will be available from June 2014.

According to Ford, the Transit model is one of the world’s most popular vans with seven million sold since 1965.
