Ford introduces new Transit Custom Sport Van in the UK

Article by Anita Panait, on December 7, 2012

Ford will be offering the all-new Transit Custom as a range-topping Sport Van variant that boasts of a dynamic new exterior style. The newest variant of the Sport Vans means that businesses and owner-drivers in the United Kingdom could have an attention-grabbing vehicle. According to David Petts, Ford Britain CV marketing manager, the new Ford Transit Custom Sport Van provides customers a stylish vehicle that “makes a bold statement” and delivers full Transit functionality and capability.

The Sports Vans have gained a following among Transit drivers since its introduction in 2007. The Transit Custom Sport Van features a brawny body kit and a color-coded exterior, complemented by body-color bumpers, side mirrors, door handles and body-side moldings. Completing the van’s bold looks are stylish 18-inch alloy wheels on low profile 235/50 tyres as well as signature twin bonnet stripes in a contrasting color. 

The Ford Transit Custom Sport Van’s exclusive sporting style is further complemented by partial leather trim combining Pewter seat fabric with charcoal black leather bolsters. It is endowed with the latest interior technologies like the Ford SYNC voice-activated, in-car connectivity package and a DAB audio system.

The Sport Van is powered by the Transit Custom’s Dagenham-built 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel engine that provides up to 155 PS and 385 Nm of torque. The Sport Van features a short-wheelbase van body style, with a 2.9-ton gross vehicle weight. Interested buyers could place their orders for the Transit Custom Sport Van in early 2013.
