The Electronic Stability Program (ESP)1 senses variation from your driving line and automatically helps correct your position on the road by reducing available torque and making brake adjustments to each wheel.
Roll Over Mitigation1 helps Transit Custom stay upright during emergency evasive maneuvers and sharp turns. Sensors in the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system detect instability during these situations and cut off power to the front wheels, leading to reduction in wheel torque along with applying emergency brakes – thereby helping to stabilize the vehicle and prevent it from rolling over.
Sudden loss of tire pressure is the first sign of a puncture. If any of your tires happen to lose pressure before or during your journey, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System gives you an immediate warning by lighting up the icon on the instrument panel.
Pretensioners reduce excess slack in the safety belt webbing against the occupants. Once sensors determine a collision is taking place, the front safety belts are tightened prior to airbag inflation, helping to keep the occupants safer.
Hill Hold Assist1 helps you when pulling away on a hill by maintaining pressure on the brake system for an extra 2 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelarator. It’s also handy when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
Transit Custom is powered by Ford’s latest 2.2L Duratorq® TDCi engine, available in 100 HP (74W)1 with 310 N.m of net torque and in 125 HP (92 KW)1 with 350 N.m of net torque. All models come with a 6-speed manual transmission.
Transit Custom has a payload capacity of up to 1452 kg2, a maximum cargo volume of 8.3m3 (cubic meters),2 and a wide space between the wheel arches – allowing for storage of 1.2mx2.4m boards vertically or horizontally. Choose from a short-wheelbase (SWB) or a long-wheelbase (LWB), and a Low Roof (LR) or High Roof (HR).
The load-through bulkhead lets you carry cargo with a total length of up to 3.4 meters2 – including pipes, ladders and carpet rolls – in a dry and secure environment.
Tapering and near-vertical sides provide a more usable load space, allowing for more efficient stacking of cargo.
The tough, rubber-insulated floor3 enhances durability and makes it easier to keep your load space clean. Fixing points and eight tie-down loops are positioned on the body sides, leaving the floor clear for easier loading, unloading and cleaning.
