New Transit Custom Has Arrived
NEW FORD TRANSIT CUSTOM NOW AVAILABLE TO TEST DRIVE
Transit Custom has always been renowned for its toughness, functionality and reliability. Now, it delivers an even wider range of innovative features and smart technologies like Side Wind Stabilisation which helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control system to sense when the vehicle is being affected by crosswinds, plus greater efficiency and high levels of design and craftsmanship. The result: you can look forward to getting behind the wheel of a van that’s more refined and sophisticated than ever before.
Helping to keep you inside the speed limit
The New Transit Custom now comes with Intelligent Speed Assist, designed to enhance your speed control, enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, the Traffic Sign Recognition camera automatically detects the current speed limit (when activated), then the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit.
New SYNC 3 - For an effortless hands-free experience
Ford SYNC 3 is an advanced system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system. Choose either voice commands or the 8” colour touchscreen with pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive navigation. Live Traffic can help you avoid the jams. You can even call up a list of local restaurants simply by saying “I’m hungry”.
Keeping your trailer safely in line
Trailer Sway Control detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your vehicle’s speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels.
Class leading loadspace
The New Transit Custom can effortlessly carry standard 8’ x 4’ boards flat on the floor or three euro pallets. Thanks to its convenient and innovative load-through storage area, it can also accommodate items up to 3.4m long (L2), without preventing you from using the front passenger seats. Overall, the van provides up to six cubic metres of loadspace with a bulkhead fitted, and that’s just the short wheelbase (L1) version: the long wheelbase (L2) offers up to 6.8 cubic metres. It has the widest side load door-opening of any vehicle of its type. And the sliding doors have a new mechanism which holds them securely open for loading.
Spots the vehicles you might miss
Cross Traffic Alert is part of the new Blind Spot Information System. When you’re reversing out of a space and have limited visibility of the traffic situation, Cross Traffic Alert can detect oncoming vehicles and sound a warning. The technology illuminates a light in the wing mirror too (left or right depending on the direction of oncoming traffic), as well as displaying a warning on the multi-functional display.
Packed with the latest technologies and offering a class leading driving experience, the New Transit Custom will be a great asset to any business. Call us today on 01473 209182 to arrange your test drive.
