Ford’s new high-roof version of the Transit Custom (which has sold more than 6,000 units to date in the UK) is available to order now, for delivery later this year.
The high-roof Transit offers 20% more volume than the equivalent low-roof model, resulting in a maximum load area of 8.3 cubic metres.
Ford claims that the van’s all-steel roof will support a maximum load of 100kg, while the load-through hatch in the bulkhead enables loads up to 3.0m in length, such as pipes or ladders, to be safely carried inside the vehicle.
The high-roof Transit comes fitted with a 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel with optional Auto-Start-Stop, which produces CO2 emissions of 178g/km. Advanced Ford vehicle technologies including SYNC with Emergency Assistance, Rear View Camera, Acceleration Control, Lane Keeping Alert and Driver Alert are available as options.
Other features include easy-to-clean load floor lining and ultra-bright LED loadspace lighting throughout.
‘This addition to the Transit Custom line-up brings all the style, economy and durability of the low-roof vehicle, and adds valuable extra cargo volume. We also made sure that the high-roof variant keeps all of those smart load space features that customers asked for when we designed the new model,’ said David Gregory, Transit Custom chief programme engineer, Ford of Europe.
