Introducing the new Ford Transit Custom, the most versatile, practical and efficient Custom there has ever been. It’s a vehicle that you will be delighted to work with and proud to drive.
There is an abundance of smart technologies in the new Ford Custom that are designed to assist drivers. For example, the Intelligent Speed Assist is able to use the Traffic Sign Recognition camera to detect the current speed limit on the road that you are travelling on. It then adjusts your maximum speed setting to keep you within that limit. The Cross Traffic Alert system is able to alert you if it detects oncoming traffic when reversing out of a tight space that has low visibility. Enjoy effortless driving with Adaptive Speed Control that allows you to set your preferred speed and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you so can sit back and experience less stress when behind the wheel.
If you’re looking for an effortless and hands-free driving experience, you can’t go far wrong with the Transit Custom that is soon to be available at Bridgend Ford. Use voice commands to control the navigation system, music and even your phone while driving. There is also a vibrant 8” colour touchscreen with the same ‘pinch and swipe’ gestures that you are used to on an iPad or a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. Ford want to ensure that this new van continues at the market leader in its class so the technology that you find in the cab is able to connect to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both of these applications are available to download in the App Store. This is the first commercial vehicle that Ford have produced that enjoys the functionalities of SYNC 3 but it certainly won’t be the last.
The first thing to mention is that the Custom has the widest side loading door opening of any competitor vehicle in its class, not isn’t that something to shout about. Not only is it the widest, but there is now a new checking mechanism fitted to the van that enables the door to hold securely for ease of loading. Now for the measurements, this new Custom provides six cubic metres of loadspace with a bulkhead fitted, now that is only the short wheelbase version or the ‘L1’. The long wheelbase or as you may see it written, ‘L2’ offers you the space of 6.8 cubic metres. The space car easily carry 8’ x 4’ boards when they are placed flat along with 3 euro pallets and even a few more items that can be around 3.4m in length.
