Ford releases new Transit variants
Ford UK has introduced new robust and road-ready trail and active variants for the Transit and Tourneo series.
The new Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail models were developed to be successful in harsher working environments. They have improved traction thanks to a new mechanical limited slip differential (mLSD) for Transit and Transit Custom variants with front-wheel drive, as well as an intelligent all-wheel drive.
Exclusive outdoor and indoor upgrades also ensure that the Transit Trail and Transit Custom Trail are equipped to provide comfort and performance under difficult conditions without compromising practicality.
Hans Schep, General Manager for Commercial Vehicles at Ford of Europe, said: “The Active and Trail models show how versatile and powerful the Transit series can be. From companies operating off the beaten track to families looking for a vehicle that is as adventurous as they are, there is a transit for every need. "
Transit Trail is also available with intelligent all-wheel drive for optimized off-road driving. The technology develops the basic rear-wheel drive configuration by sending up to 50 percent of the engine torque to the front axle based on the available grip in response to changing road surfaces and driver input.
A new Transit and Tourneo Custom Active model offers a rough SUV design and improved practicality with exclusive design quality and an improved specification. This offers more space and carrying capacity to enable a courageous lifestyle.
Active models are characterized by an SUV-inspired exterior, including:
Unique 17-inch alloy wheels
Signature Active Mesh grid
Additional paneling on wheel arches, body sides, rear bumper and mirror caps
Standard roof rails
A full-width Active sticker on the back is harmonized with Active badges on each wing. For users who need more skills under more demanding driving conditions and who can also specify them with the mLSD. It also benefits from a unique interior with a unique partial leather seat trim and a blue accent for the instrument panel for Tourneo Custom Active. The flexible seats can move in order to offer passengers more space or to enlarge the luggage space, which is further increased in the variant with a long wheelbase. The seats can also be swapped to create a seating arrangement for conferences, or completely removed for more luggage space. The seat attachment points can then be used to mount in-vehicle luggage racks to transport bicycles more safely.
Depending on the model and specification, active series are available with outputs of 128 HP, 167 HP and 182 HP. Automatic and manual transmissions are available in the entire range. The optional mLSD is available for manual vehicles. Customers can choose from a variety of body styles and styles to find a vehicle that best suits their needs and lifestyle, including:
Tourneo Custom Active in SWB and LWB can accommodate up to eight people, including the driver
Transit Custom Active panel van in SWB and LWB with a permissible total weight of 3,000 kg
Transit Custom Active double cabin in SWB and LWB with a permissible total weight of 3,200 kg
