The agile New Transit Courier is the most compact of the Transit range, yet it shares the renowned practicality of the larger vehicles. For example, there’s a generous 2.3 cubic metres of loadspace, so you can pack more into it than any other van in its class. The new model brings a refreshed front-end appearance that incorporates a reshaped grille opening and revised design for the lower fascia.
The cabin features a redesigned centre console design for enhanced ergonomics, including a new, larger 6-inch colour touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system that is available on higher series models, and positioned closer to the driver for improved visibility and ease-of-use.
Meeting the latest Euro 6.2 emissions standards, the updated powertrain line-up offers customers the choice of fuel-efficient 1.5-litre TDCi diesel and 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engines. All vehicles feature Ford’s all-new six-speed manual transmission in place of the outgoing model’s five-speed gearbox, offering improved shift quality, refinement and contributing to better real-world fuel-efficiency.
The new version is packed with advanced technologies, too. Including systems to keep you connected, hands-free and to help you monitor and control your speed. The vehicle’s engines have also been upgraded, making it more economical to run than ever before.
Cruise Control lets you set a speed then maintains it until you brake or accelerate. Via toggles on the steering wheel you can also adjust your speed while you’re driving.
In addition, the Adjustable Speed Limiter device helps you drive within a pre-set limit that you select. Not only does it help you to save fuel, the system can minimise the likelihood of you exceeding the speed limit too. As well as their practical benefits, both technologies can make long motorway journeys more relaxing.
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 6” 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”.
It may be compact, but with a load area of 2.3 cubic metres you get 10% more load volume than other vehicles in the same class. Behind the full bulkhead, there’s room for a Europallet and a generous 600kg payload capacity. Ingenious features help protect both your cargo and your vehicle from the rigours of working life. And because the van is built to tough commercial vehicle standards it’s not only made to last, but designed to minimise cost of ownership.
New Transit Courier is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, making it more economical and efficient. Once you reach a high enough speed, just slip your van into 6th gear and save on fuel while you’re cruising along. You’ll find the gear changes are smooth and quick too.
