Ford reveals new Transit Sport range
Ford has revealed details of its updated and upgraded Transit Sport range of vans.
The range is headed by the Transit Custom Sport, with the new 185PS version hailed as its ‘most powerful ever’ due to its enhanced 2.0 litre EcoBlue diesel engine.
The Custom Sport is available in a choice of bodystyles, including van, kombi and double-cab-in-van models, in both short and long wheelbase versions. Sales of the Transit Custom Sport rose by 58% in 2018 compared to 2017, and Ford delivered its best commercial sales in 25 years in 2018. It sold over 380,000 commercial vehicles across its 20 European markets.
The other models in the line-up are the Transit Connect Sport van and the Transit Courier Sport van.
“Not everyone is satisfied with a standard white van: Ford’s Sport series vans appeal to customers who want to make a statement while still delivering the tough, capable character that has made the Transit family best sellers,” said Hans Schep, general manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe.
The Transit Custom Sport is priced from £32,270, the Transit Connect Sport from £20,405 and the Transit Courier Sport from £14,745.
