The award-winning all-new Ford Transit Custom took centre stage at Jennings Ford’s Commercial Sales Centre in Middlesbrough recently when it was unveiled at a launch event.

Bringing new levels of style, driver appeal and functionality to the one-tonne commercial vehicle market, the all-new Ford Transit Custom model awarded ‘International Van of the Year 2013’ was on display wrapped in an abundance of newspapers until its official unveiling at the Cargo Fleet Lane dealership, while customers were treated to free fish and chips.

Prior to the official unveiling, customers were invited to participate in a bit of fun and 10 people who successfully located an image of the Ford Transit Custom model, which was hidden on the wrapped van, received Ford jackets.

Representing a completely new generation of Ford one-tonne vehicles, the Transit Custom marks a major step in Ford’s commitment to refresh its entire commercial vehicle line-up by 2014.

Alan Bailes, general commercial sales manager, said: “The bold new design, car-like interior and outstanding driving dynamics of the Ford Transit Custom model is expected to attract a broad range of professionals, skilled tradesmen and small businesses.”

The new model has lost none of the legendary Transit toughness and value, however, combining class leading load-carrying ability, impressive durability and attractive cost-of-ownership – with best-in-class fuel economy.

Meticulous tuning of the suspension components and steering system has resulted in significantly improved ride comfort, along with more precise and agile handling. Like the new Ford Focus, the Transit Custom also features the latest Electronic Stability Program technology with Torque Vectoring Control for enhanced traction and stability.

A full range of Van, Double Cab-in-Van, Kombi or Kombi Van is available with many advanced technologies, including the Ford SYNC voice control and MP3/iPod and phone connectivity system.
