When Jennings Ford, part of the Jennings Motor Group, was given one of Ford’s commercial vehicles for an exclusive preview ahead of its official launch, they wanted to prove just how spacious it was.
Jennings Ford’s Commercial sales centre on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough, was given Ford’s new Transit V363 single-cab drop side model for one week, during which time customers were invited to preview the model prior to its official launch towards the end of the year.
The new V363 model not only offers a new more powerful and highly efficient engine range, which meets the stringent Stage V European emissions standards, but it is also spacious enough to quite comfortably accommodate another member of the Ford commercial family – the recently launched Ford Transit Courier.
Alan Bailes, commercial general manager, said; “When the Transit V363 came to the showroom for the preview week, it started off as a bit of a joke as to whether it would be possible to get the new Ford Transit Courier on the back, but sure enough we managed it.
“The previews we have held in the past have always been successful, but this one certainly turned heads and generated sales enquiries at the dealership.”
Despite fitting comfortably on the back of the Transit single-cab drop side, the Ford Transit Courier with its award-winning 1.0L EcoBoost petrol engine and advanced 1.5L and 1.6L Duratorq diesel engines, boasts a load area of up to 2.4cu.m giving customers 10% more load volume than other vehicles in the same class.
In addition to this, Ford’s new Courier model delivers outstanding fuel economy along with low emissions up to 76.3mp and as little as 97g/km with Auto-Stop-Start and 62mph speed limiting systems.
Customers can take advantage of a number of advanced technology options including rear view camera, parking distance sensors and Hill Start Assist to make journeys safe and stress-free.
Ford’s SYNC with voice control allows you to make and receive phone calls hands-free, in addition to having the facility to read text messages aloud.
Jennings Ford’s Commercial Sales Centre in Middlesbrough sells the entire Ford Commercial range to local and national companies. Everything from the Ford Transit, the Transit Connect, the Transit Custom and Fiesta Van, to the Tourneo Connect, Tourneo and Transit Mini-bus, in addition to Ford’s multi-purpose range including the Tipper, Chassis Cab and 4x4 Ranger is on display and available to test drive.
