New Transit Custom 2018 arrives at Jennings Ford Transit Centre

Jennings Ford Transit Centre, part of Jennings Motor Group, has taken delivery of the bold new facelifted Transit Custom model, ahead of its official launch.

The updated Transit Custom, which features numerous changes inside and out, has been unveiled at the group’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough, prior to its official launch at the NEC CV Show in April.

Customers can also look forward to a new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variant, which is in the pipeline and planned after launch.

In addition to the striking new look, the 2018 Custom has been transformed with an all-new cabin and a host of new technology.

Alan Bailes, group commercial manager at Jennings Ford Transit Centre in Middlesbrough, said: “Customers have certainly been quick off the mark to test drive the newly designed Transit Custom, which is more efficient and practical than ever before, with additional space and a super stylish exterior, as well as offering more advanced technologies and practicality of class-leading stowage in a completely new cabin.”

The latest model is still powered by the Ford EcoBlue 2.0-litre diesel engine, but it has been re-engineered to offer new features including a new ECOnetic van variant, which delivers improved fuel efficiency and 148g/km CO2 emissions.

The most noticeable exterior changes to the 2018 Transit Custom model include a distinctive new three-bar grille, HD headlamps with daytime running lights, and a striking new wheel design.

Comfort and quality was the main focus of the interior, which was designed based on the new Fiesta.  More practical than its predecessor, driver and passengers can benefit from a new fold-out cup holder, new door panels, Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, as well as new seats with new fabrics and increased cabin stowage.

Customers can also take advantage of a new safety kit, which is an extra addition to the new Ford Transit Custom, and is perfect for using the vehicle on long distant journeys.  An intelligent speed limiter, which uses traffic sign recognition to automatically restrict vehicle speed to the legal limit and blind spot assist with rear cross traffic, are also available, alongside auto braking, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control, all of which add to the driving experience.

In addition to the new 2018 Transit Custom, customers can also take advantage of the new 2018 Transit Tourneo Custom model, which is on site and available to test drive at Jennings Ford Transit Centre.

Jennings Ford Transit Centre sells the award winning Ford commercial vehicle range to both local and national companies, from one-man operations to multi-national blue chip firms.
