HIGHER: New Ford Transit Custom model
Order books are open for the new high-roof Ford Transit Custom, for deliveries later this year.
The van offers 20% greater load volume than the equivalent low-roof model, at an additional cost of £500.
It features 370mm greater load height to increase the distance from floor to roof to 1.78metres, and offers a maximum load volume of up to 8.3cubic-metres.
David Gregory, Transit Custom Chief Programme Engineer at Ford of Europe, said: “This addition to the Transit Custom line-up brings all the style, economy and durability of the low-roof vehicle, and adds valuable extra cargo volume.
“We also made sure that the high-roof variant keeps all of those smart load space features that customers asked for when we designed the new model.”
Ford’s Transit Custom is the only van in its segment to have achieved a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
The high-roof model also delivers advanced Ford vehicle technologies including SYNC with Emergency Assistance, Rear View Camera, Acceleration Control, Lane Keeping Alert and Driver Alert.
