Ford Transit and Tourneo launched

Ford Transit Custom 

“The Transit Custom is a welcome introduction to the South African market,” said Gavin Golightly, Marketing Manager, Ford South Africa. “This is a stylish, modern van that customers will be proud to have in their driveway. At the same time it’s up for the tasks required by this segment.”


The Transit Custom is available in a choice of short wheelbase (SWB – overall length 4.97 metres) and long wheelbase (LWB – overall length 5.34 metres) versions.

To provide customers with a wide range of payload options from 600-1,400kg, Transit Custom is available with multiple GVM options.

The 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi engine is offered in three variations. The 74kW model offers 310Nm of torque from just 1 300rpm, the 92kW version offers 350Nm at 1450rpm while the high-powered 114kW version offers 385Nm at 1 600rpm.

The three units deliver differing fuel consumptions figures but all come in at under 7.3l/100km on a combined cycle run* while emitting less than 192g/km CO2..  The high-powered 114kW is the most frugal using just 6.6l/100km and emitting only 174g/km CO2.

Ford Tourneo Custom 


“The Tourneo Custom offers the kind of style and performance which will have a very broad appeal, particularly to personal use customers looking for a spacious and versatile vehicle,” explains Ford Marketing Manager Gavin Golightly. “It’s a fantastic-looking people mover – inside and out – and offers outstanding day-to-day practicality while still being great to drive.”

The eight-seater Tourneo Custom is available in a 2933 mm short wheelbase version (SWB – 4.97 metres overall length), and a 3300 mm long wheelbase (LWB – 5.34 metres overall length).

At a height of less than two metres, the Tourneo Custom also comfortably complies with most car park height limits. This advantage is retained when the vehicle is fitted with the innovative deployable integrated roof rack system, which is seamlessly integrated into the roof and can easily be raised or lowered when required.

Tourneo Custom models offer twin side sliding doors as standard, with running boards below the doors for improved low level step access, as well as a strong visual differentiation. A liftgate is fitted as standard at the rear.

The Tourneo Custom is powered by Ford’s latest 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine.

The Tourneo Custom is available in two power ratings: 74kW on Ambiente derivatives and 92kW on Trend derivatives. Both are mated to a six-speed manual transmission delivering fuel consumption figures of 6.5 l/100 km on a combined cycle and 172 g/km CO2 emissions.

The Tourneo Custom has been engineered to deliver outstanding functionality, durability and low cost of ownership. The Tourneo Custom comes with a 4-year / 120 000km comprehensive warranty. Service intervals are every 15 000km with a Service Plan covering 5 years or 90 000km and 3 year /unlimited km Roadside Assistance.
