A popular model with businesses of all sizes since its release, the Ford Transit has become synonymous with mid-size vans. Versatile and practical, it comes in a range of body lengths and heights to accommodate a range of needs, as well as a selection of styles including Tipper, Dropside and Custom variants.
As a panel van, the Ford Transit has an impressive load volume of up to 15.1 cubic metres, and is capable of towing up to 3.5 tonnes. This makes it a flexible option whether you’re carrying goods, tools or heavier equipment. As a Kombi passenger van it can carry up to nine people, making it ideal as a minibus or taxi. Wide-opening rear doors and a sliding side door make access easy on panel versions, enabling you to load and unload easily, while cargo restraints keep everything in place while you’re on the go.
A hugely practical option, the Transit looks the part too, with its three-bar grille and large headlamps making a strong first impression, and its sleek lines cutting a fine figure on the road. Step inside and it’s a functional mobile office, with under-seat stowage for a laptop and a fold-out table on selected models to act as a workspace. When you’re out on the road, the seats provide optimum support and comfort thanks to their contouring and thicker fabrics, while the SYNC 3 system enables you to make calls, access navigation and more.
Choosing a newer used Ford Transit in Essex means you can benefit from an engine that meets the Euro 6.2 standard, getting you around more efficiently but with enough power to haul your cargo. Up to 170PS is on offer, and Auto Start-Stop technology helps you to keep emissions low when you’re in urban environments. With AdBlue technology too, NOx emissions are reduced, making the model less polluting overall.
Behind the wheel, the Ford Transit is remarkably agile and responsive to drive, even with a full load. Recent iterations also boast a host of technology to make your drive easier and your working day more productive. This includes Adaptive Cruise Control, which assists on the motorway by helping you maintain a constant speed and a safe distance from vehicles ahead. When the evenings draw in, automatic headlights turn on as soon as the sensor detects low light levels, and Auto High Beam enables you to drive safely with full beam lights that dip when oncoming traffic is detected.
