Performance and Efficiency

Front wheel drive, command driving position, advanced power steering and sophisticated chassis design… the Transit Courier delivers a driving experience you wouldn’t expect from a van. You have car-like levels of powertrain choice too: Diesel or Petrol, including the revolutionary 1.0L EcoBoost engine. And even fully laden, ECOnetic technologies will help maximise your van’s fuel-efficiency.

Features shown on this page may only be available on selected models. Where available, these features may be optional extras at additional cost. For more info, download price list to view current UK specifications.

1.0 EcoBoost

Get the most out of your engine

The innovative 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6-litre engine (up to 100PS) whilst delivering around 24% better fuel economy and 25% lower CO2 emissions at just 115/km with optional Auto-Start-Stop. No wonder Ford EcoBoost has been awarded International Engine of the Year for the sub 1.0-litre category for a record five years in succession.

1.5L Duratorq TDCi Ford ECOnetic powertrain

Choose from an economical 1.5L Duratorq TDCi engine, available with either 75PS or 95PS. Keep fuel consumption and CO2 emissions as low as 3.7L/100km and 96g/km (Kombi 95PS 1.5L Duratorq TDCi with optional Auto-Start-Stop and 62mph speed limiter specified).

Auto Start Stop

Use less fuel with Auto-Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto-Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).

Make light work of every turn

The turning circle is an exceptionally tight 10.5 metres and can be made with just 2.6 turns on the steering wheel, lock-to-lock. The result: easier parking in tigt spaces and better manoeuvrability in narrow streets.
