Your office on the move

The flexible dual front passenger seat comes with easy-access under-seat stowage that’s big enough to store a laptop, files and other useful office accessories. On Trend, Limited and Sport series, the seat is available with a fold-out table, stowed on the upper part of the centre seat back. This table has a useable area of 345 mm x 240 mm which means you can easily place a laptop or clipboard on it. The fold-out table also features two cup-holders, a pen recess, and an elastic restraining strap.

Useful stowage everywhere

Transit Custom is full of handy stowage spaces. For example, there’s easy access stowage in the instrument panel. A concealed, lockable glove-box is big enough to hold A4 hanging files and, depending on which Series you choose, it can be illuminated too. There’s also convenient under-seat stowage for valuables. And a retractable cup-holder is positioned between the driver and front passenger seats (only available with manual transmission). Even the vehicle’s doors are designed to maximise space with large pockets that can accommodate an A4 clipboard and a 2-litre drink bottle.

It’s easy to adjust the temperature in your cab

Transit Custom features heating and air-conditioning control buttons positioned within easy reach of both the driver and front passenger. The temperature control dial on the right features a max cool and max warm setting whilst the dial on the left controls the fan speed when the temperature setting is on some gradient other than max. Depending on the vehicle specification, the buttons between the two dials are for controlling air-flow direction (windscreen and face, foot-well), heated seats, heated windscreen, heated rear window, heated mirrors and air-conditioning.

Better lighting for easier, safer loading

Optional super-bright, energy efficient LED lights for the load area are invaluable when you’re working inside the back of your van. They’re another simple, yet practical innovation.

New Transit Custom Rain-sensing wipers

Wipers that automatically adjust to the rain

Rain-sensing wipers spring into action when they detect moisture on your windscreen, then adjust their speed to deal with whatever the weather throws at you. You can even choose from several sensitivity levels that determine how much moisture can build up before the wipers activate.

Clear your windscreen quickly, with Quickclear

This clever feature is designed to get you on the move quickly on frosty mornings. Just touch a button and ultra-thin filaments can superheat to de-ice, de-fog and de-mist your windscreen as well as help defrost the wipers.

New Transit Custom Ford Easy Fuel

Ford Easy Fuel, for foolproof filling-up

This useful technology makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, because the wrong nozzle simply won’t fit. Even better, as Ford Easy Fuel is a capless system, you’ll never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.

Wing mirrors that can protect themselves

To avoid accidental damage, power-foldable mirrors fold inwards when you’re parked. Tucked back, they also protect the stylish integrated indicators.
