Performance & Efficiency

Transit Custom is powered by a range of all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engines. Each offers more power and torque over its predecessor. Remarkably, they’re more fuel efficient and have lower emissions, already complying with stringent new Euro Stage 6 emissions legislation. More power and capability. Yet cleaner and more economical to run: the new Transit Custom makes sound business sense.

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.

All-new Ford EcoBlue TDCi engines

Engineered to meet strict Euro6 emissions standards, the Transit Custom’s all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engines combine outstanding performance and power with lower fuel consumption and emissions, from as low as 46.3 mpg (6.1 L/100km) and 157g/km CO2 with optional Start/Stop. To lower running costs further, service intervals are now up to 36,000 miles or 2 years. Available in three power outputs of 105 PS/ 360 NM, 130 PS / 385 NM and 170PS / 405 NM, there’s an option to suit your needs, whether you carry light loads, operate at full payload, or need to tow.

Greater performance. Reduced emissions

Transit Custom’s all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi diesel engines comply with the stringent Euro6 emissions standard, which specifies a 55% reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions versus the Euro5 emissions standard.

Ford EcoBlue
AdBlue®

An additive that removes pollution

A selective catalytic reduction system uses AdBlue®, a urea/water-based fluid to convert NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle’s exhaust. To operate correctly, the AdBlue® tank of your Ford EcoBlue diesel engine must be filled with AdBlue® fluid. System warnings illuminate when fluid level becomes too low.

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).

Transit Custom Smart regenerative charging

Re-charge your battery more efficiently

Unlike traditional systems, Smart Regenerative Charging only charges the battery when it needs it and, whenever possible, avoids doing so when you’re pressing the accelerator. This can help save even more fuel and further reduce emissions.

Acceleration Control helps you drive more economically

This innovative option controls the rate of acceleration according to whether your vehicle is un-laden or part-laden. As a result, you can expect to lower your fuel consumption by up to 15%, depending on your driving style. The technology can also help reduce the amount of wear and tear on the engine, brakes and tyres, along with other components.

Transit Custom Shift indicator for fuel-efficient gear changes

More fuel-efficient gear changes

A Shift Indicator light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It’s a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
