Transit Custom - Load-through hatch in bulkhead

Unique, load-through storage area

The Transit Custom has a unique feature designed to extend its load space. A full height, full width bulkhead divides the load area from the passenger cabin and this bulkhead has a flip-up panel at floor level. This means you can load items up to 3m long through the rear doors and into an extended storage area under the van’s dual passenger seats, even in the short wheelbase version. This smart feature enables you to keep valuable materials inside your vehicle, rather than on display on the roof.

Integrated roof rack improves convenience, economy and noise

A unique, innovative roof rack simply folds flat when not in use. As well as saving you the hassle of bolting on and taking off a conventional rack, it also helps save fuel because of reduced drag and gives you a quieter ride with less wind noise.

Different roof heights

Different roof heights

The L1 H1 version provides a cavernous 6.0 cubic metres of loadspace with a bulkhead fitted and the L2 H1 offers 6.8 cubic metres. Both models are also available as a H2 (high-roof) version, increasing the distance from loadfloor to roof to an impressive 1.76m and creating a maximum load volume of 8.3 cubic metres on the largest L2 H2 model.

A protected load area that’s easy to keep clean

A durable load floor liner which not only protects the floor of your van but also helps reduce noise when you're driving.  The liner helps you keep your van clean as its easy to brush or wash.

Load space and access

The Transit Custom’s loadspace is excellent in all three dimensions: load length, width (from wheel arch to wheel arch) and usable interior height. As a result, it can easily carry standard 8’ x 4’ boards flat on the floor, three euro pallets and, thanks to its unique load-through storage area, items up to 3.4m long (L2). Overall, the van provides a cavernous six cubic metres of loadspace with a bulkhead fitted – and that’s just the short wheelbase (L1) version. The long wheelbase (L2) offers 6.8 cubic metres. Transit Custom has the widest side load door opening of any vehicle of its type, the sliding doors also have a new checking mechanism which holds them securely open for loading.

Long service intervals for less time off the road

The advanced all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0-litre TDCi engines are durable and reliable, with longer service intervals of up to 36,000 miles, or two years, whichever occurs first. Along with this, components subject to normal wear and tear have also been designed to last longer without maintenance. It all helps ensure your Transit Custom won’t let you down.

Introducing Ford Transit Centres
Transit Custom Optimised body structure

Maximum protection from a super-strong bodyshell

The body of the vehicle contains ultra-high-strength boron steel. Boron and other high or ultra-high-strength steels make up more than 40% of the bodyshell, including parts of the passenger safety cell. This makes it extremely light and crash-resistant. The design of the bodyshell has also been optimised, using over 4,500 computer simulations and 30 full-vehicle crash tests.

Full steel bulkhead keeps thieves out

A full-height, full-width steel bulkhead acts as a safety feature, protecting you from being hit by your cargo or tools, in the event of an accident.
