Next Year, 2013, sees the launch of the new Ford Transit, already making it’s first appearance at the Hanover IAA Commercial Vehicle Show this September.
Ford have not only committed to a complete redesign of it’s entire commercial vehicle group but to have the new line-up of vehicles in place by the end of 2013.
The Transit, being an icon in the automotive world for many years, will also go through Ford’s global product strategy and see new features added such as Ford’s SYNC voice activated in-car connectivity system with emergency assistance. Other features include a rear-view camera and adaptive cruise control.
The heavier two-tonne Transit will be replaced with the new model Transit, and both this and the smaller Transit Connect model will be sold all over the world. Powered by a 2.2litre Duratorque diesel engine, the Transit will have three power outputs of 99, 123 and 153 bhp. It will provide very competitive levels of versatility and durability, in keeping with it’s excellent record and reputation over the past 50 years. The Transit Connect will also offer excellent fuel economy and emissions and will be offered with both petrol and diesel engines in Europe.
The Transit will be available in a variety of different body styles including Van, Combi, Bus and Chassis Cab and also different lengths and heights.
We look forward to seeing the new-look Transit next year!
