Two more variants will be added to Ford’s van lineup as part of the brand’s MY24.5 update to take on the likes of the Peugeot Expert
The Transit Custom Trend will be joined by the Sport and Sport Double Cab variants, which have been priced at $59,990 and $62,990 respectively before on-road costs.
We’ve already reported on the 2024 Trend short-wheel base and long-wheel base variants, but pricing for the Trend has already increased by $600 for the SWB and $600 for the long wheel base as part of this 2024.5 update.
Ford has confirmed that the new Sport additions to the Transit Custom range are due in Australia late in the third quarter of 2024.
A fully electric version – called the E-Transit Custom – is also due sometime in 2024, but an exact timeframe has not yet been confirmed.
Just like the Trend variant, the powertrain used for the Transit Custom Sport variants is a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that produces 125kW and 390Nm and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission powering the front wheels.
Let’s do a dive into what you’ll get with these new Transit Custom variants in Australia this year.
