Ford Transit Custom 2024: Sport and Sport Double Cab variants added to lineup


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  

Ford Australia has announced two more variants for its Transit Custom van range for 2024, joining the Trend short- and long-wheel base vans in the Blue Oval’s commercial space. 

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. 

The 2024 Ford Transit Custom Sport

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. 

The Transit Custom competes directly with other vans in the commercial space such as the Peugeot Expert and the LDV V80 in Australia.
