With a clear focus on the commercial space, the new Ford Transit Custom uses an “all-new platform”, independent rear suspension and a re-designed cabin. 

The Ford Transit Custom will compete in the busy commercial van space with other rivals such as the Volkswagen Transporter, the Peugeot Expert and the LDV V80.

An all-electric version of the Transit Custom, called the Ford e-Transit Custom, is also expected in Australia sometime in 2024 as part of Ford Australia’s EV rollout.

The new Ford Transit Custom is powered by a 2.0-litre ‘Ecoblue’ four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that produces 125kW/390Nm. This engine is mated to a eight-speed automatic transmission that powers the front wheels. 

Ford Australia quotes an average fuel consumption figure of 8.0L/100km for this engine. 

Four drive modes are standard for the new Transit Custom, including Normal, Eco, Slippery and Towing.
