Performance and Efficiency

Efficient, agile and fun to drive. The New Transit Courier combines rewarding driving dynamics with impressively low CO2 emissions and outstanding fuel economy. The award-winning 1.0 Ford EcoBoost petrol engine and the refined 1.5 Duratorq TDCi diesel engine are paired with a 6-speed manual transmission to deliver smooth and responsive performance wherever you go.

A 6-speed transmission saves on fuel

New Transit Courier is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, making it more economical and efficient. Once you reach a high enough speed, just slip your van into 6th gear and save on fuel while you’re cruising along. You’ll find the gear changes are smooth and quick too.

More power. More efficiency. More enjoyment

The revolutionary 1.0 litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine gives you all the power you'd expect from a conventional 1.6 litre engine, but achieves better fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. Win, win.

Better aerodynamics for improved economy

When you’re driving slowly, the Active Grille Shutter system keeps the grille vent open to cool the engine. When you pick up speed it can automatically close, improving aerodynamics and helping to save fuel. Over time, this technology can make a big difference.

Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or press the accelerator on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10% (urban cycle).

Make light work of every turn

Unlike larger vans, the New Transit Courier has a tight turning circle of just 10.5 metres which makes U-turns and parking on busy streets quick and easy, even on narrow streets.
