The New Transit is packed with ingenious features designed to help you work smarter and more efficiently. There’s 15.1 cubic metres of load space for all your cargo. And with a Power Side Load door and a 270-degree lockable rear door, accessing the load space has never been easier.

Extra Strength with 5-Tonne

The new 5-Tonne GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) variant brings the greatest payload capacity ever to the Transit Van, letting you efficiently carry a payload of 2,457 kg.

This extra strength makes the 5-Tonne an ideal candidate for heavy conversions. The Jumbo Van’s larger wheelbase and body configuration (L4 H3) ensures you have the space, as well as the strength, to carry or convert. Delivering the ultimate versatility for whatever you need.

Tougher than ever. This new, ultra-strong Transit is ready to work.Tooltip

Exceptional Load space and access

The New Transit provides impressive load space in all three dimensions: load length, width (from wheel arch to wheel arch) and usable interior height. With 15.1 cubic metres of load space, you can fit cargo over 3 metres long. And with a carrying capacity of up to 2.1 tonnes, you’ll never be short of space or ability to transport almost anything. Wide side load doors, optimised opening height and a rear access step all ensure effortless access to your cargo too.

Improved visibility

Mounted on the rear of the roof is a powerful, new LED Downlighter. This enables you to continue working long after the sun has gone down. And the smart system will automatically turn the light off if the battery gets low, making sure you can get home at the end of a long day.

A hands-free side load door for effortless opening and closing

This ingenious system helps to make loading the New Transit more efficient. Simply pull the door handle or press a button on the key fob, and it will automatically open or close. You can also operate the side load door by pressing a button on the dashboard.

Need to tow an additional load?

If your work requires a tow bar, you can specify one as a factory-fitted option. And if you need a tow bar after you’ve bought your vehicle, it’s easy to order one as an accessory and have it fitted professionally by your Ford Dealer, in both instances, the Trailer Sway Assist feature will be activated.

And with the new 5-Tonne Transit, if you need to tow a trailer the Transit Van has a 7-Tonne GTM (Gross Train Mass) capability (6100 GTM with automatic transmission) making it more than capable and tougher than ever.

A brighter-lit cargo area for easier loading

Load space lamps are fitted as standard. You can also specify the option of ultra-bright LED lighting if required.

Lock open your doors at 270 degrees

To make loading and unloading easier than ever, the rear doors can be locked open at 270 degrees. High visibility decals on the doors’ inner edges reflect light, warning other road users of the vehicles presence. And even closing the doors is now easier because improved air extraction vents relieve air pressure build-up in the cargo area.

Tie-down points to keep your cargo secure

Side-wall mounted tie-down points help keep the load floor clear and are both DIN and ISO compliant.

Sockets, inputs and ports: all close to hand

The New Transit comes with a range of power outlets to help make sure all your devices are charged and ready to go when you are. There are multiple 12V power sockets and conveniently placed USB ports. And you can even have a 240V socket fitted, supplying 150 Watts of power.

Easy to step-up and into your van

A wide, high-grip step is integrated into the rear bumper making it easier to step into the cargo area and more convenient when loading by-hand.

Useful stowage everywhere

The new Transit is full of handy stowage spaces. For example, there’s easy access stowage in the instrument panel. A concealed, lockable glove-box is big enough to hold A4 hanging files, and there’s also convenient under-seat stowage for valuables. Even the vehicle’s doors are designed to maximise space with large pockets that can accommodate an A4 clipboard and a 2-litre drink bottle.
