Ford today announced the start of production for its new Transit Custom and Turneo Custom at the Kocaeli Ford Otosan plant in Turkey. The vehicle are being brought to life in Turkey, but the engines for them, are supplied by Ford Dagenham, UK. The carmaker sees the new models as the first step in its plan to completely overhaul its commercial vehicle range by the end of next year.
The fresh Transit Custom is slotted between the compact Transit Connect and the large Transit van, with customers also being able to choose the eight- or nine-sear people carrier, the Tourneo Custom. The vehicles’ engine range includes three power levels for Ford’s 2.2-liter, four-cylinder Duratoq diesel unit: 100, 125 and 155 hp.

The Transit Custom is a completely new kind of one-tonne vehicle from Ford,” said Stephen Odell, chairman and CEO, Ford of Europe. “This is a stylish, modern van that customers will be proud to have on their driveway, with the hard-working attitude that they expect from a Transit.”
