Ford Transit Custom Review
As the Limited part refers to the trim specification and is outlined in the second section below, it is first necessary to review the Ford Transit Custom, and then move on to the Limited package specifications in part 2.
Design and Styling
The Transit Custom is a van that's been designed with both function and style in mind. The exterior is sleek and modern, while the interior is spacious and comfortable. Whether you're using it for work or for play, the Transit Custom is a great choice.
Interior and Space
The Transit Custom comes with a spacious and comfortable interior that can accommodate up to five adults. There is plenty of head- and legroom for all passengers, and the seats are supportive and comfortable on long journeys. The cabin is also very well insulated from exterior noise, making for a relaxed and peaceful journey. There is a generous amount of storage space inside the Transit Custom, both in the form of overhead compartments and under-seat storage. There are even LOAD FLOOR TIE-DOWNS which are sidewall mounted, which makes securing cargo, not only safe but super easy to access. All of these features make it easy to keep the cabin tidy and organised, even when carrying a lot of passengers and luggage.
Engine and roof specs
The Transit Custom is available with a variety of different engine choices (see below for the ones you can get with the limited spec), all of which offer plenty of power and torque for hauling heavy loads. The most powerful engine in the range is the 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel, which produces a whopping 340 Nm of torque. This is more than enough power for towing trailers or carrying heavy loads, and it makes light work of hilly terrain. The Transit Custom is also available with a choice of two different roof heights, meaning that it can be tailor-made to suit your specific needs. Whether you need extra headroom for tall passengers or more space for cargo, the Transit Custom has you covered.
Performance and Driving Experience
The Transit Custom is a capable workhorse that doesn't mind getting its hands dirty. It's comfortable enough for long days on the job, but also agile and manoeuvrable enough to make light work of city driving. The engine options are all powerful and efficient, so you can get the job done without breaking a sweat.
The Transit Custom also offers a surprisingly tight turning circle, which makes manoeuvring it much easier than many other vehicles its size. Then there is the ACTIVE PARK ASSIST which is also designed to make parking a breeze. Especially if you are using the van for deliveries in built-up areas. The great thing about ACTIVE PARK ASSIST is that it can help you not only find the best spaces to suit your van, but also guide you in. That means you only have to worry about the breaks and gears, making parking your van so much easier and less stressful. All in all, the Transit Custom is a great option for those who need a reliable and hardworking van.
Safety and Security
The Transit Custom is a safe and secure van that will help you get the job done without any worries. The van comes with a variety of safety features, including front and side airbags, ABS brakes, and traction control.
Then there is the PRE-COLLISION ASSIST function which monitors the road ahead, as well as how close your vehicle is to other road users. This system is designed to alert you to any potential collisions up to 50 mph, and can even trigger the breaks.
The Transit Custom also has a strong build quality that makes it resistant to break-ins and theft. So you can rest easy knowing that your van is safe and secure.
