Ford Unveils The Courier, Compact Transit
Get the New Ford Transit from Westwood Motor Group
Ford new small Transit – the Courier – made its global debut at the CV Show last week when the company presented its complete line-up of four next-generation Transites for the first time.
The Courier is the smallest member of the new Transit range, and joins the Connect, Custom and Transit in the most comprehensive ever line-up of Transit vehicles.
“Ford has now completely transformed its commercial vehicle line-up, with four all-new, class-leading Transits for European customers,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president, product development, Ford of Europe. “With the all-new Transit range, we expect sales to grow to 400,000 units per year by 2016, well over 50 per cent more than we sell today.”
The Transit Courier goes on sale next spring 2014, when all four new Transit models will be available in European showrooms. The line-up will also include the spacious new high-roof version of the Transit Custom that is also revealed for the first time the CV show.
The Courier marks a significant development for the Transit range, expanding the nameplate into the compact van segment for the first time.
Based on Ford’s global B-segment platform, the Transit Courier delivers load volume of 2.3m3 (SAE) with standard full bulkhead within an overall length of 4.16m.
Keep an eye out for the Ford Courier Compact Transit which will be available for sale and hire at Westwood Vans Wigan when it’s launched
