Ford Adds More Appeal To Transit With Custom Color And Sport Editions

To most, vans are nothing more than ultra-practical vehicles perfect for moving things around and typically painted white. But for prospective van owners that want a little extra, Ford has the answer with the launch of the Transit Custom Color Edition and Transport Custom Sport.

Available in Europe, there are four different color schemes available for the Custom Color Edition, each designed to give the Ford Transit a special look and consisting of Race Red, Deep Impact Blue, Frozen White with Jet Black contrasts and Shadow Black with Race Red contrasts. Underpinning all is the short-wheelbase, 290 Trend series Transit powered by Ford’s 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine with 170 PS (167 hp).

Alongside the Transits with special paint schemes, Ford has extended the Custom Sport series to now offer six variants.

The range-topping model is fitted with a bold body kit complete with a color-coded exterior that includes body-color bumpers, door handles and wing mirrors. Additionally, 17-inch wheels with a silver and black design come standard but 18-inch alloys are also available as are contrasting hood stripes.

Inside, the Transit Custom Sport series benefits from leather seat bolsters and the Ford SYNC connectivity package. Other modifications include a rear anti-roll bar, a thicker front anti-roll bar and firmer settings on the rear dampers for the standard van model. Double-cab-in-van models make use of different spring and damper settings.

As with the Custom Color Edition, the Custom Sport series includes the same 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel mated as standard to a 6-speed manual but also available with a 6-speed automatic.
