Good hygiene is part of life - on a personal & professional level - but for cleaning companies, hygiene is big business. Vanarama Van Expert Tom Roberts takes a look at...
The new Ford Transit is an icon of the van and light commercial vehicle sector, and most affordable when driven on a van leasing deal. The Ford Transit’s large dimensions and specs are perfect for tradespeople looking to move huge amounts of materials; its interior is also comfortable and practical.
Transit specifications and dimensions
The Ford Transit van’s specifications (not counting optional extras) are plentiful meaning there’s a perfect combination of specs available for every van driver.
- 2.2-litre turbo diesel engines in a range of outputs
- Different wheelbase lengths (MWB, SWB, LWB, etc)
- Different roof heights (H1, H2, etc)
- Front/rear/all-wheel drive versions
The latest versions of the Ford Transit can carry a top cargo weight of 2.3 tonnes, with the largest variant featuring a huge loading bay 15.1m3 in size (with plenty of lashing points and pallet space).
Transit drive and trim
The latest Ford Transit van is more car-like than ever with Ford confirming the interior and dashboard are taken straight out of its car range – that includes the steering wheel, instrumentation, and the switches.
Most trim levels feature DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, device docks, trailer sway control and hill assist, and the interior is made from tough materials with loads of little cubby holes above and in the dashboard.
Transit fuel economy and emissions
The most economical version of the Ford Transit van is the 123bhp Econetic which offers emissions as low as 177g/km and a manufacturer-stated 44mpg.
Emissions and fuel economy (CO2, MPG, etc) are always worth looking into, but rest assured that the Transit’s Euro 6 engines are going to give you good returns.
Transit van finance
Ford Transit vans benefit from strong residual values (the amount a vehicle will be worth at the end of a lease deal), which means the van finance packages we provide will see van drivers like you benefit from competitive monthly rentals, affordable initial rentals, and hassle-free budgeting for the duration of the agreement.
