Ford has confirmed its new Transit vans will make their Australian debut early in 2014, arriving with car-like 'Custom' and capacious 'Cargo' variants to choose from.

The American carmaker says both models have been designed to both stylish and safe, packing a range of new technologies and load-carrying features to appeal to a broader range of buyers.

The smaller Custom model arrives as "a new kind of Transit", promising a car-like interior and driving experience, but with class-competitive capacity and power.

The Custom's features include an integrated roof-rack system and a load-through hatch in the bulkhead for extra long loads.

The cabin boasts new stowage options for bottles, phones and documents, and Ford's SYNC infotainment system is also on-board.

With the bigger Cargo, Ford says buyers will get a choice of roof heights, single and double-cab options, and the availability of a 12-seater bus model.

Full Australian specifications for the Transit Cargo are still to be confirmed, but European buyers current have a choice of front, rear, or all-wheel drivetrains - all tied to the latest version of Ford’s 2.2 litre Duratorq turbodiesel engine.

In Europe, the smaller Connect is available with short and long-wheelbase options, and a number of small diesel engines.

Ford Australia says it will reveal the full specifications and features of the Transit Custom and Transit Cargo models closer to launch.
