Ford has increased the appeal of its Transit commercial vehicle range, with the arrival of the all-new ‘VO’ 2015 model available in six variants.

Joining the smaller Ford Transit Custom which arrived earlier this year will be a fleet of van and cab-chassis variants larger than the previous model, offering a new interior and new standard features.

The new model’s load area is bigger in every way; longer, wider and higher than the outgoing model and with a greater load-carrying capacity.

Overall lengths vary from 3750mm to 3954mm, while payloads range from 1122kg to 2500kg and the maximum gross vehicle mass available remains at 4490kg.

The Transit and Transit Custom range differ in that the Transit badge covers the larger two-tonne, rear-wheel-drive range, while the Custom line-up consists of a pair of one-tonne vans with front-wheel-drive.

The new range kicks off with the Transit 350L and ‘jumbo’ 350E long-wheel-base vans with single rear wheels, then moves up to the 470E available in jumbo van or single-cab chassis - both with dual rear wheels.

A seven-seat 470E double-cab chassis with dual rear wheels will join the range later this month, while the 410E 12-seat bus will complete the new range when it arrives in Australia next year.

All Transits will be powered by the same 2.2 litre ‘Duratorq’ turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine producing 114kW/385Nm and including stop/start technology, matched with a six-speed manual transmission.

Ford says the Transit’s all-new interior offers more head and shoulder room than the outgoing model, along with improved visibility and a more comfortable driving position.

Standard features include a full-width overhead shelf, DAB digital radio, hidden compartment under the dual passenger seat and two 12-volt sockets.

On the safety front, the Transit gets driver, passenger, seat-side and side curtain airbags, stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, traction control and roll-over mitigation.

There’s also load adaptive, torque vectoring and trailer sway control, while Ford’s Emergency Assistance system is now standard on all models.

The 2015 Ford Transit range is on sale now (barring exclusions mentioned earlier) with prices starting from $47,680 plus on-roads, including a five-year, 200,000km warranty.
