Turkish Ford Transit Custom Starts Now

Production of the new Ford Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom is now underway at the Kocaeli plant in Turkey.
There is still a British element to the van – it was engineered and designed at Ford’s Dunton Technical Centre and the engines are supplied by Ford Dagenham.
The arrival of the Transit Custom van and Tourneo Custom people mover marks the first step in a complete transformation of Ford’s global commercial vehicle range by the end of 2013.
The new Transit Custom sits between the smaller Transit Connect and the larger Transit van in Ford’s commercial vehicle line-up; and is also offered as an eight- or nine-seat people-mover, the Tourneo Custom.
Both models are powered by 100PS, 125PS or 155PS versions of Ford’s latest 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel engine, which is produced at Ford Dagenham. They offer impressive fuel consumption of 43.5mpg for the Tourneo Custom and 42.8mpg for the Transit Custom.
The Ford Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom will go on sale later this year.
