THE NEW FORD TRANSIT CUSTOM SPORT DIESEL VAN GETS 182BHP
Isn't it annoying when you load up your van with all your gear, possibly even your bikes, hitch your racing car to the back and then proceed at a snail's pace to track day? Well, Ford has introduced a 182bhp Custom Sport diesel van to help you get there faster.
That's right, the Ford Transit Custom Sport van receives their powerful 2.0-litre four-cylinder EcoBlue diesel available in manual or automatic. Not happy with the power output though, they reworked the low-inertia turbocharger and updated the high-pressure fuel injection system, resulting in 185bhp and 415Nm of torque, making this van the range-topper of the Transit series.
It covers all of the bases too, with both short and long wheelbase offerings, as a panel van, kombi van or double-cab-in-van body style. There's definitely one to suit your needs.
In true Ford fashion, the Transit Custom Sport receives a new body kit, including chunky front and rear bumpers, styled side-sills, flared wheel arches and body-coloured wing mirrors. Wheels on offer are either 17- or 18-inch alloys and, oh yes, a pair of contrasting go-faster stripes running from front to back.
The interior receives part-leather trimmings and an eight-inch infotainment screen with a roaming WiFi hotspot. Active park assist, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and a blind spot monitoring system that supports 10 metre long trailers are all part of the options list.
So, there you have it. Instead of building your own custom van for race day, just pop past a Ford dealership and take a look at one of these bad boys.
