THE new 2-tonne Ford Transit was unveiled at IAA Commercial Vehicle show in Hannover, Germany (September 19-27, 2018).

Among the key features of the new 2-tonne Transit is increased load-carrying capability and upgraded powertrains for improved operating efficiency.


  • New 2-tonne Ford Transit improved fuel efficiency by up to 7 per cent and advanced new connectivity features.
  • Segment-first diesel mild hybrid powertrain option further improves fuel efficiency by up to 8 per cent in stop-start urban situations.
  • New powertrain includes upgraded 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel with more powerful 185 PS variant, plus efficient new 10-speed automatic transmission for rear-wheel drive models.
  • On-sale from mid-2019, new Transit features smart new front-end design, all-new interior with enhanced stowage, and new driver assistance tech to make working days less stressful.

There’s also a segment first diesel with mild hybridisation (MHEV) said to deliver an additional fuel efficiency improvement of around 3 per cent, compared with the standard diesel model, with up to 8 per cent in stop-start urban applications.

The new Transit is also tech-laden. There’s FordPass Connect on-board modem technology, helping fleet professionals to improve vehicle utilisation and optimise running costs.

A new Power Side Load Door also provides ease of operation when loading or unloading. The new high-mounted down-lighter provides illumination of the cargo area when working at night behind the rear cargo doors.

The new 2-tonne Ford Transit will go on sale in Europe from mid-2019.
