Ford Light Commercial Vehicles (Vans & Pick Ups)
Ford have established themselves as one of the most well known brands in the UK for Light Commercial Vehicles. Their self-proclaimed ‘backbone of Britain’ Transit has been in existence for decades and will continue long into the future.
Fords smart and versatile Fiesta Van represents one of only a small selection of small car0derived vans on the market. Ideally suited for Highways Maintenance, Surveying and small delivery jobs, the Fiesta Van certainly has its uses.
Fords offering to the Pick-Up market is their incredibly popular Ford Ranger. With demand out-stripping supply in the 1st year the new Ranger seems to be a hit.
Fords Transit Courier is neatly targeted to compete strongly with the more well established competitor models which offer 1 low packed pallet payloads for light courier and delivery work. With the more dynamic car like looks and feel, the Courier is a popular alternative.
A more ‘box-van’ like alternative to the Courier is the Transit Connect. With a broader wheelbase choice and options including a Double-Cab-In-Van (DCIV) this is a hardier choice with better carrying and payload capacity.
Targeted at the more ‘style-conscious’ van user such as Sole Traders and smaller contractors, the Transit Custom lives up to its name as it offers a far greater range of options in both terms of colour, specification, wheelbase and chassis style. You can read our review on the Transit Custom here.
The latest evolution of the Ford Transit follows the rest of its peers with a less boxy front end and the latest technology to wow those looking for a van. With a wide range of wheelbase, height and chassis options the ‘All New Transit’ claims to be an overall improvement over its predecessor. You can read our review here.
