The UK’s best-selling van, The Ford Transit Custom was a huge success from the outset. It’s recognition partly comes from the name itself, ‘Transit’ – being that the UK has adopted the phrase to address most vans of the same magnitude.


What SM UK love about this particular van, is its possibility… The Ford Custom has virtually no limits to what it can be converted into.


Its motility and flexibility offers the buyer oodles of opportunities and ideas, with SM UK ideally placed to bring any mobile business idea into fruition, offering extended services, including racking to keep your belongings organised and safe. So, whether it’s the high spec electrician or a dog grooming service we are here to help with your design, ensuring your van is tailor-made for your next adventure.


The ‘Custom’ offers a choice of four versions of Ford’s 2.0L diesel engine. There’s the all-powerful 182bhp (great if you want masses of pulling power), as well as the 104bhp, 128bhp and 167bhp models.


Matched with a choice of four trim levels – Base, Trend, Limited and Sport – with the option of added features. For a more lifestyle variant the Active and Trail are right up there with bold and the brash.


All Transits come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but there is also the option of a six-speed ‘SelectShift’ automatic that you can have with the two higher-powered engines.

Despite being a mammoth success, the Transit Custom still, of course has plenty of competition, making its presence all the more imposing. The VW Transporter is a formidable alternative, while the Citroën Dispatch, Peugeot Expert, Renault Trafic and Vauxhall Vivaro can all profess to doing the same job.
