Ford Transit Connect

The Ford Transit Custom has consistently been the UK’s best-selling van for both owner-drivers and commercial vehicles. Due to its popularity, the name of the vehicle has become a broad-stroke term for vehicles of that size.

The Transit Custom is available in four different versions of the 2.0-litre engine, as well as a fully electric E-Transit Custom model. There are four trim levels available toom Leader, Base, Trend, Limited and Sport, combined with an abundance of optional extras and upgrades. Each vehicle is available in both short and long-body versions, with both standard and high-roof options. The numerous customisation options make the Ford Transit Custom a versatile vehicle for all its users.

Checking your VIN Plate...

Please remember to check your vehicle's towing capacity shown on the VIN plate. If your car doesn't have a towing capacity, we cannot legally fit a Towbar to your vehicle. We recommend you do this before booking, as some vehicles vary throughout make and model (even though we may show some available).

More about the Ford Transit Connect

As standard, all Transits come with a six-speed manual gearbox however there is an option of a ‘Select Shift’ automatic version too if you’d rather avoid the manual gear change. All the Custom variants meet the latest Euro-6d final emissions regulations too, along with offering a mild hybrid version of the mid-range unit, which can help you save fuel by providing the engine with electrical assistance.

The Ford Transit Custom strikes a brilliant balance between comfort, convenience, and control. The dashboard in the Transit Custom features an 8” touchscreen infotainment system as standard, adding premium car equipment into a working vehicle. It benefits from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so that you can utilise your smartphone applications via the screen.

The steering which adjusts for both rake and reaches, and the driver’s seat is also highly adjustable to ensure comfort for drivers of all shapes and sizes. The cockpit is brimming with plenty of storage compartments along the top of the dash as well as deep door bins for smaller items. The large windscreen offers a clear view of the road ahead, and parking sensors and a rear-view camera on specific models assist with those tricky manoeuvres.

The Transit Custom has one of the largest cubic volumes of any medium-sized van. The short-wheelbase standard roof model has a capacity of 6 cubic metres, whilst the long-wheelbase high roof has a larger capacity of 8.3 cubic metres. A single side-loading door with an opening of just over a metre is standard on all vans, and there is an option to add a second side door on the driver’s side for even better accessibility.

What's my Towing Capacity?

The towing capacity for the Ford Transit varies depending on the model, but some models can tow a hefty 2800kg. The specific towing limit for your vehicle can be found on the VIN plate, and this must be referred to before booking your towbar installation.

Which Towbar is best for my Ford Transit Connect?

There are two towbar options for the Ford Transit Custom. One of which is the fixed flange towbar. This towbar benefits from a bolt-on section which can be utilised whilst the actual ball of the towbar remains free. The ball of the towbar can be replaced with an Alko tow ball to suit an Alko stabiliser.

The alternative option is a detachable swan neck towbar, which can be removed from the housing when the towbar is not in use to restore the vehicle to its original aesthetic. The tow ball is Alko compatible so is ready to use with an Alko stabiliser without any additions.

Will it need a bumper cut?

There is no bumper cut required to fit any towbar option onto the Ford Transit Custom if the bumper is standard. If you have had modifications to your vehicle or a different bumper added, then we would recommend referring to the fitting instructions before booking your installation. Our helpful customer service team will be able to advise should you require any assistance.
