New high-roof Ford Transit Custom on sale

Ford is offering a new high-roof version of the Transit Custom van, which offers 20% greater load volume than the equivalent low-roof model at an additional cost of £500.

It is available to order in the UK now for delivery later this year.

This latest version of the 2013 International Van of the Year is designed with a wide range of customers in mind, featuring 370mm greater load height than the low-roof model to increase the distance from floor to roof to 1.78m, and offering a maximum load volume of up to 8.3 cubic metres (with a full bulkhead fitted).

"This addition to the Transit Custom line-up brings all the style, economy and durability of the low-roof vehicle, and adds valuable extra cargo volume," said David Gregory, Transit Custom chief programme engineer, Ford of Europe.

"We also made sure that the high-roof variant keeps all of those smart load space features that customers asked for when we designed the new model."

Load space features include:
• Load-through hatch in bulkhead enabling loads up to 3.0m in length, such as pipes or ladders, to be safely carried inside the vehicle (up to 3.4m in long wheelbase model)
• Repositioned DIN and ISO compliant tie-down hooks located on the body sides to increase usable load area and allow complete cleaning of the floor
• Tailored, one-piece, easy-to-clean load floor liner offering enhanced durability and simple cleaning
• Ultra-bright LED loadspace lighting with four high-performance LED units

The high-roof Transit Custom has CO2 emissions from 178g/km delivered by the improved UK-built 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel with optional Auto-Start-Stop.
