Ford Transit Custom 2018 pricing and specs confirmed

Powering the van is Ford's 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbo-diesel engine, paired with either a six-speed auto or manual transmission.

Ford Australia has revealed pricing for its new Ford Transit Custom van range, checking in at $40,990 plus on-road costs for the short-wheelbase 300S and $42,990 for the full-length 340L.

Opting for a six-speed automatic transmission commands a $2800 premium, pushing the Transit Custom 300S and 350L to $42,990 and $45,790 respectively.

All this translates to a slight price rise of $1300 for the manual and $1350 for the automatic, compared to the previous model.

Motivating the Transit Custom is a 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbo-diesel engine, delivering 96kW/385Nm.

As previously reported, the updated model ushers in subtle styling changes, with the van now donning Ford's new hexagonal-shaped front grille, a sharper headlight design and an updated lower bumper with square foglights.

Inside, a modernised interior swaps out the old multimedia system for an 8.0-inch 'Sync3' floating touchscreen and adds new instrumentation lifted from the Ford Fiesta light car.

Extra storage is offered with redesigned door pockets, and new fold-out cup holders have been added beneath the gear shifter.

Ford will offer new options including 16-inch alloy wheels ($1000), dual side load doors with rear side windows ($1700), and a high roof option ($1500).

A ‘Technology Pack’ option will also be available for $1600 which includes auto emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, auto high beams, auto rain-sensing wipers, lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

While the overall length and wheelbase is unchanged, the new 300S is wider, lower and heavier than its predecessor.

The new model has been widened from 1986mm to 2080mm, while the SWB manual version is lowered from 2007mm to 1964mm, and has gained considerable weight from 1852kg to 1994kg.

In turn, the dimensional changes have affected the gross vehicle mass and payload, from 2940kg to 3000kg and 1088kg to 1006kg respectively.

The manual long-wheelbase 340L has undergone similar changes, widened from 1986mm to 2080mm, lowered from 2022mm to 1975mm and now weighing in at 2099kg, up 121kg.

Motivating the Transit Custom is a 2.0-litre EcoBlue turbo-diesel engine, delivering 96kW/385Nm, matched up to either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission, driving the front wheels exclusively.

Carryover options include 'prestige paint' ($600), ‘SVO paint’ ($1250), rear cargo door liftgate ($550), rear side windows ($350) and dual side load doors with no windows ($1000).
