Ford Transit Custom 2017
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: After our first drive in June we concluded the latest Transit Custom with EcoBlue engine and six-speed automatic had all the credentials needed to be a serious player in the 2.5-3.5 tonne van segment.

The 2017 Ford Transit Custom carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2800 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.
The Ford Transit Custom is also known as the Ford Tourneo Custom and the Ford New Transit (China) in markets outside Australia.
