A brief history of the Ford Transit Custom

Though it wears the Ford Transit family badge, which has been on the market since 1965, Ford Transit Custom was only introduced in 2012. 

The arrival of the Transit Custom van has split the traditional Transit van range into two - the Ford Custom targets the medium van market and the full-size Ford Transit focuses on the large van market.
The Custom received a facelift in 2018 which mainly improved the cab, while premium trims known as Transit Custom Trail and Transit Custom Active were added in the middle of 2020. These models offer a range of innovative features that aren't standard on other models. 

Ford Transit Custom Awards

Ford Transit Custom won the 2013 International Van of the Year award. It was also named Best Medium Van by WhatVan? in 2016 as well as HeyCar's Most Popular Medium Van of 2019. In 2021, Euro NCAP awarded the Custom van with a Gold Award for its advanced driver assistance technology. Moreover, Custom won the 2021 Auto Express Van of the Year contest and the Parkers New Car Awards 2022 in the Best Medium Van category.


How many Ford Transit Custom variants are there?

The Transit Custom comes in two heights, two lengths, and both long and short wheelbases. This model is particularly versatile, and you're likely to find a Ford Transit Custom variant that's well-suited to your business's needs. 

Although there are many ways to customise the Ford Transit Custom van, it comes in three bodystyles, thus offering three different approaches to loadspace and access.

  • Transit Custom Van – With a full-height bulkhead (glazed or unglazed), the Transit Custom Van separates the loadspace from the cabin and comes with the option of two or three seats in the cabin. You can choose between single or twin sliding doors and a tailgate or hinged rear doors. 
  • Transit Custom Double Cab-in-Van - In addition to the two or three seats in the front row, the Transit Custom crew van provides an extra three seats behind the front row. Following the second row of seats, a fixed glazed bulkhead separates the loadspace from the cabin. Load space is naturally reduced as a result. 
  • Transit Custom Kombi M1 – Versatility is a standard feature of the Transit Custom Kombi. There are three rows of seats, so it can carry up to 9 people. The seats can be folded or completely removed at any time to allow tools or equipment to be carried instead of passengers.
  • What makes the Ford Transit Custom so special?

  • Ford Transit Custom's fame is not a hoax. This medium Ford van offers a comfortable and easy drive, a high-tech interior, and some really effective safety equipment as well as powerful and economical engines, which is important when you're leasing fleet vans. Custom's payload ratings are impressive, too. Transit Custom van is packed with features designed specifically for commercial use, making it one of Ford's most sought-after van models. These include:

Cargo space

With two wheelbases and two roof heights available, you can choose the most suitable combination for moving tall or long loads. The maximum load volume of the Ford Transit Custom panel van varies from 6m3 for the smallest model to 8.3 cubic meters for the largest Custom van, which can fit three Euro pallets. Transit Custom crew cab sacrifices some volume for the second row of seats so it can carry up to 4.3m3, which easily fits one Euro pallet. The Transit Custom Kombi 9-seater van still manages to offer 2.5 cubic meters of storage space. All that loadspace can be accessed quickly and easily through the pallet-wide sliding side doors, the wide rear doors, and the low-height step-in.

For the largest Ford Transit Custom panel van option, the maximum payload is 1,530kg. 

Cabin interior

Among the standard features of the Transit Custom is an eight-way adjustable driver's seat for maximum comfort. Designed with daily use in mind, the cushioning on all the seats in the cabin has been designed to provide optimum support for those long journeys. There is also an infotainment system,  coat hooks and storage space beneath the passenger seat. Materials within the Ford Transit Customs's cabin are high quality and durable.

Safety features

The Ford Transit Custom van scored the maximum 5 stars in Euro NCAP crash tests conducted in 2012. The Ford Custom van is equipped with standard features such as stability control, which helps the vehicle balance its centre of gravity when carrying heavy loads. Furthermore, the vehicle has crosswind assistance, which is very useful in the UK. Other features include trailer sway control when towing, and an emergency brake assist function that can recognise and respond to people in front of the vehicle. 

Engines & performance

You can choose from a variety of advanced powertrains.

Ford Custom offers a range of high-performance 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines,  which are available in three different power outputs: 105, 130 or 170 brake horsepower (BHP). Your power requirements will depend on the typical weight of the loads you'll be moving.  Ford Transit Custom vans can achieve 46 miles per gallon (MPG) with only one engine available, although it varies slightly depending upon which power output you choose. 

The Transit Custom Hybrid offers a diesel engine but with greater fuel efficiency thanks to its electric assist. Consider leasing the Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid if you would like something even more efficient. With Ford Transit Custom PHEV, you can drive up to 26 miles on pure electricity before the engine switches to a petrol model.


The Transit Custom was designed to be an adaptable van that could handle all kinds of road conditions. This is why the model offers two suspension options. Standard Custom vans can cope with uneven surfaces and potholes, but Ford went the extra mile with its Custom Sport models to ensure an even ride in even the most extreme road conditions.

Choice of trims

Ford spoils with the trim choices on the Ford Transit Custom. Six trim levels are available: Leader, Trend, Trail, Limited, Active and Sport. Even the Transit Custom Trend versions are very well equipped, while the Transit Custom Limited is pretty posh for a van. The Trail and Active models incorporate off-road elements, while the Transit Custom Sport trim offers a more sporty look with its large alloy wheels, body stripes, and sports seats. The Sport model runs on the most powerful engine, too.

If you're looking for something even fancier, consider leasing a Ford Transit Custom MS-RT, which can be customised with factory-approved bodykits. 


What are Ford Transit Custom alternatives?

Despite being the top van leasing deal in the UK, the Ford Transit Custom still faces plenty of competition, making its dominance that much more impressive. While the Mercedes Vito is available as well, the Custom van is a bit more affordable, while offering the same top quality. If you're looking for other alternatives then you should check out our Citroen DispatchPeugeot Expert, Renault Trafic, Vauxhall Vivaro and VolkswagenTransporter leasing deals - all of which are very worthy medium van leases.
