Ford says the all-new Ford Transit Courier will offer van operators best-in-class fuel efficiency and load space when the first models are delivered to customers in summer 2014.
Ford’s first-ever small Transit van delivers unsurpassed fuel economy. The 95hp 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi engine achieves 3.7 l/100 km (76.3 mpg) and 97 g/km CO2 emissions, achieving best in class efficiency.
The all-new Transit Courier offers 10% more load volume than its direct competitors with 2.3 m3 behind the bulkhead, as well as longer load length at floor level, and greater access width through the sliding side doors. Ford goes on to say that the compact, versatile van also brings a new level of technology and functionality to the segment with class-leading safety features, in-cab stowage space and connectivity, including Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance.
Aimed at the urban delivery market and small businesses requiring a functional and compact van, the all-new Transit Courier will generate new sales for Ford in the fast-growing European small commercial vehicle segment. This adds to the momentum created by the larger products from the completely redesigned and expanded Ford Transit range.
For the Irish market, Transit Courier starts with the Transit Courier Base 1.5 litre Duratorq diesel 75hp from €13.990.
