Ford’s response to Volkswagen Transporter and Renault Traffic is ready to take center stage at the upcoming 2012 Commercial Vehicle Show, as the company has officially announced the debut of its new LCV prior to sales launch later in 2012 in Europe.
The new Ford Transit Custom is based on the Ford Tourneo Custom Concept and except for some minor exterior modifications it bares the same look as its donor.
The company declared that the Ford Transit Custom will be available with a full range of van, combi, and double-cab-in-van models and won’t be sold in North America.
Jesus Alonso, director CV Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe said, “The launch of this new range marks the start of a far-reaching transformation of Ford’s global commercial vehicle range. With more new models set to be revealed in the coming months, 2012 is destined to be a very exciting year for our commercial vehicle business.”
