Ford has added a selection of smart features as standard in its Transit lineup, with arrivals expected in late 2024.

 Ford Transit has been upgraded with infotainment and Driver Assist Technology, adding to its practicality and cargo-carrying smarts.

The upgrades for the world’s best-selling cargo van will be available for all MY2024.75 models and are designed to help businesses do more with their vehicles and optimise their operations.

The headline change is an increase to the maximum braked towing capacity and Gross Combined Mass (GCM) for all load-hauling models (bar E-Transit), along with minor increases to payload figures.

The 350L FWD Transit now has a maximum braked towing capacity of 2750kg, and GCM of 6000kg, an increase of 950kg and 1750kg respectively. Meanwhile, 350L RWD models now boast 3500kg of maximum braked towing capacity, and a 7000kg GCM, increases of 750kg and 900kg compared to the outgoing models.

Dual-wheel 430E Transits in both van and cab-chassis bodies now also have 3500kg towing1 and 7000kg GCM, up 1100kg and 900kg on the current models.

Inside the cabin drivers will now be able to appreciate a new 8-inch semi-digital cluster, providing a modern and sleek cockpit design that allows for quick access to important vehicle data. Additionally, previously exclusive to the E-Transit, all single rear-wheel variants now come equipped with an electronic park brake, freeing up cabin space which saves time for delivery drivers who frequently enter and exit their vehicles.

All Transit variants also gain a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, with the standard feature providing peace of mind while on the road. All Van and Bus models now have a 360 Degree Camera system to make parking and manoeuvring in tight spaces easier than ever. Cab chassis versions of the updated Transit now feature front fog lamps and front parking sensors, adding to the already standard rear parking camera.

The updated Transit is also fitted with the latest 5G Embedded Modem, compatible with FordPass2, giving customers faster connectivity in 5G connected areas.

A new 8F57 eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the six-speed auto as standard for the front-drive 350L LWB Transit van, offering a smoother driving experience and enhanced efficiency. This transmission also moves from a traditional gear lever in favour of a more modern rotary gear selector, which adds to the cabin’s sense of space and ease of use.
