Vans might not be renowned for their stylish looks, but that’s all about to change with the latest Ford Transit Custom Trend Colour Edition and Sport Series.
The Trend Colour Edition uses four vibrant colour schemes that would put the A-Team to shame, with options for a contrasting roof, mirrors, side decals and skid plates.
Choose from Shadow Black with Race Red contrasts, or Deep Impact Blue, Race Red and Frozen White with Jet Black contrasts – kitted out with 17” dark alloys.
Or if that’s not eye catching enough, you could go for the muscular Transit/Tourneo Sport model. Due to a 52% rise in sales in 2016, the Sport is now available in six body styles with contrasting signature twin bonnet stripes. As well as giving them a super stylish design, Ford has made sure to include the familiar specs that make the Transit such an enduring workhorse. All Sport models are based on the 290 series Transit Custom, renowned for its agile, strong handling and comfortable ride. Meanwhile, both the Trend Colour Edition and Sport are powered by Ford’s new 2.0tdci 170ps EcoBlue engine, with a 6-speed manual gearbox on the Trend Colour Edition, and the choice of either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission on the Sport. Both models will go out for delivery from March onwards, and the Trend Colour Edition will be available in in limited numbers, making this a vehicle guaranteed to turn heads.
The only question remains - does this mean the end of White Van Man?
