Ford Transit Custom Set To Boast Improved Residual Values

Residual value analysts CAP has announced that the Ford Transit Custom will boast greatly improved RVs.

On sale from this Autumn, the Transit Custom has secured a 10.5 per cent improvement in its three-year/60,000-mile residual value compared with its predecessor. That equates to more than £725 than its nearest rival, a £1,975 turnaround.

At four years in service and 80,000 miles, Transit Custom RVs are enhanced by £1,500 – moving the new model from being £1,000 behind its benchmark competitor to £500 ahead.

Mark Ovenden, Ford of Britain managing director, said:  “This is a more stylish and more functional Transit, which also manages to reward owners by retaining more of its value.  Thanks to this latest endorsement by CAP, we’re even more convinced that our new Transit Custom will continue the vehicle’s market leading position.”

A new Ford Transit Custom 290S 100PS six-speed 310Nm model will be worth £6,800 at three years and £5,250 at four years – £725 and £500 ahead of its nearest competition, respectively.
