Transit Courier revealed
The new Transit Courier - Ford's compact van - was unveiled at the 2013 Commercial Vehicle show in Birmingham. Similar in size to the Fiat Qubo and Citroen Nemo it sits below the Transit Connect in the Ford van range.
It will be available with the Dagenham-built 1.5-litre 75PS and 1.6-litre 95PS Duratorq TDCi diesel engines, plus the 1.0-litre 100PS EcoBoost petrol engine, the International Engine of the Year 2012. The cabin has smart stowage including a mega-centre console capable of storing A4 documents and small laptops, overhead stowage and a storage drawer under the driver’s seat. A device dock in the centre of the instrument panel enables drivers to store, mount and charge mobile devices including phones and satnavs.
With a 660kg payload it also has the longest load length in the class at 1.62 metres with access through a sliding side door. A full-height, full-width steel bulkhead (glazed or unglazed) is standard while there's an optional folding mesh bulkhead and fold-dive passenger seat to accommodate extended length items, with class-leading load length of 2.59 metres.

2018 Ford Transit Courier revealed The Transit Courier is the smallest member of Ford’s Transit range, and the 2018 model brings a refreshed front-end appearance that incorporates a reshaped grille opening and revised design for the lower fascia.
Meeting Euro 6.2 emissions standards, the updated powertrain line-up offers buyers the choice of fuel-efficient 1.5-litre TDCi diesel and 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engines. All vehicles feature Ford’s six-speed manual transmission in place of the outgoing model’s five-speed gearbox, offering improved shift quality, refinement and contributing to better real-world fuel-efficiency.
The cabin features a redesigned centre console design for enhanced ergonomics, including a larger six-inch colour touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system that is available on higher series models, and positioned closer to the driver for improved visibility and ease-of-use.
For the ultimate in low running costs, a fuel-efficiency package is offered as standard on diesel models, which integrates optimised aerodynamics with an Active Grille Shutter that improves warm-up times and reduces aero-drag.
New Transit Courier offers urban van operators a payload capacity ranging from 500-590 kg, load volumes up to 2.4 m3 (VDA), and a choice of van and kombi bodystyles. The series line-up now also includes a new Limited variant, providing customers with an alternative to the dynamic Sport model at the top of the range.
