Ford Transit Custom Active

New Ford Transit Custom Active

The Ford Transit Custom Active is more than just your office on the road.

The optional mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (manual transmission only) gives you confidence on challenging terrain by sending power to the wheels with most traction. And a bold new design makes sure you’ll always stand out from the crowd.

From working in the city, to weekend camping trips. Wherever you’re going, Transit Custom Active is built to make every journey effortless.

With one of the largest cubic volumes of any mid-sized van, the Custom is great for day-to-day tasks. The short wheelbase van offers a capacity of six cubic metres, while the long wheelbase increases this to 6.8 cubic metres. Maximum payload can reach up to 1,459kg.


With a striking, new exterior design and advanced capability, Transit Custom Active is built to break free from the routine. And with premium materials and smart technologies you’ll be comfortable and connected wherever you go.


Transit Custom Active has been given a bold new look to match its impressive capability. Unique 17” alloy wheels, contrast mirrors and a signature Active grille make sure you’ll get noticed. A full-length side-step makes access to the van effortless, and roof rails let you carry even more cargo. The van is also available with  optional mechanical Limited-Slip Differential, to keep you moving on challenging terrain.


Transit Custom Active is available with an advanced system that’s built to help you tackle difficult terrain with ease. The optional mechanical Limited-Slip Differential reduces unwanted wheel spin, especially on loose or uneven surfaces, by directing power to the wheel with the most traction. This helps to keep you and your cargo moving forwards when you need it most.


Inside, Transit Custom Active has been given a premium, partial leather trim. ‘Nordic Blue’ stitching creates a unique interior to complement the bold exterior design. Smart technologies, like FordPass Connect, keep you connected wherever your journey takes you.

Engines and performance

The latest Transit Custom Active benefits from a highly efficient 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine that was introduced in 2016. This saves fuel without compromising performance and meets the strict Euro Stage 6 emissions standard. A six-speed manual gearbox comes as standard, offering a safe, smooth and quiet ride. Meanwhile the Transit Custom Plug-in Hybrid, when fully charged, can take you more than 30 miles (48kilometres) using the electric motor alone. Ideal on those short trips in the city that usually result in low efficiency and more money spent on fuel. On longer journeys, the 1.0 litre EcoBoost engine helps to extend the van’s range to over 310 miles (500 kilometres) – working with regenerative braking to recharge the battery. And once sufficiently charged, you can switch back to electric only, helping you save money and reduce pollution.

Safety and technology

The Ford Transit Custom Active benefits from a wide range of technology-enhanced safety features including intelligent speed assist, adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitoring system and more. With regards to entertainment, Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system enables smartphone connectivity allowing you to play music, access navigation and control your apps while out on the road.
