Comfort and Design

Ford ingeniously revised the Transit Custom’s design to maximize space compared to its predecessor. By shifting the wheels forward, the cab gains increased legroom while allowing for the dashboard’s relocation. Automatic models feature a stalk gear shifter on the steering column, whereas manual vans integrate the stick into the dashboard, creating a more spacious, uncluttered floor space—facilitating easy movement across the van, especially from the passenger side. Although some controls may seem randomly placed initially, such as the engine start button and the electronic handbrake release lever, familiarizing yourself resolves any initial confusion. Generally, the Transit Custom boasts excellent material quality, offering a comfortable and roomy interior. However, due to a slightly lower roof for improved access to car parks, passengers taller than six feet might find headroom limited. Yet, adjustable seats mitigate this concern for the driver. Visibility remains favorable with twin mirrors on each side, complemented by the inclusion of a reversing camera in most models.
