Ford Transit Awarded 'Van of the Year' 2012

Five trophies were picked up by Ford commercial vehicles picked at the annual awards presented by website Vans A2Z and the 'Van of the Year 2012' was awarded to the Ford Transit , whilst the Ford Ranger was awarded ‘Best Pick-up’ and the Ford Fiesta Van received the‘Highly Commended Small Van’ award.

Commercial vehicles director of Ford UK Steve Clary said "in a tough economic climate, operators are choosing Transit for its reliability and cost of ownership.

The latest models are saving operators hundreds of pounds in fuel, making them the most efficient, durable and technologically-advanced version of this iconic commercial vehicle so far.”

ECOnetic technologies available on new Ford vans include Auto-Start-Stop (which automatically shuts down the engine when at idle, and with the transmission and clutch disengaged) and 70mph Speed Limiter. There are also two new Ford Transit ECOnetic models with CO2 levels from as low as 173g/km an improvement of up to 8.5 per cent in fuel economy and emissions versus the original Transit ECOnetic. The latest Ford Fiesta Van ECOnetic has a class-leading 95g/km CO2.
