Minibus Specifications

The New Ford Transit Minibus

Ford’s excellent new Minibus range is available in 11, 12, 14, 15 and 17 seat versions. All are powered by Ford’s powerful turbo diesel engines in a choice of 2 outputs, both of which achieve the strict Euro 6 emission requirements.

The new minibus also benefits from further development of Ford’s focus on efficiency’s giving increased MPG as well as extended service intervals (up to 30,000 miles or 2 Years), meaning your minibus spends less time at the dealership and more time available to you.

There are 2 models in the range, the Base and Trend – both have daytime running lights, Bluetooth, power side step, curve control, tinted glass and remote central locking. The Trend in addition includes such items as metallic paint, power heated and folding mirrors, heated front windscreen and also front and rear parking sensors.

The vehicle is without rival in equipment as standard; some key features include:

• 62 mph speed limiter

• electronic stability control

• digital tachograph (for overseas journeys, private hire and privately funded schools)

• two,2kg fully compliant water/foam fire extinguishers and first aid kit with VOSA approved content
