Next-Generation Ford Transit Custom Is Headed To Australia

Australia has gained or is set to gain a number of new Blue Oval products, including the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Ford Puma, and the all-new S650 Ford Mustang, though the latter model’s launch has been pushed back to next year. Now, the Australian Blue Oval lineup continues to expand, as the next-generation Ford Transit Custom – which debuted last year alongside the new e-Transit Custom – is also set to launch in that part of the world in 2024, according to CarExpert.

Offered in a variety of configurations with all sorts of different powertrain options, the new Ford Transit Custom will be sold in Australia in two different flavors – one packing the turbocharged Ford 2.0L EcoBlue diesel – with outputs of either 100 kW (134 horsepower) or 125 kW (168 horsepower) – paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission, alongside the all-electric e-Transit Custom, which utilizes a a 74 kWh battery pack and an electric motor generating 160 kW (215 horsepower) and 415 Nm (306 pound-feet) of torque.

Interestingly, Australia is not getting the new Ford Transit Custom PHEV, which is available in Europe and Pairs the 2.5L Atkinson cycle gas engine with an 11.8 kWh battery to deliver an electric-only driving range of up to 57 kilometers (35 miles), as well as 2.3 kW of portable power via ProPower Onboard. The diesel variant can also be mated with a six-speed manual in Europe, too.

Otherwise, the Ford Transit Custom can be had with all-wheel drive as an option, with a max towing capacity of 2,500 kilograms (5,511 pounds). Regardless of powertrain choice, the next-gen Ford Transit Custom rides on an all new architecture that gives it a lower cargo floor height and space for an independent rear suspension. Four variants are available – including two different lengths and two different roof heights, panel van, double-cab-in-van, kombi, and L-shaped bulkhead body styles, and Base, Trend, Limited, Active, Trail, and Sport trims.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
