Our Best Medium Van, the Ford Transit Custom, is also the Parkers Van of The Year 2022 in our New Car of The Year awards. It’s simply brilliant at what it does, and takes the overall van honours this year by virtue of a hugely varied range as well as it’s practical capability. Available in basic working versions, unusually sporty variants and even as a plug-in hybrid, it has some of the highest payload ratings in the sector, a well-equipped and car-like cab environment, and can be looked after by the largest light commercial vehicle dealer network in the UK. Add in a great driving experience and plenty of the latest technology, and it’s no wonder this is Britain’s favourite van.
CJ Hubbard, Parkers Van and Pickup Editor says: ‘Ford could easily be resting on its laurels with the Transit Custom, which has been the bestselling van in the UK since its introduction. But instead, it just keeps on expanding the Custom’s appeal, with a continuous programme of updates and the addition of new models to suit an even broader range of customers. From tough workhorse to plug-in hybrid to lifestyle accessory – and everything in between – this van now has so many talents it was the clear choice for the 2021 Parkers Van of the Year Award.’
