The Ford Transit Custom is the best-selling commercial van in the UK – and for a good reason. Not only does this medium-sized van boast a stylish design, comfortable interior, and superb handling, but the Ford Transit Custom dimensions also give you one of the best payload ratings in the medium van sector.
Load capacity and ease of loading are two of the most important qualities to consider when purchasing a commercial van. To decide which van is the best fit for your needs, assess the custom load space dimensions.
The most important van dimensions to consider are:
Ford Transit Custom dimensions are given in four different sizes. The smallest size is the short wheelbase and standard roof height which is labelled L1H1. You can also purchase a high roof which is labelled L1H2.
The long-wheelbase gives you more loadspace and is labelled L2H1 for the standard roof and H2H2 for the high roof.
Most commercial van drivers stick to the standard H1 roof because they are easier to get into car parks and under low bridges. However, delivery drivers in the city may prefer a high rook so you can store more cargo. The dimensions can be enhanced with tailor-made Ford Transit custom racking.
The Ford Transit Custom L1H1 dimension is the smallest of the Transit Custom family. The short wheelbase has a load length of 2,555mm which can be extended to 3,085 if you use the bulkhead. The maximum load volume is 6.0 cubic metres.
The Ford Transit Custom L1H2 has a maximum load length of 2,554mm and a load height of 1,778mm. The load volume is 7.2 cubic metres.
The dimension of the Ford Transit Custom L2H1 gives you 2,921mm of load length and a load height of 1,406mm. The load volume is 6.8 cubic metres.
The largest of the Ford Transit Custom gives you 2,921 load lengths and a load height of 1778mm. The load volume is 8.3 cubic metres.
The Ford Transit Custom interior load space is among the best in its class. There is sufficient room to load 8x4ft boards flat on the floor.
You can also accommodate long items such as ladders, pipes and planks, especially if you optimise the dimensions by loading through the bulkhead, and make best use of the space by installing customised van racking.
