AUCKLAND, 4 December 2019 – The award-winning Ford Transit Cargo has been updated for the MY2019.75 to offer more car-like comfort, infotainment and Driver Assist Technology, adding to its practicality and cargo-carrying smarts.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection[ii] is now standard on every MY2019.75 Cargo model, joining the Ford Transit Custom and Ford Ranger which also offer AEB on every model and body-type. Transit Cargo has also been given a fresh exterior update and revised cabin to enhance its car-like features, comfort and practicality.

“The tech-loaded next-gen Transit Cargo gives customers more convenience and helps them be productive on the move,” said Simon Rutherford, Managing Director Ford New Zealand. “These extensive upgrades – inside and out – like SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are what customers tell us they’ve are looking for.[i]  And with AEB now standard on every Transit – and our whole commercial vehicle line-up – customers can benefit from this significant technology whether they’re in a Transit Cargo, Transit Custom or Ranger.”

Every MY2019.75 Ford Transit Cargo is equipped with the powerful 125kW/390Nm EcoBlue engine and latest SYNC® 3[iii] infotainment, while van and bus models feature a standard full-colour reversing camera as well as front and rear parking sensors for greater convenience.

Transit’s car-like comfort and driving manner is improved while cargo carrying abilities haven’t been compromised, allowing customers to get the most out of their day.
