The figures have shown that the Ford Transit is the UK’s most popular commercial van, and by some margin too. It’ has been the market leading van in the UK since 1965, over which time more than 2.2 million vans been sold and, incredibly, around 700,000 remain on the road. One in every four UK vans is a Ford Transit. 2013 saw the
become the third bestselling name plate behind the Fiesta and the Focus. Its sales were so impressive that it even out-sold the BMW 3 Series. So its no co-incidence that there is a high demand for their engines.The price of fuel being what it is, every business is keen to use as little as possible and the Transit certainly measures up. The latest range adds super-efficient ECOnetic versions that emit as little as 169g/km of CO2 and return an impressive 44mpg.
The Transit range includes the Transit Courier, Transit Connect and also the Transit Custom which is a mid-sized panel van. There is now a staggering 450 Ford Transit variations from panel vans to minibuses. Within that huge number of variations there is a van to cater to every need.
Ford has successfully improved panel van loads by 10% across the range and added a range of new technology features which the make the vehicle a lot easier to drive. Features like Ford’s regenerative braking, Auto-Stop-Start, a gear shift indicator and acceleration control the efficiency performance but so does the latest 2.2 litre Duratorq found in the Transit models. The engine has managed to improve fuel economy by 6%.
Ford Transit Engines
Here at MKL Motors, we aim to offer high quality replacement Ford Transit Engines. However, due to the nature of the usage of commercial vans, its not always possible to find a good quality used Transit engine and the option of a brand new Transit engine is uneconomical due to their hefty price tag. But, by offering our customers reconditioned Ford Transit engines, we feel our clients are getting their best option. Simply put, a
reconditioned Ford Transit engine
is one that has been stripped, overhauled and rebuilt with new components. The level of rebuilding in each engine will vary from one to the next depending on their individual requirements. But the overall aim of the process is to rebuild then engine closer to its original factory condition. Meaning you are getting an engine which now essentially, has ‘zero’ miles.
Over the years we have developed strong experience in the field of engine reconditioning, and with a highly skilled engineering task force at our disposal, we are confident we can provide you with the
high quality Transit engine
that you need.
Those of us who have experienced an engine failure know how daunting the process can be, so we also offer full fitting and vehicle recovery services for our customers so that we can make their engine replacement process as quick and painless as possible.
