Ford Transit Starts New Year With Motor Home Award
29th January, 2009
Ford Transit has won its first award for 2009. For the second year running, Transit was judged the best
base vehicle by the UK's Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly (MMM) magazine.
As the Base Vehicle of the Year for 2009, the judges said Transit engines offered plenty of torque and
load-pulling capacity, and the twin rear wheel versions were rock-solid on the road. They also said
consumer confidence in Fordís reliability and dealer network for servicing and warranty work remained
strong, while optional items like steering wheel mounted cruise control and audio buttons made driving much
Steve Kimber, commercial vehicles director, Ford of Britain, said: "It is pleasing to hear again that
Transit is the backbone of Britain. Seeing MMM consumers rating our dealer network highly is a testament to
the product and the staff who make Transit ownership experience the best."
