Ford MS-RT Transit Custom LWB DCiV DCT

Ford MS-RT Transit Custom DCiV

REVIEW

Ah, the Ford Transit, the backbone of Britain as the advertising tells us. It has been in production for over 50 years and you can’t drive for more than a minute on our roads without seeing at least one – after all they’ve made over 8 million of them! Fast forward to 2018 at the Transit Custom has got all the best bits from the Ford parts bin to make it the most usable Transit yet. But as good as it is, sometimes you want your van to be a little bit ‘extra’ and be practical and yet sporty at the same time. This is where MS-RT comes in - a collaboration with Malcolm Wilson’s M-Sport (who do Ford’s rally cars) – who take the Transit and modify them with a body kit and parts to give buyers that little bit more personalisation. So outside you get a custom designed body kit with an aggressive front bumper, wider arches and a rear bumper housing the twin exhaust tips from the stainless steel exhaust system. It’s a little harsh to call it a body kit though, such is the high level of finish that you’d think it was a Ford-designed part. There are 18-inch OZ alloy wheels (20’s optional) and you can also get a graphics package to finish off the look. Inside there is a new flat-bottomed steering wheel, leather interior and loads of tech. This particular version is an intriguing vehicle too – it’s the DCIV (Double Cab in Van) version which means there are 5 seats, plus it has the LWB body so there’s a decent load area behind. It also has the 168bhp diesel engine mated to the 6-speed automatic gearbox for easy town driving. Basically this could double up as a family vehicle and work van, perfect for those who only want one vehicle and don’t like the idea of an SUV or MPV. And it looks awesome!
