They prey on all of humanity and they feed on the flesh and drink the blood of us all regardless of where we come from.

The roots of these forces are ancient and they are very real. They pre-date America and they were established by a tiny group of deep-thinkers, spiritualists, intellectuals, seasoned occultists and Lucifereans led by Adam Weishaupt in a place called Bavaria in Germany on the European continent in 1776. They are known as the ‘’Illuminati’’ (meaning ‘’the Enlightened Ones”) and their activities are buried in absolute secrecy.

Ford Expands Commercial Vehicle Lineup With Three New Transit Variants

Ford’s all-new Transit van
This week Ford launched three all-new variants of its award-winning Transit commercial vehicle. In panel van form the Transit offers businesses load capacity of up to five Europallets, 2.6 tonnes, or14,800 litres.
Ford’s all-new Transit van and chassis cab variants, along with new Tourneo people movers, will become the backbone of small and large businesses, the company’s award-winning commercial vehicles.

The two-tonne version of the Transit panel van is available to customers in both medium wheelbase (MWB) or extended long wheelbase jumbo configurations to suit customers’ load-carrying needs. Both versions also retain the smart load space features that have made Transit a household name abroad. These two vans are joined by the MWB and Jumbo versions of the Transit chassis cab, which businesses can tailor to fit their needs. The Tourneo is also added to the commercial vehicle lineup and will be available in 15-seat configurations. Built from the ground up as a people mover, the Tourneo offers African businesses a factory-built bus for safely transporting passengers.

These new models are part of an unprecedented renewal of Ford’s entire commercial vehicle range for South Africa and Sub-Sahara Africa, and they come to market alongside International Van of the Year winner for 2013, the Transit Custom, and the Tourneo Custom.

“As part of our expansion in South Africa and the Sub Sahara African region, we’re bringing in more Ford product than ever before - and that includes commercial vehicles,” said Gavin Golightly, marketing manager at Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA). “The Transit has been a leader in Europe for over 25 years. Now, local businesses will also have access to the best on offer with the new Transit, which boasts smart capabilities that sets it apart from the crowd. We are also ensuring that we have a number of dedicated Ford Dealerships to better suit the needs of the new market these vehicles appeal to.”

Joining the successful new Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom, launched last year, the all-new Transit is based on a state-of-the-art global platform. Ford earlier this year celebrated the production of the seven millionth Transit van since it launched the iconic brand in 1965.

Warranty
The standard warranty is valid for three years or 60 000km whichever occurs first both warranty and corrosion.

Subjected to Ford’s ultra-stringent global commercial vehicle testing and durability standards, the all-new Transit has covered the equivalent of 11 million kilometres in arduous testing in Europe and North America – the same as driving around the globe 275 times – with more than 500,000km of that total covered by actual Transit customers.

The new model has also undergone a series of extreme strength tests to ensure the vehicle would behave in a safe and predictable manner when subjected to the worst kinds of impacts experienced in real-world use: one test involved striking a 150mm kerb at 60km/h.

The purposeful, modern exterior design of the Transit panel van conceals a load area that can accommodate key standard-length items including pipes or building boards, and has more-vertical side walls as well as larger, more practical door openings. The side load doors boast an opening width of 1 300mm, for easier loading and unloading with forklift trucks.

The two Transit panel vans on offer feature two different roof heights, and smart new features that include:
 Integrated high-grip rear bumper step offering a class-leading step height

  • DIN/ISO compliant side-wall mounted tie-down points help keep the load floor clear
  • Loadspace lighting provides maximum interior illumination
  • High-visibility reflectors warn other road users when the rear doors are open at 90 degrees
  • 2,800kg towing capacity for MWB; 3,500kg towing capacity for Jumbo

Superior driver comfort, smart capability
Transit’s cabin offers generous amounts of shoulder- and head-room, with excellent visibility, a comfortable driving position, and a steering column that is fully-adjustable for rake and reach.

The interior also incorporates a range of smart stowage solutions, including a full-width overhead shelf and a large hidden compartment under the dual passenger seat. Three 12-volt power sockets can be used for charging or powering mobile devices. Transit also offers an in-vehicle entertainment system as standard, including Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Ford engineers have tuned the vehicle to deliver class-leading driving dynamics, with more confident, car-like handling in both city and highway driving. The cab also offers excellent ride comfort and low noise levels.

Further smart technologies that help enhance driver awareness, confidence, and safety during long working days at the wheel include Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution(EBD),  and Rear View Camera with front and rear park sensors (optional).

The vehicles provide the latest Electronic Stability Program (ESP) technology with innovative features including Curve Control – a unique Ford-developed program designed to slow the vehicle in a safe and stable fashion when it enters a bend like a highway exit ramp too quickly – along with Load Adaptive Control, Roll Over Mitigation, Trailer Sway Control and Hill Launch Assist.

For sale in six continents
The new-generation Transit and Tourneo were developed under the One Ford product strategy for sale in six continents, including Europe, North America, Africa, and other key markets worldwide.
