Ford’s commercial vehicles have been recognised at the Auto Express 2021 New Car Awards.

The Ford Ranger has been awarded ‘Pick Up of the Year’ for the third consecutive year, while the Transit Custom was named ‘Van of the Year’.

The Ranger accounts for 40 percent market share of the UK’s pick-up segment in 2021 year-to-date, and one in three pick-ups sold in across Europe. The Ford Transit Custom is the UK’s best-selling vehicle for 2021 year-to-date.

“Vans have helped to keep the country moving in the past 18 months, and the Transit Custom is the best in the business” said Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief, Auto Express. “Whether you go for the basic steel-wheeled, black-bumpered Leader, choose the rugged Trail and Active variants, or the high-spec Sport and MS-RT versions, it really is the van that can.”

Transit remains the UK’s best-selling commercial vehicle – a title it has held for 56 years.
