2012 Ford Transit

  • New Transit van to be shown to the public.
  • Expansion of Ford commercial vehicles.
  • Dakar driver Chris Visser will be present.

PRETORIA, Gauteng - National Maize Producers' Organisation (Nampo) agricultural show is a huge event on the calendar for Ford SA which will again showcase its products and to the farming community.

The event will be held at Nampo Park in Bothaville, Free State.
Ford SA's marketing manager Gavin Golightly explained: "Farming is important to Ford. For the 2014 show we will showcase passenger and commercial vehicles and unveil the Ford Transit panel van and chassis cab."

The Transit is fairly new addition to the Ford fleet, complementing the existing Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom. It will be available in three versions - bus, panel van, chassis cab - each with a 2.2 Duratorq engine.


The Transit has 13 790 litres load capacity and roof height of 207cm. In chassis cab trim it can be customised for a number of roles.

Golightly said: "The new Transit is an exciting vehicle for us. It highlights Ford's dedication to bringing commercial vehicles to South Africa."

Ford Racing's Dakar driver Chris Visser and his V8 Ranger will also be at the event. Visser will be there to talk about the vehicle and the 2014 Dakar Rally. The Ranger will feature in practical demo models on a 4x4 track, where Ford's team of off-road instructors will put Odyssey Rangers through their paces.

Other Ford products at the show will include the one-litre EcoSport and Fiesta, Focus, Figo, Kuga, Transit Custom Sport Van and a full complement of Rangers.

The 2014 Harvest Day Show will take place at Nampo Park through May 14-16 2014.
