Ford commercial van revamp - van insurance comparison news

In the latest in a long line of leading commercial vehicle manufacturers to do so, Ford has announced it is to make its ‘biggest ever investment’ in its commercial vehicle line up, with a renewed offering set to hit the showrooms over the next three years. The van insurance comparison sites will have to be quick to keep up with developments in order to find the best priced van insurance on this new range of vans.

The new range is set to include all-new Transit and Transit Connect vans, which will join the Ranger pick-up set to arrive next year. And not to forget the ever popular Fiesta van which is set to receive a mid-life refresh. Van insurance comparison sites will fight it out to offer the best priced insurance premiums on these new vans.

The eagerly awaited all-new transit is not expected to hit the market for at least another couple of years, although the current version is to receive a new line-up of engines which will deliver an improved rate of fuel economy.

As discussed in previous Van Compare articles, if you use a trusted and reputable van insurance comparison site, then an increase in fuel efficiency will often directly lead to a decrease in van insurance premiums.

UK Ford boss, Nigel Sharp, said: “There is a new long-wheelbase version of the most efficient Econetic Transit, which Ford claims would save operators £1600 in fuel over 80,000 miles. In addition to the engine changes, Ford is pushing service intervals out to 30,000 miles and two years.”

The update comes as a result of Ford insiders admitting that the current model is ‘a little heavy and expensive, and not the most fuel efficient.’ This will of course impact on the quotes you are likely to receive from van insurance comparison sites.

Mr Sharp continues: “We’ ve got tremendous heritage and reliability but maybe this is not what all of the industry is looking for. Our biggest weakness, the segment where we’ve got to increase Ford’s share, is the light sub - 1 tonne sector, which used to be the domain of the Ford Escort van.”
