The Ford commercial vehicle range has won numerous awards over the years, with the Ford Transit arguably being one of the most popular work vehicles ever, so it’s hardly surprising that this year Ford has already started winning more awards.

Each year, the highly coveted What Van? awards take place, providing an independent assessment of the commercial vehicle market place with key awards handed out based on the thought and feelings of a special panel of judges – with the pinnacle award being the van of the year.

Ford have received this top award before and this year the new Ford Transit Courier has been judged the winner.

As a member of the Transit family, the Transit Courier is a more compact version which still provides huge amounts of storage space and accessibility, on top of the premium interior and innovative technology which is now very much the norm for Ford vehicles, both commercial and retail. When you consider its great looks and affordability, the Transit Courier was the clear winner for the judges, beating strong competition from Peugeot, Citroen and Fiat. In fact, the Transit Courier was also given the What Van? Small van of the year award too!

But it wasn't just the Ford Transit Courier which won an award, oh no! The latest Ford Ranger was award pick up of the year thanks to a robust chassis that offers stunning looks and incredible accessibility. The variety of setups available also helped it pick up the top spot (with the option for 4x4 and 4x2, multiple seating arrangements, multiple engine sizes and so on) which a lot of the others on the short list did not have.

Another member of the Transit team picked up an award too. The Ford Transit Connect picked up the best light van award, thanks to its fantastic updated looks and excellent choice of engine options including the award winning EcoBoost engine. This award is particularly impressive for Ford as Fiat had won for the previous 4 years in a row which illustrates the efforts Ford has made in recent years to regenerate its commercial vehicle offerings.

2015 is set to be a very strong year for Ford and starting off with so many awards is a great way to begin!
