Ford is resurrecting the Courier name when a range of small light vans joins the Transit range in 2014 .
Barb Samardzich, vice president product development, Ford of Europe, unveiled Transit as a global brand, adding the all-new two-tonne Transit and Connect light van to the one-tonne Custom Transit line-up at the 2012 Go Further, Hannover CV and Paris Motor Show preview event in Amsterdam. She also hosted a sneak peek of the new Courier, albeit in Torneo, high specification passenger car, guise. It was almost as if Ford was a bit embarrassed by its existence as an LCV.
New Courier is based on Ford’s B-Sector Fiesta and B-Max platform, but it’s the latter that’s of interest in this context. B-Max has Two sliding side doors and no B-pillar, which is pretty neat for a passenger car, but makes fitting a full bulkhead on a van version a tad tricky. We are expecting a Courier van concept to be on Ford’s stand at the IAA Hanover 2012, so will report back with more details, hopefully.
