    Ford Transit - advertising?

    Has anyone noticed a lack of advertising going on for the new Transit? Its probably one of the only vehicles on the market which can claim "all-new" and yet they don't advertise it at all anywhere.

    Also is anyone aware that the serious range of Transits is actually being sold? The LWB/Tall roof/RWD models are now on sale but there have been no media releases about it.

    This months "Delivery" magazine pays out on Ford for their lack of advertising and targets Graeme Whickman who is the vice president of sales, marketing and service division and odd choice of model options for us with the weak 92KW engine rather than the 114KW tune the NZ market gets.

    Unfortunately they do not have the link to the article on their website but it makes you ask questions

    Yeah I've actually seen two on the road locally, (I'm assuming you can unless they were test cars?)

    EDIT: Its on Ford's website, also they're all 2.2L engines even in the bigger Transits, what a load of crap why such a small engine? Why couldn't we get the 3.2 or the Ecoboost V6 like the USA?
