Van and pick-up manufacturers have revealed some of the models they’ll be showcasing at this year’s CV Show.
The event, the largest of its kind in the UK, will be taking place at the NEC in Birmingham between April 24 and April 26.
Among the major exhibitors will be Ford, which will be holding the official European launch of facelifted versions of the UK’s bestselling van, the Transit Custom, along with the passenger-carrying Tourneo.
The Blue Oval will also be staging the official launch of a revised Transit Connect and Tourneo Connect, showing a revised Transit Courier, and also exhibiting a new special edition version of its Ranger pick-up.
