TrafficFord is to launch the redesigned European Transit range in Australia later this month.

Down Under buyers will have a choice of two engines - a new turbo diesel that produces 19% more power and 9% more torque than the previous model or a revised 2.3 litre petrol engine that is 24% more powerful and has 17% more torque than its predecessor.

The range is being offered in 4 wheelbase variants - short, medium, long and chassis cab - and a medium wheelbase van is new to the range.

By June 2001 17 model/engine/transmission combinations will be on sale.

Station has reached agreement with MSN Carpoint to deliver traffic and travel information to MSN Carpoint customers.

TrafficStation's location-based traffic information services will be integrated into MSN Carpoint and the MSN homepage will soon link visitors to Carpoint Traffic providing an opportunity for users to check local traffic conditions for their area and all TrafficStation metropolitan markets spanning North America.
