Alright, folks, let's chat about something that's causing quite the buzz – the Ford Transit Custom MS-RT. Now, at first glance, you might think this van's got the juice to zip past 200 mph, especially with that massive wing and those racing vibes it's throwing off.

But, let's not get ahead of ourselves because, despite its sporty makeover, the power under the hood is sticking to the standard lineup. Yep, that means the diesel, the plug-in hybrid, and even the EV options haven't been given any extra oomph.

This van is turning heads and making waves with an aggressive body kit and larger wheels that could easily make you think it's ready to tear up a racetrack. The front is all about making a statement with those huge (but kinda pretend) intakes, a sharp splitter, and the MS-RT badge sitting pretty on the grille.

The sides aren't left out either, with body-colored fender extensions and vents that add a bit more muscle to its look. But the real showstopper? It's gotta be that rear wing that makes you think this van could fly if you pushed it hard enough.

And if you're wondering about the wheels – they're a new set of anthracite 19-inch beauties wrapped in Goodyear Eagle Sport rubber. Not just for show, they actually lighten the load a bit and widen the track for a more planted feel on the road.

Step inside, and it's clear the MS-RT isn't just about looks. The front seats are snug with extra bolstering, and there's this cool blue stitching on the eco-leather and suede that just screams "premium." Plus, all the high-spec trimmings like dual-zone climate control and a rear-view camera are part of the package, so you're cruising in comfort.

Now, about those powertrains. Despite the sporty exterior, the options remain the same – a diesel, a PHEV, and an EV. The electric option is the star of the show, pushing out up to 282 hp and promising zero emissions, while the PHEV is a neat middle ground with a combined 229 hp. The diesel? It's there for the traditionalists, offering solid performance without the frills.

So, if you've been dreaming of a van that looks like it belongs on a racetrack but is really more at home on city streets or carrying your gear, the Ford Transit Custom MS-RT might just be your next big crush. Ford's already taking orders, so if this blend of practicality and performance has you intrigued, you might want to get in line. Deliveries kick off in mid-2024, and it's shaping up to be quite the ride.
