Basic list pricing suggests that you'll probably be paying somewhere in the £26,000 to £32,000 bracket for a diesel Expert, depending upon the bodystyle and trim level you choose. As well as the usual panel van, there is a Crew Van option. Van customers get a choice of 'Standard' or 'Long' body lengths. Trim levels start with 'Professional Premium+', then run to 'Asphalt Premium+'. Buyers choose between Euro 6.2 WLTP-compliant BlueHDi diesel engines - a 1.5 or a couple of 2.0-litre units with an automatic option. Or two full-electric options (50kWh or 75kWh), with basic prices starting from around £35,000 after deduction of the available £5,000 government grant.
Equipment levels across the range are a lot more complete than they used to be for Expert owners. All models get twin front airbags, a DAB radio, Bluetooth 'phone compatibility, cruise control with a speed limiter and twin sliding side doors. As usual, there's a full steel bulkhead and a three-person front bench. 'Asphalt Premium+' models further include navigation, 17-inch wheels, a rear parking camera, metallic paint, auto headlamps and wipers, body-coloured bumpers and a 'Moduwork' front bench seat with fold-down section. Safety features include Road sign reading that flashes road signs up on the dash as you pass them. Plus, depending on trim level, your Expert can come with things like 'Driver Attention Alert' to combat drowsiness, a Lane Departure Warning System, Blind Spot Monitoring, Automatic main beam switching, a head-up display and Active Cruise Control. You might also want to specify the 'VisioPark' camera system.
