Ford Tourneo Custom concept launched in Geneva
This month at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, Ford has introduced the Tourneo Custom concept which comes with a bunch of new features that we haven’t seen from Ford in this segment, like the voice-activated SYNC in-car connectivity system, multi-adjustable and removable rear seating, along with systems like driver alert, lane departure and a rear-view camera.
Under the hood of this concept is a 2.2-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel engine that pumps out 153 hp. That power is sent to the front wheels, and the vehicle is based on the company’s new global platform which will be used for the new generation of the Transit which is scheduled to be revealed next month.
The engines of the new model will include a 2.2-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel that as standard will benefit from the stop/start technology. This engine is going to be available in three configurations: with 99 hp, 124 hp and a more powerful 153 hp configuration. All these three engines will be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox which will send the power to the front axle.
The new generation of the Ford Transit is going to be offered with two wheelbases. The Transit and Tourneo panel vans are going to be manufactured in Turkey, while the units which will have a bare rear chassis are going to be produced at Southampton.
