The Ford Transit Custom van is getting an update, the new passenger variant of the UK’s most popular new van has been revealed at the Frankfurt motor show. Introducing the NEW Ford Transit Custom Tourneo!
The new Ford Transit Custom Tourneo is available with up to nine seats and a range of wheelbase lengths, Ford vans have outlined that the new Tourneo is the only van-based people carrier that has six separate rear seats that can be individually arranged.
Your first sight at the upgrades begin on the exterior. The new Ford Transit Custom Tourneo gets a revised grille and daytime running lights, however it is on the inside of the new van where you really recognise the upgrades! The cabin features improved trim and build quality in an attempt from Ford vans to deliver a more executive feel, with fine-grain leather also helping to add to the upmarket feel of the new Tourneo.
The new Tourneo Custom also boasts a range of cab features, including: an improved air conditioning system for improved cabin ventilation, six USB ports and an enhanced 10-speaker stereo system.
The Ford Transit Custom Tourneo is powered by the latest 2.0-litre Euro 6 compliant EcoBlue diesel engine from Ford vans, which achieves an output of 170ps and will be available with a choice of six-speed manual or six-speed SelectShift automatic transmissions. The Transit Custom Tourneo also has self-levelling rear air suspension to improve the cabin comfort in the new van.
Safety is of paramount importance on the new Ford Transit Custom Tourneo, with the addition of rear traffic alert, blind spot detection and an intelligent speed limiter. The new van also carries over safety features from the existing model, including: collision alert, pedestrian detection, lane keeping, adaptive cruise control and crosswind stability.
Ford vans believe that with the new Tourneo Custom, “every customer can enjoy the best seat in the house!”
The new Ford Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom vans are due to be released early in 2018.
