Koln, 21. Mar 2012 – until recently there were only the pictures of a study, now ford officially presents the tourneo custom. The van is expected to score with more comfort when it goes on sale towards the end of the year.
Sync also in the tourneo
The interior of the tourneo custom has been completely redesigned and is also intended to resemble the cabins of ford’s passenger cars. In addition, flexibility is the key: 30 different seat configurations are possible. Ford also plans to offer the sync entertainment and communication system in the tourneo custom. The system includes an emergency assistant that automatically notifies rescue services in the event of an accident and transmits the vehicle’s position. Also on board: a heated windshield, a reversing camera, a lane departure warning system, a drowsiness warning system and a misfueling protection system.
The tourneo custom people carrier is joined by the transit custom station wagon and transit custom panel van. The vehicles, which are available with a short or long wheelbase, are generally equipped with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. Propulsion will be provided by a 2.2-liter diesel in three power stages: 100 hp (310 nm), 125 hp (350 nm) and the 155 hp engine with 385 nm. The consumption of the most powerful engine in the nedc is given by ford with 6.9 liters per 100 kilometers.
