New Concept Car: Ford Tourneo

The Ford Tourneo Custom Concept previews the look of the next Ford Transit.

It uses Ford’s kinetic design language, following in the footsteps of the Fiesta and Focus, with the same trapezoidal grille on its nose, while the headlamps taper upwards with a distinctive kick in the rear side windows and windscreen. LED lighting and 18-inch alloy wheels give it an upmarket look.

Visibility will still be good, thanks to a large glass area, but a reversing camera covers blind spots at the rear. The tailgate stretches from the floor to the roof, allowing for an almost uninterrupted rear loading area, and sliding side doors also appear. As with the current Transit, both short and long-wheelbase variants will be produced, and an eight-seat version will be offered as Ford chases both commercial and leisure markets.

Ford has confirmed that the Tourneo will be powered by the 2.2-litre Duratorq diesel with 98, 123 and 153bhp power outputs. All will be front-wheel drive and come with a six-speed manual gearbox. Stop-start and regenerative braking will be standard.

Inside, the fully trimmed cabin offers features such as driver and passenger side and curtain airbags, an Emergency Assistance system to locate the vehicle in a major accident, Lane Departure Warning and Driver Alert anti-fatigue systems, as well as voice control for audio and phone connectivity.

The Ford Tourneo will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, and is expected on sale in 2013. For more details click here.
