The Tourneo Custom – which will take the iconic Transit name in commercial vehicle form – was first unveiled in concept form at the 2012 Geneva motor show and has been confirmed for production.
The Transite/Tourneo follows Ford's Kinetic design approach that features on the company's passenger car range, including a sportier stance, bold rising shoulder line, flush glazing, distinctive trapezoidal grille and prominent wheel lips.
Available in eight or nine seat configurations as a passenger vehicle, the Tourneo Custom comes in both short and long wheelbase, which measure in at 4,970mm and 5,430mm respectively while the vehicle stands at less than two meters high. The longer wheelbase means there is extended luggage space behind the third seat row.
The cockpit features a driver-focused instrument panel with technologies also found in Ford's passenger car range. The rear seats are a completely new design that can be folded into multiple configurations and removed in sections or completely.
Ford's SYNC voice-activated connectivity system enables the connection of mobile phones and an advanced restraint system including driver, passenger, and side and curtain airbags feature in the Tourneo Custom. A rear-view camera is also integrated into the rear view mirror as an added safety feature.
