FORD’S Tourneo Custom people-mover will soon be available with more powerful and fuel-efficient 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engines, new EcoBlue Hybrid powertrains and driver assistance technologies, including Active Park Assist.
On sale from mid-2019, Ford said the new versions delivers up to a 6% improvement in fuel efficiency for reduced running costs. The 2.0-litre EcoBlue engine will be offered as a new 185PS variant with 415Nm of torque, for more greater pulling power when carrying up to nine occupants and luggage.
It will also be the first vehicle in its class to offer 48‑volt mild-hybrid technology to further reduce fuel costs for owners and operators. The new EcoBlue Hybrid variant delivers an anticipated 3% fuel efficiency improvement, based on WLTP analysis.
FordPass Connect on-board modem technology is introduced, turning the Tourneo Custom into a WiFi hotspot for up to 10 devices, while advanced new technology features help drivers park, tow, prevent collisions and even avoid speeding fines with greater confidence.
Following the launch of the new model at the start of 2018 – with an all-new premium interior and stylish new front-end design – Ford sold more than 17,000 Tourneo Custom people-movers during the year across Europe, a 28 per cent increase compared with the previous year.
