New 2.0 Single Turbo engine with AdBlue®
The all-new automatic derivatives of the Tourneo Custom Bus are powered by the latest generation 2.0-litre Single Turbo diesel engine, which is derived from the impressive units used in the current Ford Ranger and Everest models.
Two versions of this engine are available, with the unit in the mid-level Tourneo Custom Trend producing 96kW of power matched to 385Nm of torque. The top-spec Tourneo Custom Limited delivers 136kW allied to a substantial torque peak of 415Nm – which guarantees impressive all-round performance, whether negotiating traffic in busy city commutes or heading out onto the open road.
In both models, power is delivered to the front wheels via the six-speed automatic transmission that does duty in the current Ranger 2.2 and 3.2-litre models, delivering great responsiveness and all-round performance. It offers conventional automatic shifting in “Drive”, as well as “Sport” mode for more responsive performance. Additionally, “Manual” mode with SelectShift gives the driver control over the gearshift points, which is particularly useful when towing.
All-new dashboard, SYNC®3 for the first time on Tourneo
While the exterior styling of the new Tourneo Custom automatic models is unchanged from the recently facelifted range, the cabin environment has been enhanced with an all-new dashboard and instrument panel based on Ford’s new interior design philosophy – pioneered on the current Fiesta and EcoSport. This offers an attractive, user-centric layout that is influenced by consumer interactions with smart devices and tablets.
Ford’s SYNC®3 communications and entertainment system sees its first introduction in the range-topping Tourneo Custom Limited Automatic, allowing drivers to control audio functions and connected smartphones using simple, conversational voice commands.
On the Trend Automatic, a four-inch screen is supplied, using a simpler version of SYNC®3. On both systems, a total of eight USB ports are located throughout the cabin for charging mobile devices. An integrated 230v power socket is available as an optional item to power various devices, such as laptop computers, while on the move.
Exceptional safety and standard features
The Tourneo Custom boasts an extensive array of standard and optional safety features. In the event of a collision, occupants are protected with a full array of front, curtain and side impact airbags as standard fitment. This is complemented by active driving safety features including the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Hill Launch Assist (HLA), Roll-Over Mitigation (ROM), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA). Additionally, Ford’s Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is fitted on both derivatives, which alerts the driver as soon as any tyre deflation is detected.
The extensive range of optional items, available on Trend and Limited models, includes front and rear parking sensors, a rear parking camera, Lane Keeping Aid and Lane Departure Warning, as well as the Blind Spot Detection System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert and trailer coverage.
The new automatic models are equipped as standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, while the existing manual derivatives retain 16-inch rims.
