The Ford Transit Custom is a fantastic van, but it can only seat a maximum of 6 people. If you need to carry more passengers and you want to do it in comfort, consider the wonders of the Ford Tourneo Custom.
The new Tourneo Custom is a sleek, smooth, and stylish passenger carrier with Ford quality and reliability built in. The interior is extremely comfortable and well-appointed with soft-touch features, leather trim on some models, and an abundance of leg room for every passenger. The ceiling is high enough that no one will feel cramped from above either. There’s plenty of storage space for luggage, and the seat configurations can be changed (in up to 30 ways!) to adapt to your needs on every journey.
Seating 8 or 9 in individual, comfortable seats, the Ford Tourneo Custom is perfect for large families, small groups, hotels and other businesses. It allows 6 of the seats to face each other, so meetings on the go or family games are no problem.
You can get the van in a short wheelbase (L1) model or a long wheelbase (L2) variant; the L2 provides extra space for luggage, shopping, technology, or whatever else you might need to take with you. There’s even a Tourneo Custom Shuttle Bus option.
The van is equipped with Ford’s Euro 6 EcoBlue 2.0-litre diesel engine in a range of horsepowers: 105hp, 130hp, and 185hp. There’s also a brand new, plug-in hybrid model for those who consider their environmental impact a priority when making purchasing decisions. (And shouldn’t we all!) Either way, you’re guaranteed of the right amount of power when you need it from Ford.
In terms of transmission, the Tourneo Custom is available with Ford’s 6-speed manual gearbox or with their 6-speed automatic transmission depending on the model. Or even with a 1-speed automatic drivetrain on the plug-in hybrid, but don’t worry that it won’t go fast or slow enough! It just works differently to a “normal” transmission because it’s a hybrid van.
Like Ford’s new vehicles in general, the Tourneo Custom comes equipped with Ford’s SYNC3 system as a part of the infotainment package. SYNC3 allows connection to apps like Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto for maps, messages, and hands-free calls. Another advantage of the Tourneo Custom is its built-in modem, Ford’s FordPass Connect. This enables the van to be a WiFi hotspot almost wherever it is, so it could be enormously useful for those last-minute meetings. Or even if your passengers are desperate for some new music!
Available in a wide range of trims, the Ford Tourneo Custom gives you plenty of style and interior options. The Zetec is the entry-level trim, but even that comes as standard with:
- 16” alloys
- Electric and heated door mirrors
- Remote central locking
- Privacy glass on the rear windows
- 8” touchscreen “infotainment” display with SYNC3, FordPass Connect, USB connectivity, remote audio controls, and 10 speakers
- Versatile, changeable, removable conference seating
- Carpet in the passenger and luggage sections
- Front air conditioning with a pollen filter
- Second-row windows that flip open
- Theatre-style dimming on the rear internal lights
- Cruise control with speed limiter
The Ford Tourneo Custom Titanium, the next trim up and a very popular choice, gets extras!
- 17” alloys
- Perimeter alarm
- Electric and heated door mirrors that are also power-foldable, come with a blind-spot eliminator, a side indicator, and are colour-coded to match the van’s body
- Air-conditioning in the rear passenger compartment
- Sunblinds on second-row windows (and third-row windows too on L2 models)
Beyond The Tourneo Custom Titanium, there’s the Titanium X (dark tarnish 17” alloys, Bi-Xenon headlights, rearview camera, leather trim, super-comfy 10-way adjustable driver’s seat, etc.), the Active, and the Sport. Whatever style and specs you want, Ford have got options for you.
