JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Ford’s large Tourneo Custom family/business bus is now available in SA with a six-speed auto gearbox spun by a ”new-generation” two-litre turbodiesel engine attached to an advanced anti-emissions system.
The engine is available as a 96kW unit on Trend units and 136kW version on the Limited version. Also being introduced on LTD models are a 20cm touchscreen and ”following” cruise control.
Ford SA’s Doreen Mashinini told The Corner in a media release: “The Tourneo Custom will suit a wide range of applications from family transport to upmarket executive shuttle – or simply as a spacious and very adaptable vehicle for large families.
“We’ve reacted to demand… the six-speed auto gives low running costs as well as extremely low emissions through the use of AdBlue (an additive delivered from a small reservoir – Ed).
This engine delivers 96kW in the Trend model or 136kW on the Limited.”
The Custom Ltd’s 20cm infotainment system gives audio and smartphone connectivity; another major benefit is ”following” cruise control.
