Ford confirms Tourneo to launch in Australia this year

Ford has confirmed its new Tourneo van will launch in Australia in late 2024, expanding the company’s offering for families looking to enjoy all the activities and adventures of life, in comfort. It will come in two trim levels, Active and Titanium X.

Offering spacious accommodation for up to eight occupants and a comprehensive range of standard features, including power side doors, the Tourneo is based on the recently launched Transit Custom long wheelbase platform.

Setting the Tourneo apart from its rivals is an innovative and unique flexible track-based seating system in the second and third row. This allows families to completely customise the seating arrangement to best suit their own unique needs.

Beyond traditional fore and aft movements that modulate legroom, one or all three of the second-row seats can be turned to face rearward, for a conference layout. The middle seat of the second row can also be folded into a small table with cup holders.

The adjustments are boundless with owners able to entirely remove single seats or rows to suit their needs. All six of the rear seats can even be removed for when owners need as much cargo carrying space as possible.

Adding to its family friendliness, ISOFIX points are available on second and third rows. There’s plenty of tech, with a 13.0-inch central touchscreen infotainment system, complete with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a wireless phone charger.

Adaptive cruise control, pre-collision assist with AEB and intersection assist, BLIS with rear cross traffic alert and BLIS assist, lane keeping, and a rear reversing camera all feature on both variants.

On the outside, its sculptural exterior design will appeal to families and high-end businesses alike, thanks to increased visual width front and rear. Independent rear suspension provides SUV-like comfort and refinement.

Drivers also benefit from the cab-forward design which provides excellent vision of the road, and both the Tourneo Active and Titanium X are fitted with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine, with 125kW and 390Nm delivered to the front wheels.

That’s paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Expanding the Tourneo’s cargo carrying capacity beyond the cabin, the vehicle can tow a braked trailer weight of up to 2,500kg as well.

Along with Frozen White, the Tourneo comes in Agate Black, Magnetic, Moondust Silver, Blue Metallic, and Grey Matter – with Artisan Red available exclusively on the Active variant.

Final specs will be announced closer to its local arrival in Q4 of this year, but we can confirm the Active will be priced at $65,990 and the Titanium X at $70,990 – both plus on-roads. You can find out more from your local Ford dealer.
