Ford Tourneo Custom Concept

This would usually be of no interest to me.
Some Euro delivery Van gets a redesign.
It this case, the next version of the popular Ford Transit.

But there has been rumors about the next Euro transit and our Econoline merging soon.
So this could very well end up being sold here as a replacement for the aging Econoline.
Finally giving Ford a modern offering in the US in this segment.

So far they are calling this a concept, but it is pretty much what the next Transit will look like.

Also, not to be confused with the much smaller "Transit Connect", sold in the us.

I don't understand why Toyota doesn't bring the Hiace van back to the US. It is the best van of this type in the world. They sell it everywhere including Mexico, but leave the US market out.

A ten dollar fine to the first person to pronounce it "Torino"!

I heard this is FWD? That'll make it a true successor to the FreeStar/WindStar, but with better reliability. I wonder what platform is being used. It can't be anything new since they just started their consolidation initiative.

no, this isn't the Econoline replacement, this is to compete more with the Renault Trafic or Volkswagen Caravelle, a bigger option then the S-Max. The RWD transit concept will debut later this year and our Econoline will be based on that.

I certainly hope the Econoline replacement is rear-drive. this would be a great Sprinter competitor. It is too bad that the American-style full-size van is going away.
