Ford Tourneo Concept Announced For Geneva Debut

Ford Tourneo 1 at Ford Tourneo Concept Announced For Geneva Debut

Ford Tourneo is one of the concept cars Ford will be showing at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Although its name kinda resembles the legendary Gran Torino, it’s actually a van. The Tourneo previews the next generation Ford Transit.

The car features Ford’s Kinetic Design language, which until now has only been used for passenger cars. It’s the first commercial vehicles Ford has made with the signature grille and headlight.

The Tourneo is also very clever, and features an all-new interior design with driver-focused cockpit, and a luxurious, fully trimmed cabin which has the ambience and high-quality materials of a modern multi-seat saloon car. By mixing the qualities of a sedan with practicality of a van, Ford is introducing new standards to this class.
