2012 Ford van tourneo light duty

Have just seen it at the Geneva Car show, next van generation:

















I asked about 4x4, it may come.
Good news planned in 2013 there will be a heavy duty version, more "truck looking" remember it is European definition... It should have a ladder frame and will be available in 4x4.

Re: 2012 Ford van tourneo light duty

I found this article with a picture of the larger version of the Transit van. The article said it is unibody though, not body on frame.



http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2011 ... ansit.html

Found another article that says the motor will be twin turbo V-6. A little more HP than the V-10, but almost identical torque.

<<<<<<
We love ourselves some Ford Transit Connect. The funky-looking little vanlet is so endearingly functional that we're happy to forgive its lackluster drivetrain and questionable interior. Now it appears that Ford aims to address at least one of these ails with its big brother, the upcoming larger Transit Van.

Ford has announced that buyers of the van that will eventually replace the aged Econoline in America will be able to order Ford's twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that puts power to the Transit's rear wheels. Ford hasn't released any specifics on power output or fuel economy just yet, but the same engine is good for a heavenly 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque when bolted to the F-150 where it accounts for 40 percent of sales.

Even in that heavier chassis, the EcoBoost V6 returns 18 mpg combined compared to 23 mpg combined for the smaller Transit Connect Van with its 136-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Ford also hasn't said what we can expect in terms of tow rating or gross vehicle weight, though those are certain to keep pace with the current E-Series van as a result of the staggering amount of torque available from the turbocharged, direct-injection Ecoboost V6.
