Ford's latest concept is a clear preview of their next-generation global full-size van.
Set to make its debut early next month at the Geneva Motor Show, Ford's all-new Tourneo Custom Concept is meant to "showcase a dramatic new look and preview introduction of an all-new family of one-ton people movers and commercial vehicles."The primary market will be Europe and Asia, however, the Ford Transit will remain a separate model.
