Ford Europe is taking some time to tell folks that the Ford Transit Custom Nugget Camper will keep you connected on the road. That means that owners of the camper can go on vacation and still keep up with everything going on in their lives and the world; that is, assuming your campground is in an area with mobile network access. In some rural camps, there is no service.
Ford is reminding the Transit Custom Nugget camper not only offers a place for sleeping, cooking, and living; it also has an integrated modem that creates a WiFi hotspot with high-speed Internet connectivity for up to ten devices. The camper van is popular in Germany, according to Ford, and the automaker notes that it is being introduced across European markets with new features to make it more comfortable. The WiFi hotspot comes as part of a package that enhances the latest Ford Transit Custom Nugget.
Internet connectivity can be used for working on the road, streaming TV shows, or watching movies. Ford also notes that the new version has an upgraded Ford 2.0 EcoBlue diesel engine that offers a more powerful 185 PS variant with the 130 PS unit still available. The engine can be paired up with an automatic or manual transmission.
Other Nugget features include driver-assist technologies like Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Aid, Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Tow, and Active Park Assist. The latter feature helps to steer the Ford Transit Custom Nugget in and out of parallel and perpendicular parking spaces with the driver controlling acceleration and braking. The camper is being introduced to new European markets, including Austria, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, and the U.K. We’d still like to see the Nugget come to the States.
