There’s more than meets the eye with the Ford Transit Connect. It’s smarter, stronger and possesses a generous load space all while retaining its durability and functionality hallmark. The interior features a sophisticated and redesigned space for all your business needs alongside an abundance of technological features. The exterior and load space were built for tough work and long days.
The dynamic exterior design has been designed to improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency while the front headlamps provide greater visibility. Striking 16” alloy wheels and bold front grille create a fierce stance on any road while the contemporary styling overall creates a van you will feel proud to park outside your home at the end of the day. The ingenious load-through bulkhead lets you carry items up to 3m long in a short wheelbase van (L1) and up to 3.4m in a long wheel-base model (L2) and is available on all van versions with a dual front passenger seat. The bulkhead has a flip-up hatch at the bottom allowing you to slide long items through and into a storage area beneath the front passenger seats. Behind the bulkhead, there’s room for two Euro-pallets (in L1) or up to four 8’ x 4’ sheets of material (in L2) all while the rubber flooring helps to keep the cab clear and protects the load floor from daily working life.
The interior has been finished with excellent trim and fabric to create a light and airy feel. The sophisticated 1-tonne van has every control and storage compartment close at hand making it both practical and comfortable. The model features the latest driver assist technologies such as Ford SYNC 3 which enables you to stay connected and have the ability to control your phone, music and navigation system. What’s more, you can navigate the SYNC 3 system by using voice commands or by pinch-and-swipe gestures on the 6” colour touchscreen. The optional new FordPass Connect modem brings you a range of invaluable features such as Live Traffic, Wi-Fi hotspot and eCall. Download the FordPass App on your smartphone and you can access even more FordPass Connect features. For example, remote locking & unlocking, remote starting (auto transmission only), vehicle location, and more.
The Transit Connect also comes with optional Intelligent Speed Assist that is designed to enhance your speed control while Traffic Sign Recognition automatically detects the current speed limit and adjusts your speed accordingly. That’s not all; the Pre-Collision Assist detects vehicles and pedestrians in the road ahead and automatically responds and applies the brakes overall reducing the severity of accidents or helping to avoid them altogether.
