Whatever the needs of your business, you’ll have no trouble finding a Ford Transit Connect van to meet them. Highly functional and with innovative features to make cargo carrying a breeze, the Transit Connect van is ideal for those who are delivering products or transporting tools. Got extra crew members with you? The Double Cab-in-Van is the perfect solution. If your day-to-day work involves carrying passengers, the Transit Connect Kombi has everything you need: up to seven seats, class-leading space and an array of options for comfort and convenience.
Why be restricted by your van’s dedicated cargo space? Thanks to an ingenious load-through bulkhead, you can now carry items of up to 3m long in the L1 van model and up to 3.4m long in the L2 variant. A flip-up hatch in the bottom of the bulkhead means you can slide pipes, planks and other long items underneath the front passenger seat to transport them easily and safely. Plus, with room for two Euro-pallets in the cargo area, your working day can be more productive than ever.
It’s not just passenger cars that have improved when it comes to performance and efficiency. The Ford Transit Connect is available with a selection of 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engines, each of which provides the pulling power to get your cargo around effortlessly. And, with emissions as little as 103g/km CO2 (100PS model), you can enjoy a cleaner, greener driving. Opt for the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and you’ll experience the power of a 1.6-litre unit but without the emissions. Auto Start-Stop enhances the van’s efficiency even further, switching off the engine while you’re idling in traffic or at the lights. Simply depress the clutch (manual) or accelerator (automatic) to get going again.
When your jobs take you into the city, it’s reassuring to know there are active systems in your vehicle to protect you. Active City Stop provides support in slow-moving traffic or at speeds of up to 30mph by continually measuring your proximity to the vehicle in front. If an unexpected reduction in speed is detected, the system automatically applies the brakes. Other safety and drive assistance features available on the Ford Transit Connect include; Intelligent Speed Assist, Side Wind Stabilisation, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
Not only does the Ford Transit Connect boast car-like performance, selected models also sport the technology usually reserved for passenger vehicles. The SYNC 3 system enables you to access the audio, navigation and Bluetooth functions with voice commands, meaning you can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. And with the new Ford Pass Connect modem and FordPass Pro app, you can remotely lock & unlock your van, connect to in-vehicle WiFi, and more. You’ll even be able to turn your van into a mobile office thanks to 12V sockets, USB connectivity, and space for your laptop. Doing business on the go has never been easier.
