Crowned 'International Van of the Year' for 2014, the all-new Ford Transit Connect is one of the most practical and reliable vans on the road. Its thorough build helps the vehicle stand up to heavy daily use, and the same can be said for its hard-working engines.
With a generous load space of up to 3.6m 3, you can have confidence in the ability of the Transit Connect to take your business wherever it needs to go with ultimate ease. Tough and versatile, the Transit Connect features a unique loadthrough bulkhead, which enables you to stow long objects such as pipes and ladders up to 3.4m long. There are two wheelbases available - the L1 short wheelbase and L2 long wheelbase - as well as a double-cab-in-van and the Kombi which seats up to seven. In the standard van shape, you can also choose a two or three seat capacity to suit your passenger carrying needs.
The Ford Transit Connect isn't just remarkably flexible – it also packs a punch under the bonnet thanks to a choice of advanced petrol or diesel engines utilising Ford's next-generation efficiency technology. The petrol unit is a gutsy 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine, delivering 170Nm of torque. For slightly more power, choose from a 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine with varying power ratings. All engines deliver a clean and economical drive, and the ECOnetic trim has been specifically designed to build on this strength.
The Ford Transit Connect is available in a choice of three trims offering slightly different levels of specification. The baseline Transit Connect features all of Ford's acclaimed features built in as
standard, while the ECOnetic adds auto start/stop, Active Grille Shutter, Battery Management System and Smart Regenerative Charging. The top-end Trend furthers this with a heated windshield, front fog lamps, Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance and more.
