New Ford Transit Connect


Cargo Van Volumes and Payloads
Maximize your workday in a Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van in one of two wheelbases:
  • Long wheelbase model has 128.6 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the front seats, or 149 cu. ft. of storage with the passenger seat folded. Easily load cargo up to 4-feet wide, 4-feet tall and 7-feet long. Maximum payload rating is 1,610 lbs.
  • Short wheelbase model has 103.9 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the front seats, or 124.3 cu. ft. with the passenger seat folded. Maximum payload rating is 1,470 lbs.

Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control
When you're approaching a curve on wet or dry pavement, standard electronic Curve Control can sense if you're going too fast, then slow you down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Once you're into the curve, g-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Standard Torque Vectoring Control enhances that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside curve.

Tested and Built Ford Tough
Commercial vehicles have to withstand the severity of every day on-the-job duty. That's why the Transit Connect was vigorously tested to 150,000 customer-equivalent miles.
  • Through computer-aided engineering, simulated models were put through extensive durability, crash, NVH (noise/vibration/harshness) and vehicle dynamic tests.
  • Doors and attached hardware underwent 250,000 opening/slamming cycles.
  • Models were torture-tested in the labs under sever temperature and humidity conditions.
  • Chassis components and underbody structure were tested at the proving grounds under extreme road conditions to help ensure structural integrity.

Unsurpassed Towing Capability
When the task at hand calls for towing, the Transit Connect comes through with an unsurpassed* towing capacity of up to 2,000 lbs. when equipped with the Trailer Tow Prep Package. Among the included features is Trailer Sway Control (TSC) linked to the technology of the standard AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control)

Modern Interior
Convenience-oriented design starts with ergonomic instruments and controls. Tachometer and trip computer are standard, plus cruise control and a tilting/telescoping steering wheel. Places to put things include a first row full-width overhead storage shelf, spacious glove box, and a front center console with cupholders and storage bin. Optional features include MyKey (customize vehicle settings such as speed and low-fuel warning), second-row aircraft-style overhead storage console (passenger wagon), and rear view camera available with select audio systems

Electronic Emergency Brake Assist and Hill Start Assist
The Transit Connect comes with two technologies you'll find reassuring:
  • When brake pedal pressure applied is insufficient to meet a hard stopping situation, Electronic Emergency Brake Assist automatically supplies the amount of force needed to reduce the stopping distance.
  • When you're stopped on an incline, Hill Start Assist automatically holds the brake to help prevent backward roll while you're going from brake pedal to the accelerator. This is especially helpful when hauling a heavy load.
