New Transit Connect
With a sophisticated new look, comprehensively updated interior, and more advanced technology than ever before, New Transit Connect has evolved.
The trademark Transit toughness, durability and functionality still remain, in features including an ingenious load-through bulkhead and flexible front passenger seating. With short and long wheelbase options providing load volumes up to 3.6m³ (VDA), payload capacity ranging from 579 – 865kg, and bodystyles including van and double-cab-in-van. But this is now an exceptionally sophisticated van equipped with valuable drive-assist technologies many of which are not available in cars today. Others help keep drivers connected, hands-free; to help them control and monitor their speed; and even to help protect pedestrians in their path.
Technology has also improved fuel economy and lowered emissions.
What do you want from your van?
With various body styles (Van and Double-Cab-in-Van), seating for two to seven people, two body lengths, and payload options up to 903kg, you’re sure to find a Transit Connect that fits your needs perfectly.
You also have a comprehensive choice of specification levels in each bodystyle, plus many equipment options that enable you to further customise your vehicle.
And if you need something more specialised, our Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) group can provide everything from unique body colours to bespoke loading systems.
Helping to keep you inside the speed limit
The New Transit Connect now comes with Intelligent Speed Assist, designed to enhance your speed control and enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, the Traffic Sign Recognition camera automatically detects the current speed limit (when activated), then the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit. (option)
SYNC 3. For an effortless hands-free experience
Ford SYNC 3 is an advanced system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system. Choose either voice commands or the 6” colour touchscreen with pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive navigation. Live Traffic can help you avoid the jams. You can even call up a list of local restaurants simply by saying “I’m hungry”. (option)
Comfort & Convenience
Space for long items with a load-through bulkhead
Available on all van versions with a dual front passenger seat, an 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). The bulkhead has a flip-up hatch at the bottom, which you can 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).
Clear your windscreen quickly, with Quickclear
This clever feature is designed to get you on the move quickly on frosty mornings. Just touch a button and ultra-thin filaments can superheat to de-ice, de-fog and de-mist your windscreen as well as help defrost the wipers. Standard on Trend and Limited series.
Performance & Efficiency
An engine that works as hard as you do
The state-of-the-art 75 PS, 100 PS and 120 PS Ford diesel engines are highly advanced, turbo-charged powertrains that deliver measurably improved efficiency, performance and refinement. The new engines can improve fuel efficiency, are more responsive and also quieter than ever before.
A sophisticated new 8-speed automatic transmission
The New Transit Connect features an advanced new automatic transmission. With improved acceleration and super-smooth gear changes, it’s engineered from the ground up to enhance your driving experience, optimise fuel efficiency, and maximise the performance of the van.
Safety & Security
A system that can help protect pedestrians
Pre-Collision Assist detects vehicles and pedestrians in the road ahead. It can even detect pedestrians that may be about to cross the vehicle’s path. The system warns you if it detects a potential collision and if you don’t respond it will automatically apply the brakes. This technology is designed to help reduce the severity of accidents, or help avoid them altogether, and functions at speeds of up to 50mph (80kmh). (option)
Enhanced stability in difficult driving conditions
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when it’s losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.
Side Wind Stabilisation
Helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control system to sense when the vehicle is being affected by crosswinds.
