Ford Transit Connect Overview
A van built to take on tough work, with eye-catching good looks. This accurately describes the Ford Transit Connect range of vans & double cab in vans. Add to this the latest fuel efficient engines, car-like comfort, smart technology and safety features that give the Connect range a real competitive edge.
With the option of the dual passenger seat, (FOC option Trend & Limited) Transit Connect vans have the capability of carrying two passengers and the driver. And when the dual seat is not carrying passengers the centre seat folds down to create a writing surface or flips up to reveal a very convenient storage box to keep your belongings out of sight. And when used in conjunction with the Bluetooth functionality for mobile phones and devices, you have a mini office in your van!
Do you need some load carrying space you would expect with a van, but you want to carry more passengers to the job? If so, look no further. The Ford Transit Connect Double Cab in Van is a great combination of passenger carrying and load space with a choice of two wheelbases (L1 & L2) and the capability to carry up to 5 passengers with the cargo safely stored behind the moveable bulkhead.
The Connect van is an ideal size for tradesmen, delivery drivers and people who have jobs or hobbies that require a lot of equipment but don’t need a large van. A van from the Transit range large enough to accommodate your needs, but small enough for city roads and smaller drives.

Ford Connect boasts a range of features built in as standard that provide both comfort and convenience. Small items such as the DAB Radio, Bluetooth, dual cup holders, remote central double locking and the Ford Easy-Fuel capless re-fuelling system. Small items indeed, but very important if you are the driver.
As you progress up the New Transit Connect range additional features become part of the package. Ford SYNC & dual seats (van only) options are standard from Trend series upwards, see the brochure and compare the series features side by side to help choose your ideal specification.

If you are looking for a petrol engine, the 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine is a good place to start. It’s been awarded International Engine of the Year and with good reason. Or maybe you are looking more closely at fuel efficiency, Transit Connect 1.5 Ecoblue Diesel engine offers three power outputs, 75ps, 100ps and 120ps (standard in Limited series). Check out the Connect Econetic series with 62 mph fixed speed limiter and auto start-stop to gain the best CO2 from the Connect range.
If you prefer to drive automatics rather than manual you may want to try the New 8 Speed Automtic transmission available on some models.
