Your technologically-advanced mobile boardroom
Transit Connect is packed with sophisticated technologies that help keep you safe on the road, connected when mobile and which help make your working day easier. 12V sockets, USB & Bluetooth connectivity, laptop and file stowage space, as well as SYNC with Voice Control (including the latest SYNC2 system with 6” colour touchscreen) which gives you voice control over several key functions including phone, audio, climate control and navigation.
Every feature and technology in the Transit Connect is designed to maximise the efficiency of your business, and make driving as easy as possible. Advanced technologies can constantly assist you, with some responding automatically so you don’t have to worry about turning on headlights, or switching on wipers. In short, this is a van built to help you.
Sees the road signs you might miss
Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, the optional Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.
An advanced system to help you stay in your lane
The optional Lane-Keeping System uses a forward-looking camera to detect if you’re unintentionally drifting out of lane. Lane Keeping Alert then warns you by vibrating the steering wheel and displaying a visual warning. If you're slow to react or don’t respond, Lane Keeping Aid can provide steering torque assistance to help guide you safely back into the right lane. The technology is designed for multi-lane roads (like motorways), so will automatically deactivate at speeds below 43mph (65 km/h) or can be turned off manually.
Bollards, bins, low walls…The optional rear view camera shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console and activates automatically when you select reverse gear. The system also displays virtual guidelines to help you park into the smallest of spaces.
Transit Connect features a new range of advanced petrol and diesel engines. Each already meets strict Euro 6 Emissions legislation.A new 1.5 litre TDCi diesel engine offers three power outputs with improved fuel economy and lower emissions than the previous 1.6 litre engines. More power. Lower emissions. And cheaper running costs. What’s not to love?
A highly efficient 1.0L EcoBoost petrol engine
The 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine delivers 100PS and 170Nm of torque with a six-speed manual transmission. Combined with other fuel saving technologies such as Auto-Start-Stop, this award-winning engine gives you all the power you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 litre engine, but achieves CO2 emissions of just 129g/km and fuel economy of just 5.6l/100km.
Powerful new 1.5L Duratorq TDCi engines
If you prefer to run diesel, you have the choice of three highly efficient 1.5 litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engines (75PS, 100PS or 120PS), with manual or ‘Powershift’ automatic transmission options. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on the 100PS model start from as low as 3.8 L/100 km and 99g/km.
By combining smart, contemporary design and advanced technologies that serve your needs, Transit Connect is both an efficient commercial vehicle and a practical, comfortable office on wheels. Clever stowage and ergonomic design ensure that you’ll always feel comfortable going to and from work - and working - in the Transit Connect.
The latest hands-free technology
The optional Ford SYNC 2 with Voice Control and 6” colour Touchscreen provides intuitive control of several key functions including phone, audio, climate control and navigation via simple voice commands or touch. The system also enables you to play songs from a USB or MP3/iPod®, or when you’re streaming music from a Bluetooth®*-compatible phone, and can even read your incoming texts aloud.
Clear your windscreen quickly, with Quickclear
This clever, optional feature is designed to get you on the move quickly on frosty mornings. Just touch a button and the system can de-ice or defrost the screen in seconds, even if it’s below zero outside.
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 seat. Behind the bulkhead, there’s room for two Euro-pallets (in L1) or 8’ x 4’ sheets of material (in L2).
