Transit Connect Info

2014 Ford Transit Connect

 

Fits perfectly into your business plan.

Ford Transit Connect offers the comfort and efficiency of a car — but that’s where the car-like similarities end. Transit Connect is a ruggedly built truck, certified to Ford Light Commercial Vehicle Durability Standards, providing a maximum payload of 1,600 lbs. and up to 129.6 cu. ft. of cargo space* (Van).

 

Designed Compact, Engineered Tough

Transit Connect is designed to deliver years of service and to be tough enough to withstand the workday rigors you put it through. In fact, it is certified to Ford Light Commercial Vehicle Durability Standards, with testing of 150,000 customer-equivalent miles.

 

Best-in-Class Fuel Efficiency

In addition to best-in-class fuel efficiency,* the Transit Connect can travel up to 354 miles on a single tank of gas.** That could mean fewer trips to the gas pump and more time where it really counts — on the job.

 

Responsive 2.0L Duratec® I-4 Engine

The 2.0L Duratec 16-valve I-4 engine in the Transit Connect is as responsive as it is efficient. It generates 136 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque, while delivering best-in-class fuel efficiency.*

 

4-speed Automatic Overdrive Transmission

The 2.0L Duratec® I-4 is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission with a 3.96:1 final drive ratio. It’s engineered to handle everyday commercial use and to provide the low-end torque needed for hauling heavy loads.

Excellent Maneuverability

In addition to its compact size, the Transit Connect is highly maneuverable, thanks to a 39- ft. curb-to-curb turning diameter.

Exterior

 

Capable and versatile.

Call it the compact cargo van that’s big on capability. The Transit Connect can maneuver tight city streets, including letting you parallel park with relative ease. To make loading and unloading cargo easier, the Transit Connect features a low-load height and your choice of two rear cargo-door angles. Add a large side panel that lets you prominently display your company name and graphics, and the Transit Connect is the ideal compact cargo van.

Impressive Payload

Though it weighs just 3,360 lbs., it has a maximum payload of 1,600 lbs. (Van).

Low Loading Height

The Transit Connect is designed with a low load height (less than 2 feet) to make loading and unloading cargo as easy as possible.

Display Your Company Name

There’s plenty of space on the large side panels to proudly display the name of your company with colorful, effective graphics. Choose from professionally designed templates and installed graphics or have your own design created.

Side and Rear Cargo-door Glass

The Transit Connect Van offers several privacy glass options:
• No side or rear cargo-door glass
• Rear cargo-door glass only (shown)
• 2nd-row passenger-side glass only
• 2nd-row and rear cargo-door glass

Rear Cargo-door Swing Angles

The rear cargo doors come with a standard 180° swing angle.* If you need more working clearance, available doors on articulated hinges (shown) swing up to 255°.

Dual Sliding Doors

To help provide easy loading and unloading from the driver or passenger side, the Transit Connect features dual sliding doors.

Fog Lamps

To help you operate in less-than-favorable conditions, fog lamps are standard on the Transit Connect Wagon.

Interior

 

A very accommodating interior.

With a maximum payload of 1,600 lbs. (Van), the Transit Connect can easily handle your cargo needs.* You can customize the interior, thanks to a variety of upfit options. If you need to move people, the Transit Connect Wagon can seat up to five passengers, while providing storage behind the second-row seat. Whether it’s people or cargo, the Transit Connect is very accommodating.

Cargo space

The Transit Connect Van features 129.6 cu. ft. of cargo space and can accommodate items up to 6’ long, 4’ wide and nearly 5’ tall. Transport large, flat-sided loads on the flat load floor.

Payload

With a maximum payload of 1,600 lbs. (Van) and a spacious cargo area, the ruggedly built Transit Connect is the ideal work vehicle.

Customizable Cargo Area

Whether you’re carrying tools or cargo, the Transit Connect can be configured for different work applications.* You can equip it with everything from rooftop ladder racks, bulkheads, literature holders and storage cabinets to dividers, double floors, drawers, cargo management packages and more. For your convenience, there’s also a front overhead storage shelf with retaining net for items you need to keep within reach, plus map pockets in the front-door trim panel pockets. The XLT Premium Wagon also includes rear cargo-door pocket storage.

Rear Cargo-door Pocket Storage

The XLT Premium Wagon features a clever rear cargo-door pocket storage area for smaller items. A retaining net safely secures the contents.

Seating for Up to 5

With the 60/40 folding 2nd-row seat, the Transit Connect Wagon can transport 5 passengers, while still providing 78.4 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the 2nd-row. If you need more space, flip and fold both portions of the seat and increase the total cargo space to 118.7 cu. ft. And as with the Transit Connect Van, the Wagon features a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat with an armrest, and a 4-way adjustable passenger’s seat.

Sound System

All Transit Connect models include an AM/FM stereo with an audio input jack that lets you play music from your MP3 player over the sound system. A single-disc CD player is included in Transit Connect XLT Van and Wagon models and available on XL Vans.

Technology

 

Elevating your driving experience.

 

Transit Connect has standard and available technology features that can help make your drive more convenient. The available rear view camera lets you see objects behind your vehicle, while the available Reverse Sensing System provides an audible alert as you near objects behind you. With available SYNC® you can stay in touch with hands-free calling, voice-control your music through an MP3 player, even have incoming text messages read aloud to you146. And to help you stay in control, all Transit Connect models feature AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™

Rear View Camera

The available rear view camera provides a video image on the interior rearview mirror of the area behind your vehicle as you’re slowly backing up. Included are visual guides that help when backing up. The Rear View Camera operates only when the gear shift selector is in Reverse.

Reverse Sensing System

Using innovative ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper, the available Reverse Sensing System audibly alerts you to certain objects located directly behind the Transit Connect when backing up at slow speeds. The closer you get to an object, the faster the beeps.

Voice-activated SYNC®

SYNC is all about staying in touch and staying entertained. All with simple voice commands.
• With hands-free calling, you’ll never miss a phone call when you’re behind the wheel.
• Browse and play your music, podcasts and audiobooks with simple voice commands.
• Bluetooth® audio lets you wirelessly control your entertainment with voice commands128.
• Have incoming text messages read aloud to you.

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®)

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®), standard on all Transit Connect Van and Wagon models, uses a combination of reduced engine power and selective wheel braking to help the driver maintain control39. Corner too quickly or swerve to avoid an object and RSC® will automatically use its gyroscopic sensors to measure vehicle roll and turning rates, then apply the proper response to help keep your vehicle under control.

Safety features

To alert you when vehicle tire pressure is low, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System displays a warning in the instrument panel.* And while we hope you never have to use them, Transit Connect features front and side-impact airbags for the driver and front passenger.
