What Are You Looking For?


Transit Connect Van Dimensions

The Transit Connect Van, made for transporting large amounts of cargo, comes with your choice of a short or a long wheelbase. The short wheelbase van has an impressive 104 cubic feet of cargo space behind the two front seats, or fold down the passenger seat for a total of 124 cubic feet of cargo space. The long wheelbase is perfect for transporting longer objects or additional items; you'll get 128.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the two front seats, or 149 cubic feet with the passenger seats folded.

Dual sliding doors on the long wheelbase are six inches wider and two inches taller than the competition, giving you more space to put gear in the van. Other options include a liftgate or swing-out rear cargo doors to best fit your needs.



Transit Connect Wagon Dimensions

The Transit Connect Wagon is made for transporting people as well as cargo. The short wheelbase van can transport up to five people, with 77 cubic feet of storage capacity with the rear seats folded. The long wheelbase van can transport six passengers and the driver in the fold-flat bucket seat model. With the passenger seats folded, it boasts an impressive 104 cubic feet of storage space. The long wheelbase model offers three different trim levels for the comfort of your passengers. You can choose vinyl, leather, or premium cloth upholstery, while the Titanium trim features standard heated front seats and dual-zone automatic temperature control. You'll get an overhead storage shelf and front grab handles so your passengers can keep their gear secure when entering or exiting.



Technology and Connectivity

The 2016 Transit Connect has many available technologies to make you and your business run better. You can opt for a Blind Spot Information System with a cross-traffic alert that uses a radar to detect vehicles in your blind spot or behind your vehicle, and helps you avoid them. The rear view camera lets you see behind your Transit Connect when you're backing up to better align with a trailer or park in a tight spot. You can also opt for forward and reverse sensing systems to warn you of objects directly in front of or behind your vehicle when navigating tight spots. 

The Ford Sync system lets you place hands-free calls using the push of a button or voice commands, lets you listen to your music using only voice-activated search commands, and lets you connect to your smartphone or an app suite to use apps you need to get about your day. You'll also get 911 assist for no charge, allowing you to call for help if your phone can't. Upgrade to MyFord Touch SYNC, and you'll get apps like real-time navigation and satellite radio.



Power and Performance

The Transit Connect comes with a choice of engines. You can choose the base 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine, which produces 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, getting 28 mpg highway. This engine is great for everyday truck use and light towing, and can be fitted with a CNG/propane engine, or fill up with E85 fuel on the standard model. You can also choose the 1.6L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine, which produces 178 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses the same transmission as the standard model, getting 29 mpg highway.

The Transit Connect has a maximum payload of up to 1,620 lbs, and a towing capacity of an impressive 2,000 lbs, the highest towing capacity of any small van in the market today. You'll get performance features like electronic roll stability control with AdvanceTrak, as well as power-assisted steering for greater control, and torque vectoring control for taking corners with ease and safety.
