Are you looking for a versatile, tough work van for your business in the Bradley and Peotone area? The 2016 Ford Transit Connect is designed for work! You can choose from the van for transporting cargo or the wagon for transporting passengers, as well as having your choice of wheelbase, interior configuration, and plenty of features for safety and connectivity. Check it out today at Terry's Ford.
The Transit Connect Van is designed to transport goods. You can have your choice of a short wheelbase or a long wheelbase. The short wheelbase configuration has an impressive 104 cubic feet of cargo space with all two seats occupied, while the passenger seat folds flat for a total of 124 cubic feet of cargo space. The long wheelbase is perfect for transporting longer goods or just more of them--you'll get 128.6 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats occupied, and 149 cubic feet of space when the front seat is folded flat.
The dual sliding doors come with the long wheelbase, making it easier to unload the van with six more inches in width and two more inches in opening height than the next best competitor. You can also choose between rear cargo doors or a liftgate, depending on your needs.
The Transit Connect Wagon is built to transport people. The short wheelbase version can transport up to five, with 77 cubic feet of storage capacity when the rear seats are folded down. The long wheelbase is able to transport up to seven people, or six if you're opting for the fold-flat bucket seats. When the seats are folded down, you'll get 104 cubic feet of storage capacity.
When you choose the long wheelbase, you'll get the option of three different trim levels for your passengers' comfort. You can choose from vinyl, leather, or premium cloth upholstery. The Titanium trim adds standard heated front seats, as well as dual-zone automatic climate control. It also comes with an overhead storage shelf and front grab handles so it's easier for your passengers to keep their gear in place when exiting or entering.
The 2016 Transit Connect has plenty of available feature to make you and your business run better. The Blind Spot Information system with cross-traffic alert uses a radar array to detect vehicles or obstacles in your blind spot or to the side and back of your vehicle, and helps you avoid them. The rear view camera gives you a line of sight into the back of your vehicle, along with guidelines, so you can align with a trailer or just park in a tight spot. You can also choose forward and reverse sensing systems that warn you about objects directly behind or ahead of your vehicle.
The Ford Sync system lets you place hands-free calls with just the push of a button as well as voice commands. You'll be able to use voice commands to select your music as well, and you'll be able to connect your smartphone and apps to the Sync system to help you get about your day. 911 assist is standard, with the ability to contact emergency services even if your phone isn't working. If you upgrade to the MyFord Touch SYNC system, you'll get apps like real-time navigation and streaming satellite radio.
The Transit Connect comes with a choice of two engines. The base engine is a 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine, producing 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. It's paired with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, which gets 28 mpg highway. It's perfect for everyday truck use and light towing, and can run on E85 fuel. You can also fit this engine with a CNG/propane capability. Alternately, you can choose the 1.6L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine. This engine produces 178 hp and 184 lbft of torque, getting 29 mpg highway.
The Transit Connect has a maximum payload of up to 1,620 lbs., along with an impressive towing capacity of 2,000 lbs--that's the highest capacity of any small van in the market today! You'll get performance features such as electronic roll stability control with AdvanceTrak, and features like power-assisted steering for greater control, as well as torque vectoring control for taking corners easily and safely.
