We all know that the Ford Transit range exudes durability and toughness. The new Ford Transit Connect is exactly that but with a selection of carefully engineered features to make it the best Connect that Ford has ever produced. New features include an ingenious load-through bulkhead and flexible front passenger seating to increase load-space.
The new Connect can feature a range of new technology like Intelligent Speed Assist that is designed to increase the control you have over your speed so you can concentrate on what’s on the road in front of you. With Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Assist built in, your Connect van will detect the road speed limit and automatically adjust your speed so you can take away the worry of exceeding the limit. Side Wind Stabilisation and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection provide an extra degree of safety with this iconic vehicle.
Now boasting SYNC 3, you can stay in control of your music, phone and navigation system, not forgetting the ability to stay connected with the important people in your life using the FordPass 2.0 App. The new Transit Connect can also be fitted with an optional modem that connects to the internet to produce a Wi-Fi hotspot, provide you with Live Traffic reports and it can even make an eCall.

We touched on the ingenious load-through bulkhead earlier on which helps you carry items that are up to 3m long in a short wheelbase and up to 3.4m in a long wheelbase. This reduces the need for you to load items on to the roof. You won’t always need to use this, the rear of the van has room to fit two Euro-pallets in a short wheelbase (L1) or a massive four 8’ x 4’ sheets of robust materials in the long wheelbase (L2).
Safety is the number one priority from Ford and that is why they have fitted Pre-Collision Assist which analyses the road ahead for other vehicles and pedestrians. It will then warn you of potential collisions and will even apply the brakes automatically if you haven’t had the time to do so. This works with speeds up to 50mph, giving you a comfortable and worry-free drive around urban areas as well as the majority of dual-carriageways.
