2015 Ford Transit Connect

Ford's 2015 Transit Connect provides cost-conscious commercial fleets and small business owners an efficient and versatile alternative to competitors' cargo vans in an expanding commercial vehicle market.

Ford Transit Connect is nimble and easy to park, and offers an efficient four-cylinder engine.

'Transit Connect is engineered with North American business owners top of mind,' said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. 'This cargo hauler offers entrepreneurs and fleet owners a unique combination of efficiency, cargo capacity and maneuverability.'

2015 Ford Transit ConnectWith global commercial vehicle sales expected to grow by 1.9 million over the next several years, to 19.3 million units annually by 2017, Transit Connect represents a major opportunity. Ford is leveraging its One Ford product strategy to meet the growing needs of Transit Connect customers in 66 global markets, providing a compact van that is Built Ford Tough, is even more fuel efficient and capable, and brings a greater choice of body styles.

Transit Connect is joined by the all-new 2015 Ford Transit full-size van and wagon, which will provide professional tradesmen and commercial fleet customers with an array of body styles and configurations tailored to their work needs, along with low cost of operation.

To meet the needs of customers in North America, Transit Connect is offered in two wheelbase lengths and in XL and XLT series levels. Transit Connect can handle as much as 1,600 pounds of payload and is approved to tow as much as 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.

The 2.5-liter engine can be specified with a compressed natural gas/liquid propane gas preparation package, enabling convenient conversion by Ford-certified upfit specialists to run on CNG or LPG.
