2016 Ford Transit Connect

2016 Ford Transit Connect
2016 Transit ConnectThe 2016 Ford Transit Connect provides cost-conscious commercial fleets and small business owners an efficient and versatile alternative to competitor cargo vans in an expanding commercial vehicle market.

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 1,620 pounds of payload and is approved to tow as much as 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Powertrain choices2016 Ford Transit Connect
Customers in North America can choose between two four-cylinder engines – each geared for around-town responsiveness and low-rpm highway cruising. The standard offering is the 2.5-liter Duratec® that delivered an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway when tested for 2015, while the available 1.6-liter EcoBoost® returned an EPA-estimated 30 mpg. Both engines come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

The 2.5-liter engine can be ordered with a CNG/propane gaseous engine prep package – enabling convenient conversion by Ford-certified upfit specialists to run on CNG or propane.

The E85 flex-fuel system will be standard equipment on 2016 Transit Connect with the 2.5-liter engine destined for non-California emissions states – giving customers more choices. Flex-fuel Transit Connect is engineered to run on E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline), unleaded gasoline or any blend of the two. Ethanol burns cleaner and is more renewable than conventional fuels.

Transit Connect offers unexpected features in a stylish, high-value package. This contemporary van is available with or without second-row seating, and brings useful options like a rearview camera, 6.5-inch touch screen display with navigation, and SYNC® with MyFord Touch® – Ford's voice-activated mobile communications and entertainment system.

Transit Connect delivers substantial capability on a compact overall footprint with urban-friendly maneuverability. It is ideal for small business proprietors and fleet administrators aiming to right-size vehicles to specific duties, and is a popular choice for tradesmen for its combination of handling ease and cargo capacity.

Commercial-strength DNA

The work ethic behind Transit Connect is reflected in this clever vehicle's cargo-carrying and payload capabilities, as well as its high-strength body – engineered to rigorous global commercial vehicle durability standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com)
All Transit Connect models feature first-row frontal and side airbags, first-row side curtain airbags and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Ford's award-winning MyKey® programmable ignition key – enabling owners and fleet administrators to activate an alarm when preset speed and audio volume are exceeded – is standard for Transit Connect XLT.

Multiple-vehicle fleets can specify Transit Connect with available Ford Telematics™, powered by Telogis®. The system enables a centralized logistics leader to simultaneously monitor several vehicles in real time – for location, speed and excess idle duration – helping to track productivity and efficiency.
