Once again Ford over-delivers with unprecedented versatility for the unique driver in you. From flexibility and roominess to power and efficiency, the brand new 2014 Transit Connectboasts an impressive combination of technology, capability, and amenity to suit all of your transportation needs. Standing in a class all of its own, the Ford Transit Connect is imbued with a forward-thinking philosophy in Kinetic Design: “Energy in motion.” This design language employs a lower trapezoidal grille to compliment two elongated headlights—a signature of Ford’s production excellence. Taking it a step further, this vehicle enriches Ford’s ONE Ford doctrine of having “ONE Team, ONE Plan and ONE Goal for an exciting, viable Ford that delivers profitable growth for all.” Following this ideology, the Ford of Europe product development team spearheaded the Transit Connect program with a concerted insistence, in every detail, on efficient fuel consumption and cargo space in mind.
Standard-equipped with a 2.5L Duratec I-4 engine, the 2014 Transit Connect supersedes those of years past with fine-tuned, performance-driven power and the ability to haul heavy loads due to its SelectShift six-speed automatic transmission. For power conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquid propane gas (LPG), a CNG/LPG Gaseous Engine Prep Package is available for most models. This 2.5L Duratec I-4 engine with the CNG/LPG package can be upgraded to bi-fuel capability, enabling it to run on either compressed natural gas, liquid propane gas, or unleaded gasoline. Also available is Ford’s patented 1.6L EcoBoost engine, delivering efficiency when you want it and power when you need it.
For those individuals who require heavy passenger volume, or businesses looking for the enhanced cargo-hauling ability of a full-size van, the Transit Connect offers an array of configuration options to fulfill a variety of needs: 550 cubic feet of space for cargo or enough space to carry 15 passengers when equipped properly. Along with offering the most customization solutions on the market, including several wheelbase options, engines, and optional features, the 2014 Transit Connect also achieves class-leading fuel efficiency. It truly is a utility vehicle that can be whatever you need it to be.
