2016 Ford Transit Connect
When you are looking to carry people, cargo, tools, or a combination of the three, but you don't have the room for full-size vehicles, there's no greater fit than the 2016 Ford Transit Connect. Part of Ford's fleet of vehicles that have helped the brand to become Canada's Best-Selling Automotive Brand Seven Years in a Row (2009-2015), the Transit Connect comes in five different trim levels: XL Van, XL Wagon, XLT Van, XLT Wagon, and Titanium Wagon.
Versatility to Handle Whatever Your Task May Be
Squared off and broad-sided, the 2016 Ford Transit Connect makes the most of its small footprint. It features two front doors, plus a single sliding door on the Van models and dual sliding doors on the Wagon models. A second sliding door on Van models is available, if you don't need the wall space for hooks or equipment. Rear cargo doors swing out 180-degrees, so you can make the most of the available cargo space. Available heated mirrors can cut down on snow and ice build-up and provide for improved visibility. Roof racks and carriers enhance the carrying capacity and allow you to haul oversized gear that just won't fit even in the massive cargo bay. Wagon models also offer privacy glass, to keep peering eyes from looking in and provide privacy for your passengers.
Flexible interior space means the 2016 Ford Transit Connect works just as well in the seven-passenger Wagon format as it does in the two-passenger Van models. Vinyl seating surfaces are the standard, easy to clean and durable, with cloth available. Leather seating is available in the Titanium Wagon. There is 1,050 millimeters or more of headroom throughout the cabin, along with over 1,400 millimeters of shoulder space in all seats, so every passenger has plenty of room. On top of that, the Wagon features 44 litres of cargo space behind the rear seat, while the cavernous Van models have room for up to 3,642 litres of tools, racks, equipment, and more. Ford SYNC with an AM/FM/CD audio system provides your tunes, and SiriusXM capabilities can be added. Ford also offers the MyFord Touch system, featuring a multifunctional colour LCD touch screen at the top of the centre console along with a navigation system.
Efficiency and Reliability Under the Hood
With low fuel usage and enough power to haul full loads of passengers or cargo, the 2016 Ford Transit Connect is primed to be the backbone of any fleet or business. The six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission helps control efficient engines, providing the Transit Connect fuel efficiency comparable to many mid-sized sedans, but with much more hauling capabilities. The Transit Connect is rated to tow up to 907 kilograms, with a payload capacity of up to 79 kilograms.
