New 2016 Ford  Transit Connect at Milnes Ford for Imlay City, MI

The 2016 Ford Transit Connect provides cost-conscious commercial fleets and small business owners an efficient and versatile alternative to competitor cargo vans. To meet the needs of consumers in North America, Transit Connect is offered in many different configurations including two wheelbase lengths and in XL and XLT series levels. It can also handle as much as 1,620 pounds of payload and is approved to tow as much as 2,000 pounds. With a punchy and efficient turbocharged engine; two body lengths to choose from; and customizable cargo area; the Connect Transit is less expensive and more involving to drive than regular minivans. It contains all the features of a minivan, with the ability to be used as a work vehicle.

Under the Transit Connect's Hood

The EPA's estimated fuel economy for the cargo van with the 2.5-liter engine is 23 mpg combined. If you opt for the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine you will find yourself with an estimated 25 mpg combined with both the cargo van and the wagon versions. The 2016 Transit Connect also offers an available 1.6L EcoBoost I-4 gas engine with an EPA-estimated rating of 29 mpg hwy, with an unsurpassed 178 horsepower. The E85 flex-fuel is standard with the 2.5-liter engine. Flex-fuel is engineered to run on 85% ethanol with the remainder being unleaded gasoline. Ethanol burns cleaner than traditional unleaded fuel, and is much more renewable. 

Design of Ford  Transit Connect

The Transit features enough room for the entire family with comfortable seating for either 5 or 7 people depending on which wheelbase you select. If it is cargo you're looking to bring with you, the shorter-wheelbase cargo van offers 103.9 cubic feet behind the front seats, while the long-wheelbase version's larger cargo manages to hold up to 128.6 cubic feet. EPAS uses an electric motor instead of a hydraulic pump. This results in control that can be precisely programmed to enable technologies that help steering control, such as pull-drift compensation and active nibble control, which helps contribute to fuel efficiency. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control provides enhanced control in slick conditions such as snow, rain or even on gravel roads. RSC provides enhanced side-slip control and electronic rollover stability for the vehicle. It utilizes gyroscopic sensors to monitor vehicle roll motion and rate of turning in milliseconds. Transit Connect also offers unexpected features in a modern package. This contemporary van is available with or without second-row seating, and brings optional technology like a rearview camera, 6.5-inch touch screen display with navigation, and Ford's mobile communication and entertainment system.
