2014 Ford Transit Connect Brantford
2014 Ford Transit Connect Review
For Sale @ Northway Ford Brantford (between Hamilton & Cambridge, near Paris)
The 2014 Ford Transit Connect is a completely new design with a better engine, new looks, new refinement and a capability that has seen the transit as Europe's best-selling commercial vehicle year on year for over a decade.
The Ford Transit Connect is a European model brought over to North America as part of Ford's "One Ford" global brand strategy in 2010. It's a light commercial van that comes either as pure cargo space or as a wagon that can carry passengers.
The Transit Connect is a smaller van than the Transit, making it ideal for smaller businesses or inner city ventures. It's available in two wheelbase lengths. Both offer decent cargo carrying capacity for a very reasonable price. The standard wheelbase offers 105 cu.ft of cargo space, with the long-wheelbase offering 130 cu.ft.
The two lengths also offer different passenger carrying options for the Wagon too.
The new styling has brought the 2014 Ford Transit Connect right up to date. You can clearly see the Ford theme, with those angled headlights, large lower grille and big Blue Oval front and center. The large angled windshield offers great visibility, while the high roof and slab sides maximize available cargo space within. Two split doors at the rear allow for easy access.
Inside the Transit, you will have everything from the very basic utilitarian to the almost luxurious. The interior has been redesigned too and is now more car-like than ever. The two seats are comfortable, the driver's seat adjustable and the instruments are all clear and easy to read. It's everything you need from a van.
There are two engine options for the 2014 Ford Transit Connect, a 1.6-liter EcoBoost and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder. The EcoBoost engine is a four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 178 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The 2.5 is a standard four and delivers 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Connect XL offers steel wheels, keyless entry, air conditioning, cloth upholstery, power accessories, fold-flat front seat and CD audio. The XLT adds body coloured trim, fog lights, heated mirrors, multifunction display, cruise control, more storage and improved audio.
The Connect Wagon XLT also has privacy glass and Ford Sync. The Wagon Titanium adds 16 inch alloy wheels, auto lighting, adaptive cruise control, climate control, folding mirrors, leather interior, heated front seats and improved audio.
The 2014 Ford Transit Connect is a great commercial and family hauler. It's flexible, capable, reliable and great value. The new design and refinement also make the driving experience better than before too.
