2016 FORD TRANSIT CONNECT: Success has not spoiled the Ford Transit Connect but allowed the global commercial vehicle to become an even better cargo van for cost-conscious company fleets and small business owners. There is a choice between the standard 169-horsepower 2.5-liter Duratec and an optional 178-hp 1.6L EcoBoost four-cylinder engines that are mated to a six-speed select shift automatic transmission, geared for around-town responsiveness and low-rpm highway cruising. The 2.5L engine can be specified with compressed natural gas/liquid propane gas preparation package. Redesigned from the ground up, the ’16 Transit Connect wagon can seat up to seven passengers while the Transit Connect cargo van hauls more payload than some full-size pickups. Both versions maneuver and park as easy as driving a car, and capable of delivering 30+ mpg on the highway. To meet the needs of North American customers, the ’16 Ford Transit Connect van is offered in two wheelbase lengths, in XL and XLT series levels, with up to a 1,600-pound payload and more than 130 cubic feet of cargo space. Plus, this versatile compact van is approved to tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. This stylish, contemporary cargo van is available with or without second-row seating and offers useful options like rear view camera, 6.5-inch touch screen display with navigation, and SYNC with MyFord Touch voice-activated mobile communications and entertainment system. There is a choice of a rear liftgate or 180-degree swing-out rear cargo doors with optional fixed glass. A rearview camera that includes visual guides is available that operates only when the gear selector is in reverse, and the Ford MyKey put certain limitations on other drivers who may be operating the vehicle.
