Commercial Spotlight: Transit Connect

May 31st, 2012

This month, we’re highlighting one of our most versatile and affordable commercial vehicles, the 2012 Transit Connect. It’s a great vehicle for any kind of business, incredibly customizable for its class, and is built to last with all of the Ford quality you’ve come to expect and enjoy.

The Transit Connect is engineered and tested to thrive in conditions that are harder, faster and tougher than most of its drivers will ever see. It’s Built Ford Tough on a rugged, commercial vehicle platform, with over 670,000 sold worldwide since 2003. Regular maintenance is simple, and the first spark plug change isn’t due until 90,000 miles.

Transit Connect is certified to Ford Light Commercial Vehicle Durability Standards – tested to 150,000 customer-equivalent miles.

  • Doors and accompanying hardware were tested over a cycle of door opening and slamming equal to 205 times a day for 2 years
  • Parts vibration testing simulated the worst roads to help ensure solid, reliable performance and long parts life
  • Prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures across 58 countries has proven its reliability in varying climates
  • Wheels, tires, suspension knuckles, springs, shock absorbers and underbody structure were tested for taking on potholes and curbs

Transit Connect Van provides 2 seats up front, a huge cargo box with all-around access, and near-vertical sidewalls so you can make the best use of all that space. Sliding doors on both sides of the van let you load and unload the front half of the cargo area, or help position long items being loaded from the rear. Out back, 50/50 split rear doors swing 180° in standard trim, or available doors on articulated hinges (shown below) swing a full 255.° You’ve got 4 options for the van’s door panels: side- and rear-door glass, single-side door glass, no glass or rear glass only. Inside, an expansive load floor plus low side and rear liftover heights help take the stress out of loading and unloading. Transit Connect is always ready for business.
