Discover the Van that Delivers the Versatility You Want and Need

When you're looking for a work vehicle that offers the kind of adaptability tradespeople and small business owners need, you can stop your search with the Ford Transit van. This highly capable van is ready to perform as either a durable cargo van or a comfortable passenger van that can transport up to seven people -- in fact, it offers the most available seating configurations in its class, allowing you to customize the interior to best serve your needs -- and those of your customers.

The Transit Connect is available in five trim levels: XL Cargo Van, XLT Cargo Van, CL Passenger Wagon, XLT Passenger Wagon and the Titanium Passenger Wagon. All are available with either short or long wheel bases, and each is more than capable of maneuvering you into, out of, and around tight spaces as needed.

Powered by a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that's teamed to a 6-speed SlectShift® automatic transmission, the Ford Transit van delivers 169 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque -- offering the kind of consistent power that you need when you're spending much of the day on the road. If you're a small business owner, you may be interested in learning that when you make a fleet order of the XL Cargo, XLT Cargo and XL Passenger vans, you can arrange to have them equipped with optional engine governors that restrict the van's top speed to either 65 or 75 mph.

No matter which Ford Transit van you choose, you'll find such standard safety features as electronic emergency brake assist, electric power-assisted steering, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Hill Start Assist and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control®. That last feature helps drivers stay in control whenever the system senses that there's understeer, oversteer, roll motion or wheel slip -- helping them stay in control even when driving on icy roads or gravel roads.

Plus, Transit Connect vans enjoy standard Trailer Sway Control, Torque Vectoring Control, Curve Control and Tire Pressure Monitoring System, as well as airbags for all rows of seating.

Naturally, capacity is of one of the top concerns when you're considering a van -- along with the ability to easily access that space. Once again, the Ford Transit Connect brings the adaptable solutions you want! Dual sliding doors come standard, which makes it easier to load either cargo or passengers, and you have a choice of either cargo doors or a liftgate in back. Fold down the second row of seats and short wheelbase versions provide 77.1 cubic feet of space, with long wheelbase models offering 104.2 cubic feet of storage capacity.

Depending on the configuration, your Transit Connect can accommodate five, six or even seven passengers; when it comes time to move cargo, those rear seats can all be folded flat to provide a level load floor.
