UK order book for 2014 Ford Transit Connect is now open

Article by Anita Panait, on July 17, 2013

The latest Ford Transit Connect could now be ordered for late 2013 delivery in the United Kingdom at a price range of between £13,921 and £19,130. The new Ford Transit Connect will be sold along with the Transit Custom, an upcoming Transit Courier, and a two-ton Transit that will rolled out in 2014. The Connect will be sold across Europe, North America and other global markets.

The new Ford Transit Connect was developed at the carmaker's facilities in Dunton, Essex and will be built at its state-of-the-art assembly site in Valencia, Spain. The Connect could be availed in Van, Double-Cab-in-Van and Kombi body styles.

Offered in short-wheelbase (L1) and long-wheelbase (L2) versions, the Connect provides a roomy and practical load area with total volumes of 2.9 cubic meters (L1) and 3.6 cubic meters (L2) with a full bulkhead, or 3.7  cubic meters (L1) and 4.4 cubic meters (L2) including the front loadspace area.

The new Ford Transit Connect can carry maximum payload of 1,000 kg. A load-through hatch in the bulkhead and fold-flat passenger seat provides enough space to carry lengthy loads of up to 3.0 meters (L1) and 3.4 meters (L2). Thank to a multi-fold dual passenger seat, the Connect could carry up to three people. Both versions could carry two Europallets in the load area, thanks to a width of 1,226mm between the wheel arches.

The Connect can be powered by Ford's 100PS 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that returns class-leading fuel economy of 50.4mpg and carbon dioxide emissions of 129g/km.

Customers could also opt for the 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine with a choice of 75, 95 and 115PS power outputs. Improvements in routine servicing and maintenance costs allow the Transit Connect to provide considerable savings in overall cost of ownership. The Connect features Ford ECOnetic Technologies -- including Auto-Start-Stop and Active Grille Shutter -- that help minimize fuel consumption on selected models.
