2018 Ford Transit Connect
The 2018 Ford Transit Connect is a van that will accommodate your many needs. One moment it can transport up to seven people, depending on the configuration. With a few simple changes, it transforms to accommodate large cargo items. This passenger wagon also protects everyone riding inside and has a utilitarian nature you’ll always appreciate.
Life always throws curve balls, but the 2018 Ford Transit Connect will flex to any shifting needs. It works to carry passengers, cargo, or a combination of the two. Ford offers short- and long-wheelbase models.
When you get the Titanium model, seven seats come standard, while there’s an option on XL and long-wheelbase XLT models. To help with comfort, the third-row seats can slide forward and back. With the short wheelbase five seats are standard. Sliding side doors assist with passengers getting in and out of the van without problems.
Select either a liftgate or cargo doors for the rear portion of the Ford Transit Connect. Loading cargo into this van doesn’t take excessive effort. The low load floor height is under two feet. When you select a long-wheelbase model, the cargo area is 42.2 inches, or 49 inches for short-wheelbase models. To allow for expanding the cargo area with ease, all rear seats fold flat. The front passenger seat also folds flat, in case you need to load extra long items into the van.
Navigating through tight spots doesn’t take much effort with the Ford Transit Connect. The compact design of this van makes it easily maneuverable, leading to stress-free driving.
Transporting your most precious cargo requires trust in your vehicle, and the Ford Transit Connect is worthy of that. It features an array of safety features that help prevent accidents and avoid injuries in a crash. In fact, the van has earned a 5-Star Overall Crash Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
One of the safety innovations, trailer sway control, helps you tow with confidence. It detects when the trailer is moving from side to side, applying the brakes and/or cutting torque output from the engine to correct the problem.
Thanks to Curve Control, you don’t need to worry about accidentally entering a turn in the road too quickly. It also reduces
engine torque output, plus applies braking to all four wheels, changing vehicle speed so you safely navigate the turn.
Your vehicle should work to serve even the smallest needs, another area where the Ford Transit Connect does incredibly well. Day after day, you’ll come to appreciate details included on the van which make different tasks easier and more comfortable.
A prime example, the Sync 3 infotainment system responds quickly to commands so you’re not constantly waiting. It works with natural voice controls, meaning no needing to memorize strange phrases to say. You can also get an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, and more.
