“This workhorse is like nothing available today in the American market,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president of Global Product Development. “We’re offering small business owners a real choice to meet their needs, instead of asking them to pull seats out of minivans or compromise on one or more of their needs. Transit Connect is good news for small business owners nationwide.”
Beside the aforementioned features, the new Transit Connect excels in a wide range of aspects, such as cargo volume and load width. Ford says the Transit delivers about 135 cubit feet of cargo volume plus a load width of 47.8 inches between the wheel arches. Fuel consumption is around 20 and 24 mpg in city and highway modes, respectively.
An in-dash computer featuring a large touchscreen and running on Windows CE 6.0 allows small business owners “to run their enterprises from inside the car,” as the automaker said in a press statement. The computer provides a wide range of applications, including customer of production information, word processing, spreadsheet, calculator and calendar software, as well as Internet access and optional printing capabilities.
“Transit Connect was developed to bring small business owners a new vehicle choice, offering significantly improved fuel economy, generous and accessible cargo space with the agility and maneuverability to deliver the goods in tight quarters,” said Rob Stevens, chief engineer.
2010 Ford Transit Connect pricing starts at $21,475 including destination.
