2014 Ford Transit Connect Review, Specs, Release. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Ford Transit Connect. 2014 Ford Transit Connect is one brand new car from Ford that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Ford Transit Connect.
The all-new Ford Transit Connect offers van operators class-leading fuel economy, load carrying ability and durability. Deliveries of the new model are scheduled to start at the end of 2013. There are Ambiente, Trend and Limited trim series, with the popular Trend model offering dual passenger seat, load-through bulkhead and air conditioning as standard. Transit Connect is part of the all-new four-strong Transit range, alongside the Transit Custom and the forthcoming Transit Courier and 2-tonne Transit models to be launched in 2014.
2014 Ford Transit Connect Exterior :
Ford engineers developed the innovative load-through system to ensure the Transit Connect could safely transport long items such as pipes or rolls of flooring up to 3.4 metres (L2) and up to 3.0 metres in the short wheelbase (L1) version. This involved the development of a hinged access panel in the bulkhead and a special “fold and dive” mechanism for the outer passenger seat; creating a dished profile in the surface of the passenger seat back; and designing the instrument panel so long items could slide underneath.
+. The all-new Transit Connect also offers customers further smart features including:
>. Flexible dual passenger seat which enables two passengers to travel with the driver. The outer passenger seat folds upwards to allow large boxes on the cab floor, or flat to accommodate longer items through the bulkhead.
>. Ultra-bright LED lighting for the cargo space, enabling it to function as a working area.
>. Standard bodyside fixing points at waist and shoulder height in the load compartment, which allow additional tie-down loops, racking or framework to be fitted more easily.
>. Functional mobile office features in the cab including Ford SYNC connectivity and generous stowage space; the inner dual passenger seat folds flat as working space, or flips up to reveal a stowage box.
>. Versatile rear seating in Kombi and Double-Cab-in-Van models, with a movable mesh bulkhead; L2 models offer class-unique fold-flat seating for the second and third rows to create a flat load platform.
All-New Ford Transit Connect Offers Best-in-Class Fuel Efficiency, Delivers 34% Improvement Versus Its Predecessor :
Ford has announced the all-new Ford Transit Connect will offer best-in-class fuel efficiency, with the Transit Connect ECOnetic model delivering 4.0 l/100 km (70.6 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 105 g/km – a 34 per cent improvement versus its predecessor.
2014 Ford Transit Connect Price :
Powered by Ford’s 1.6-litre 95 PS Duratorq TDCi diesel, the Transit Connect ECOnetic offers businesses across Europe the opportunity to achieve dramatic reductions in their operating costs, with class-leading fuel economy resulting in fuel bills as much as €1,750 lower than key class rivals over a typical four-year ownership period.
The all-new Transit Connect is also the first Ford van to offer customers the highly fuel-efficient 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, twice winner of the International Engine of the Year, delivering class-leading petrol economy of 5.6 l/100 km (50.4 mpg) and CO2 emissions of 129 g/km.
The exceptionally low fuel bills are supported by further improvements in routine servicing and maintenance costs, to ensure that the new Transit Connect delivers significant savings in overall cost of ownership.
2014 Ford Transit Connect Engine :
The full powertrain line-up includes the highly-efficient 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel with a choice of 75, 95 and 115 PS, the 100 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, and the 150 PS 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Unlike many rivals which are tested like passenger cars, the all-new Transit Connect has been subjected to Ford’s ultra-stringent commercial vehicle testing and durability standards, covering the equivalent of 5 million km (3 million miles) in arduous testing, including at least 400,000 km (250,000 miles) in tough real-world fleet conditions with Transit Connect users.
The all-new model also builds on the Transit Connect’s reputation for outstanding security: the improved remote locking system now offers two channels for enhanced security and can be fully configured to the customer’s needs, while anti-tamper shielding of the door lock latches prevents destruction of the locks by drilling or chiselling.
The new model offers a stylish and spacious cockpit with car-like design and craftsmanship, smart stowage solutions, and the latest Ford driver assistance features and interior technologies. The Transit Connect is the first in its class to offer Active City Stop, designed to help motorists avoid low speed collisions with stationary or slower moving traffic in front; the new van also offers Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance, a feature for which Ford already received a EuroNCAP Advanced Reward with the Transit Custom.
Ford’s fuel-saving technologies are widely available across the all-new Transit Connect van range, with a special fuel economy package – featuring Auto-Start-Stop, Active Grille Shutter and Smart Regenerative Charging – fitted as standard to 1.0-litre EcoBoost models and available as an option with the 75 PS and 95 PS variants of the 1.6-litre Duratorq diesel. All models also feature Ford’s improved-efficiency Electric Power Assisted Steering, plus a gearshift indicator and Ford EcoMode driver information system.
