New Ford Transit Connect Breaks Commercial Van Records
Ford's popular commercial vehicle is setting fuel efficiency records with 30+ mpg.
Although Ford's popular commercial van has long been praised for its fuel efficiency and wide range of applications, engineers are continuously improving on the vehicle, making it all the more appealing to businesses looking to expand. Two recent advancements include:
Convenience enhancements such as sliding side doors, approximately a 1,600-pound payload, a variety of side and rear window configurations, and side-hinged rear cargo doors.
Fuel economy is set to best the Ram C/V Cargo Van by as much as 5 mpg with the option to carry a greater payload than a Ram 1500 pickup. Both factors stem from the EcoBoost engine option, offering up to 30+ highway mpg.
The recent model is built from the ground up, rather than attempting to revamp the older version, which removes any restraints and lets the automaker easily deliver what could be the most competitive commercial van on the market.
Owners will be able to choose between two wheelbase options: XL and XLT. When combined with the engine options, 130 cubic feet of cargo space, and general cargo area customizability, it should be simple to slide a new Transit Connect into many business plans.
