Ford Transit Connect Van: Everything You Need to Know
Ford is consistently voted as one of the UK’s most popular vehicle manufacturers, and it’s not difficult to see why. Offering reliable cars, an excellent driving experience, innovative vehicle technology and of course, affordable prices, Ford continues to set the benchmark for other leading manufacturers in 2021. Ford is known for its range of family-friendly cars, but the manufacturer also excels when it comes to designing and producing cargo vans. The Ford Transit Connect is proof of this!
Here’s an all-you-need-to-know introduction to the Ford Transit Connect, why it’s one of the greatest vans on the market in 2021, and how you might benefit from one of our competitive Ford Transit Connect lease deals.
Introducing the Ford Transit Connect
First released in 2002, the Transit Connect has remained one of Ford’s standout vans, with regular updates offering new trims, innovative technological additions and more impressive specs. As of 2021, the Transit Connect is available with four trims – Base, Trend, Limited and Sport – and two styles, including Van (short-wheelbase) and Double-Cab-in-Van (long-wheelbase).
The Van body style is the slightly more spacious option. With space for 2-3 passenger seats, the Transit Connect Van allows drivers to take advantage of the maximum available loadspace (with a payload of up to 982kg). On the other hand, the Double-Cab-in-Van style offers two seats in the cab with an additional row of three passenger seats between the cab and the loadspace. If you’re looking for a small cargo van to double up as a private vehicle, this may be the option for you.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the key benefits of this small cargo van, and why investing in a new Ford Transit Connect or browsing through our fantastic lease deals could steer you in the right direction!
