Design of Ford Transit Connect
These vehicles simply get business done. The back seat area is impressive and is fitted to seat adults and the seat fold into the floor well as needed. The third row of seats can also move a few inches and also have the ability to fold flat. There is sliding doors on both sides of the Transit Connect and a cargo opening at the back. A huge plus of the overall vehicle is its ability to easily be configured and loaded however you may want it to be. The vehicle rides at about the same height as a normal car also so there isn't much "stepping up" that needs to take place. You can also choose between a one piece lift up or dual side hinged doors. The Transit Connect Wagon is offered in XL, XLT, and Titanium trim levels, with configurations including short-wheelbase (SWB) and long-wheelbase (LWB) versions. The vehicle gets great towing weight also with a maximum amount of 2,000 pounds if it is needed. Ford Transit Connect XLT and Titanium models can be equipped with MyFord Touch, and as such they include a 6.5-inch touch screen plus a rear-view camera system, HD Radio, satellite radio, and USB port. All models include key-less entry and power windows. At the XLT level, you get standard cruise control, plus MyKey and heated power mirrors. On top Transit Connect Wagon Titanium models, there's dual-zone automatic climate control and other upgrades, Leather seats are available. Remote start and a panoramic roof are optional, as are reverse sensors.
