New Transit Connect
The new face of business
The trademark Transit toughness, durability and functionality still remain, in features including an ingenious load-through bulkhead, and flexible front passenger seating. But this is now an exceptionally sophisticated 1-tonne van equipped with valuable drive-assist technologies many of which are not available in vehicles today. Others help keep drivers connected, hands-free; to help them control and monitor their speed; and even to help protect pedestrians in their path.
So what's new
Segment-first driver assistance features
The new Transit Connect introduces a comprehensive range of segment-first driver assistance features including Intelligent Speed Limiter – that enables automatic adjustment of maximum vehicle speed to remain within legal limits, the Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection emergency braking system, Side Wind Stabilisation, and Active Park Assist that helps to steer the vehicle into both parallel and perpendicular parking spaces.
Redesigned and upgraded cabin
Inside the Transit Connect, an upgraded cabin features a revised instrument panel with a new central control area that incorporates a floating, tablet-inspired 6-inch colour touchscreen on high series models, featuring Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system. New trim materials provide a stylish and hard-wearing working environment for long working days in the cab.
Helping to keep you inside the speed limit.
The New Transit Connect now comes with optional Intelligent Speed Assist, designed to enhance your speed control and enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, the Traffic Sign Recognition camera automatically detects the current speed limit (when activated), then the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit.
Fresh New Look featuring the three bar grille that is shared with the rest of the Transit Range.
New Transit Connect introduces a smart new front-end appearance that adopts the latest Ford design DNA. An imposing three-bar Transit grille combined with slimmer headlamps – with powerful HID Xenon lamps and LED daytime running lights available on high series models, combine with a more aerodynamic lower fascia and front spoiler to deliver the fresh new look.
Striking new 16” wheel design
Generous payload space
Like the outgoing model, new Transit Connect offers commercial vehicle operators an outstanding breadth of capabilities, with short and long wheelbase options providing load volumes up to 3.6 m3 (VDA), payload capacity ranging from 520-890 kg, and bodystyles including van, kombi and double-cab-in-van.
New Tourneo Connect
Offering five-seat and seven-seat versions, the Tourneo Connect introduces fuel-efficient new powertrains including the all-new 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission option, and Ford’s 1.0litre EcoBoost petrol engine featuring cylinder deactivation; manual vehicles feature six-speed transmissions as standard. The stylish new front-end appearance
is complemented by upgraded interior trim materials.

The New FordPass Connect* modem and FordPass app enables you to interact with your car like never before. That’s because a range of connected services in your vehicle, and on your smartphone, work together to keep you effortlessly connected on every journey.
Up-to-date traffic information
Live Traffic†† enhances your SYNC 3 Navigation system by delivering real-time traffic updates every 30 seconds. This is our most accurate and up-to-date navigation system ever, and includes traffic information for all roads, rather than just the major roads. The technology then adjusts your recommended route based on the traffic conditions, helping you to arrive more relaxed and on time. Live Traffic is complementary with FordPass Connect for the first two years.
With an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot offering speeds of up to 4G LTE, you don’t need to use your smartphone’s valuable data allowance to stay online. You can effortlessly connect a maximum of ten devices to the hotspot, load your favourite streaming services, and make those long journeys feel a lot shorter for any passengers or children travelling in your car. FordPass Connect comes with 3 months or 3GB of complementary data. Afterwards you can buy data bundles for a day, a week, or even a year from Vodafone. See their website for details.
Added peace of mind
Launching on the All-New Ford Focus, eCall** is a potentially life-saving feature that’s designed to reduce the time between a serious accident occurring and assistance being provided by the emergency services. In the unlikely event of an accident, FordPass Connect can automatically place an eCall to the emergency services and provide them with your vehicle’s location. You can also press an SOS button in your car to contact the emergency services directly if you witness an accident or require emergency assistance.
Connect to a range of remote features with the FordPass app
FordPass Connect becomes even more powerful when it’s paired with your smartphone via the FordPass app. Once connected, you can take advantage of a host of innovative new features:
