About Ford Transit Connect

Ford

The Ford Transit is pretty much one of the go-to names in commercial vehicles.  The Ford Transit Connect is the Transit range's key entry into the small van category, though it's not the smallest member of the Transit range.

Operating in the 600 to 800kg payload territory, the Transit Connect has proven a popular workhorse since launch in 2002.  The Transit Connect it is an excellent example of the things that have made Transit vans so popular - a rugged worker with excellent looks and an immaculate safety pedegree.

About Ford Transit Connect

Ford

Specifications

The standard engine for the Ford Transit Connect is a 1.6 litre Duratorq TDCi diesel. It is available with various configurations and levels of tuning, offering between 74bhp and 113bhp. The highest-powered 113bhp option comes with a six-speed gearbox, while the other configurations offer five forward speeds. Alternatively, the option of a 1.0 litre Ford Ecoboost engine is also available, which offers a very respectable 99bhp.

A couple of different load capacity options are available. The L1 model offers a total load space volume of 2.9 cubic metres and can handle total payloads of up to 630kg. The slightly bigger L2 version of the Connect offers a fairly modest but decidedly noticeable increase in both these figures. It can handle payloads of up to 720kg and offers a 3.6 cubic metre load space. Access to this loading area is available through both side-hinged rear doors and a sliding side door.

The van offers a decidedly spacious cabin with steering-wheel-mounted controls and plenty of storage space. The van also boasts an impressive portfolio of safety, security and drive-assist features. These include central locking, which automatically relocks if no door is opened in 45 seconds, hill-start assist, emergency brake assist, adaptive stability control and a driver's airbag.

Transit Connect

Positives and Negatives

One of the great positives of the Ford Transit Connect is the way it drives. Most if not all of the Transit range can offer good steering and handling, and with the benefit of its small size the Connect doesn't really feel significantly different from driving around an ordinary family car. The suspension is well balanced, offering a comfortable ride even with a full load while managing to maintain handling and road-holding with very little leaning on tight bends.

For the majority of buyers, one of the 1.6 litre diesel configurations will definitely be the engine of choice. These offer excellent performance and impressive fuel economy, achieving figures around the 60-70mpg range depending on tuning and on which of the various eco options the van in question is equipped with. The 1.0 litre Ecoboost petrol engine, which may be the best choice for some predominantly urban van users, delivers a respectable 50mpg and also performs very well.

Negatives for the Connect are minor. The seats are not as comfortable as they could be, and this can start to become quite noticeable after a long day's drive. The diesel engines can be a little on the loud side at high speeds. Though the lack of an automatic option may not be a great surprise, this is nonetheless something that might have been a nice addition to the range

Conclusion

The Ford Transit Connect is a very solid van, representing an excellent option in the small van category with few drawbacks. The niche that the Connect fills is a crowded one with lots of competition, and while it is an impressive vehicle for both performance and loading space, it is not the very best in either category. Nonetheless, it is an excellent all-rounder with good fuel economy and is definitely a strong choice.

2002 Launch Model Ford Transit Connect
2002


Ford Transit Connect Launched

Launched with just one wheelbase and roof height, the Ford Connect, (the 'Transit' umbrella brand came later) was seen as Ford’s entry to the new van category created by the French van makers.

The Ford Connect meant the end of Ford’s car derived range, including the ever popular Escort van and Fiesta van.  With more room and purpose built as a commercial vehicle, the Ford Connect soon won many followers.  Made in Turkey, the launch models were fitted with the 1.8 litre Zetec engine and the boxy design was an immediate success. 

2006 model Connect - note Ford Badge on the Grille
2006


Facelift for Mk1 Connect

2006 saw a mild facelift for the Connect.  Outwardly, the most noticeable difference was moving the badge to the grille from the bonnet where it was upon launch.  Ford also added a 110PS engine to the 75 and 90PS, but taking the poor selling petrol option away. 

You can tell the earlier models at a glance, as the Ford oval was on the bonnet – post 2006 models saw the badge moved to the grille. Read the review here.

2009 Model Ford Transit Connect
2009


Second Facelift for Mk1 Connect

Summer 2009 saw Ford’s Connect gaining the ‘Transit’ Umbrella brand and a fresher, more modern look.  The interior was updated and the Connect received some safety upgrades, including ESP, traction control and hill launch assist as standard. The front grill received a ‘smile’ (or trapezoidal shape in Ford speak) plus a new bumper. 

Even entry level models get power windows and remote locking.  The Trend model saw front fogs, heated windscreen, voice control rain sensing wipers etc. but the model to go for in the used market today is the ‘Limited’ with its aircon, and rear park assist. Read the review here

Mk2 Transit Connect Launched

Built on Ford’s C segment (Focus) platform, the Mk. 2 Transit Connect was first revealed back in September 2012 alongside the Transit Custom.

A completely redesigned van, the choice of engines saw Ford downsizing from the 1.8- to the 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel at 75, 95 and 115 PS plus Ford’s new 100 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and a 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine available with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Transit Connect gets 1.5-litre ECONetic
2015


Ford Introduce new 1.5 litre, Euro 6 Diesel for Transit Connect

The Euro 5 1.6 diesel engine in the Connect has been replaced in Summer 2015 by a downsized ECOnetic version of the 1.5 litre unit rated at 100PS. 

Fantastic emissions of just 99g/km and economy of 74.3mpg makes the Connect a leader in the segment. 

Spring 2016 will see the other, lower and higher power outputs join the range when the old 1.6 is phased out.
