The Van that Thinks Like a Car
When it comes to spaciousness, versatility and capability, no competing van can touch what is offered by the 2016 Ford Transit Connect in Scottsboro AL. Offered with two wheelbase lengths and with the choice of two powertrains, the Transit Connect meets its buyer where they live, making it among the most popular van choices worldwide in the last year. And, since it is also available as a commercial model, it’s suitable as a vehicle for a small business as well. It should come as little surprise that, at Harbin Automotive, it’s got a reputation we’re proud to brag about.
As mentioned above, the 2016 Ford Transit Connect offers two fantastic powertrain options, each of which offers something special for its buyer. Standard for the new model year is a 2.5L Duratec Inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, making for a smooth and composed ride that’s perfect for town or country. Meanwhile, upgrading to the available 1.6L EcoBoost I-4 presents 178 hp, 184 lb-ft of torque and an excellent 29 highway mpg. Both engines are equipped with the six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, leading to a ride that is smooth and composed.
As mentioned above, the 2016 Ford Transit Connect is a favorite for small business owners due to its class-leading towing capacity and extremely versatile interior cabin. Its two wheelbases make it a van that a buyer can also suit to fit their needs; the standard, short-wheelbase van offers 103.9 cubic feet of storage capacity while being easy to maneuver on city streets, while the long-wheelbase option offers 128.6 cubic feet of storage capacity with a payload of 1,620 lbs. In either configuration, the van offers a towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.
Those who opt for Transit Connect Wagon, meanwhile, may outfit their model to offer seating as well. New for 2016 are available second-row fold-flat bucket seats, meaning that they can enjoy all of the cargo-carrying charm of the van with the seating flexibility of the wagon. It’s the best of both worlds indeed.
