Ford Transit Connect Mobility Vans: Engineering – Redesigned

2014 Ford Transit Connect www.newenglandwheelchairvan.com 9
The 2014 Ford Transit is new from the ground up, starting with the lightweight yet durable unibody construction and continuing with five wheelbases, four roof heights and four models . The models are the cargo van, the passenger wagon, the chassis cab and the cutaway. Going well beyond your typical vehicle redesign, the new Transit is a major transformation in the full-size van you’ve been accustomed to driving. Engineered to ultra-stringent Ford commercial truck standards for durability. Built to exceed what you’ve come to expect from the leader in full-size vans.

Unibody Construction
The Transit unibody is lightweight and highly durable, engineered with high-strength and boron steel.

Roof Heights
The everyday mission of the full-size commercial van is carrying lots of cargo. Now you can match multiple cargo box sizes designated in roof height – low, medium or high – to the volume or payload your job requires. Imagine a cargo volume over 490 cubic feet – and a roof tall enough to accommodate large items in an upright position. That alone says volumes about the innovative new design of the Ford Transit.

Wheelbases
Ford Transit van and wagon models come in regular (130-inch) and long (148-inch) wheelbase lengths. There’s also a long wheelbase with extended body. Chassis cab and cutaway models offer three wheelbases: 138, 156 and 178 inches. So what does this mean? More choices in load floor length for increased capacity in the cargo van and more passenger space in the wagon. The redesign has the ability to accommodate a wide range of body types and sizes in chassis cab and cutaway models.

Model Configurations

The Ford Transit is available in four models:

  • The Transit van spacious and capable.
  • The Transit wagon – roomy and comfortable.
  • The Transit chassis cab – rugged and versatile.
  • The Transit cutaway – convenient direct cab-to-body access.

From hauling cargo to transporting passengers, the Ford Transit does it all.
