Bet you never thought that you’d find yourself dreaming about a van. But here you are.
You’re the person that now has aspirations of transporting things faster, safer and more fashionably. And that is just fine. Whether you run a courier service, deliver medical supplies or cater events, here are five new features that make the 2015 Ford Transit Connect an entrepreneur’s dream van.
Versatile Rear Door
Whether you’ve got to fit paper, food, band equipment, luggage, the 2015 Ford Transit Connect features are designed with the mover and shaker in mind.
Mobile Business Card
With its modern look, the Transit Connect exterior projects a professional image, one that will let everyone in Nicholasville know what you’re all about. Side panels let you proudly display the name of your company with colorful, effective graphics. Choose from templates and graphics that are both professionally designed and installed, or have your own design created.
Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems
Being in the business of transportation means that your vehicles will eventually end up in some sticky situations. Avoid costly damage to yours and theirs by utilizing Ford’s revolutionary blind spot vision system. Using audible alerts, the Forward Sensing System helps warn you about objects in front of the vehicle. The Reverse Sensing System features ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper, and audibly helps alert you to certain objects located directly behind your vehicle when you’re backing up at slow speeds. With both systems, the closer you get to an object, the faster the beeps.
Maneuver Like a Mouse
The 2015 Transit Connect, especially the short-wheelbase model, is magical when it comes to maneuvering into small parking spots or navigating around tight spaces. It has a turning diameter of 36.1 feet, while the long-wheelbase model has a turning diameter of 40 feet.
Fill Your Tank Less Often
The available 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine gets a best-in-class 30 MPG highway, boasting 178 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Simply put, you’ll spend less on gas, get to where you need to be sooner and have the capability to bring a heavier load. It is coupled to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission engineered to handle the low-end torque needed for hauling pretty much whatever.
Options for Every Business Model
Whether you employ the XLT WAGON, XL WAGON or TITANIUM WAGON, your business will immediately benefit from the tremendous features packed into Ford’s Transit Connect.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure which model fits you and your business needs best. Your Lexington Ford store, Glenn Ford Lincoln, has been helping business owners for decades, and their experts will be happy to help you decide.
