2014 Ford Transit Connect Kansas City MO
If your business relies heavily on hauling or deliveries, and a minivan can no longer do the trick, perhaps it’s time that you make the switch to a larger commercial vehicle. The 2014 Ford Transit Connect in Kansas City, MO offers extreme versatility and is a great vehicle for expanding businesses.
The 2014 Ford Transit Connect is available in a variety of figurations, but regardless of the features, the Transit Connect is capable of delivering a few best-in-class features which directly relate to the capabilities that matter most in a commercial van. The Transit Connect offers a class-leading maximum payload of just over 1,700 pounds and a class-leading towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. Filling the van to the 130-cubic-foot capacity is quite difficult, but you can rest assured that the Transit Connect is able to carry out just about any load that you task it with.
The 2014 Ford Transit Connect comes with the choice of two four-cylinder engines, but if you’re looking for superior performance and fuel efficiency, you’ll likely find that the 1.6-liter EcoBoost is the more appealing of the two options. The 178-horsepower engine is able to achieve fuel economy ratings of 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which makes it a great vehicle for those long distance deliveries. The standard 2.5-liter engine isn’t as powerful or efficient as the EcoBoost, but it still provides an impressive performance. The 169-horsepower engine is capable of traveling 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
Versatility of the 2014 Ford Transit Connect
Perhaps the best part of the 2014 Ford Transit Connect is that it can be completely customized to better cater to the needs of you and your business. There are a number of features that come standard, but when it comes to the interior, the Transit Connect offers multiple ways to better accommodate the cargo that you load in it.
Dual sliding doors come standard and allow for more convenient access to the cargo, but when it comes to the rear doors, you have two different options. The XL and XLT trims of the Ford Transit come with the option of symmetrical rear cargo doors or a liftgate. The cargo doors open to 180 degrees, which makes loading easier than ever before. It’s one of the many features of the Transit Connect that can’t be found on a less-capable minivan.
The real customization comes from the slew of features that are made available including a rooftop ladder rack, literature holders, storage cabinets, dividers, double floors, drawers, cargo management packages and more. The cockpit also features a number of strategically-placed features such as an overhead storage shelf with a retaining net, and map pockets in the front-door trim panel pockets. There isn’t much that the Transit Connect isn’t capable of storing.

If you need to seat rather than store, the Ford Transit Connect is also a great vehicle, as it offers more seating configurations than any other vehicle in its class. The cargo van is capable of accommodating up to seven different passengers, but all of the seats flip, fold and tumble to make it easy to both seat and store at the same time. If you don’t need all the seats, you can choose the third-row seat delete option to get rid of it completely. Either way, both the second- and third-row of seats are completely removable, so it’s nice to keep the third-row handy, just in case you need it.
We can assure you that reading about the Ford Transit Connect is nothing compared to checking it out in person and seeing all that the cargo van is capable of.
