Short wheelbase model has 103.9 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the front seats, or 124.3 cu. ft. with the passenger seat folded. Maximum payload rating is 1,470 lbs.

2017 Ford Transit Connect comes through with an unsurpassed* towing capacity of up to 2,000 lbs

Unsurpassed Towing Capability*

When the task at hand calls for towing, the Transit Connect comes through with an unsurpassed* towing capacity of up to 2,000 lbs. when equipped with the Trailer Tow Prep Package. Among the included features is Trailer Sway Control (TSC) linked to the technology of the standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™).

2017 Ford Transit Connect helps you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion

AdvanceTrac® with RSC®

Standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) uses two gyroscopic sensors monitoring yaw and roll rates, helping you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion. It also helps maintain control on road conditions such as ice, gravel or rain. AdvanceTrac with RSC also features Curve Control, which slows the vehicle down when it senses that it's going too fast for a particular curve-plus Trailer Sway Control, included in the Trailer Tow Prep Package.

2017 Ford Transit Connect can sense if you're going too fast, then slow you down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking

Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control

When you're approaching a curve on wet or dry pavement, standard electronic Curve Control can sense if you're going too fast, then slow you down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Once you're into the curve, g-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Standard Torque Vectoring Control enhances that by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.

2017 Ford Transit Connect with Electronic Emergency Brake Assist* automatically supplies the amount of force needed to reduce the stopping distance

Electronic Emergency Brake Assist

When brake pedal pressure applied is insufficient to meet a hard stopping situation, Electronic Emergency Brake Assist* automatically supplies the amount of force needed to reduce the stopping distance.

When you're stopped on an incline, Hill Start Assist* automatically holds the brake to help prevent backward roll while you're going from the brake pedal to the accelerator. This is especially helpful when hauling a heavy load.

2017 Ford Transit Connect adapts to changing conditions to improve maneuverability and handling

Electric Power-Assisted Steering

Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) operates more efficiently than conventional steering with an electric motor instead of a power-draining hydraulic pump. Its speed-sensitive technology adapts to changing conditions to improve maneuverability and handling. EPAS provides an easy, fluid feel of the wheel during low-speed maneuvers, which becomes firmer as speed increases. That's not all. EPAS can offset pulling or drifting caused by steady crosswinds or crowned road surfaces and can also damp wheel vibrations.

2017 Ford Transit Connect features computer-controlled, intake variable cam timing

2.5L iVCT I-4 Engine

The 2.5L iVCT engine delivers power ratings of 169 horsepower, 171 lb.-ft. of torque, and features computer-controlled, intake variable cam timing (iVCT). iVCT varies the cam timing across the entire power band to match the driving condition, optimizing power and fuel efficiency* from low-end acceleration to high-end cruising. The 2.5L offers a CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package** that converts use of regular gasoline to either compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas.

2017 Ford Transit Connect limits the range of gears while in Drive to lock out overdrive for consistent speed over hilly terrain

6-Speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission

SelectShift modes: Progressive Range Select limits the range of gears while in Drive to lock out overdrive for consistent speed over hilly terrain. Full Manual with a toggle switch on the knob lets you shift up and down the gearbox, like operating a manual but without the clutch.

Tow/Haul mode: On an uphill, it selects the gear that minimizes gear hunting.
