The Ford Transit Connect Range has grown. Announced back in September 2018, Ford revealed that they would be adding a Sport edition to their Ford Transit Connect range. This is in addition to the facelift that we already knew was coming.
What is included in the Sport?
Consistent with the other sport editions in Ford’s commercial vehicle fleet, the Transit Connect adopts the same exterior styling which includes the twin stripe and alloy wheels. The colour options are the same colour – matt black with either a silver or orange accent.
On top of the Limited specification, added to the Sport is a Dual-Zone Temperature Control air-conditioning and a partial leather trim.
It’s a little smaller than the Transit Custom but still has a sizable load area for a small van. Sometimes you may forget your driving a van with how well it performs. If you’re set on a Sport, you will have to settle for the 1.5 Ford EcoBlue diesel engine at 120PS as the only engine option.
For those who want a drive free of changing gear, go for an Ford Transit Connect Automatic or Powershift as its named.
When is the Sport available?
To be quite honest, the answer is we’re not actually sure. It was announced that the Ford Transit Connect would be getting a Sport spec back at the IAA Commercial Vehicles show in September 2018.
What is interesting is that Ford display images of the Sport version on their Transit Connect page and feature the specification in their brochure. This is despite it not being available to purchase or lease yet.
But, at Swiss Vans , we can give the Ford Transit Connect our own sports look with our own WASP upgrade. Unfortunately, you can’t get the unique stripes but we are much more affordable or get a Mercedes X Class
On top of the Limited specification, we build our WASP which includes alloy wheels, front splitter and rear spoiler.
