How to Convert the Transit Connect from a Wagon to a Cargo Van

If you’re still questioning whether or not the new 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon Long Wheelbase has a good balance of family amenities and cargo space, take a minute and watch this how to video.  The luxury of having a fold flat second and third row allows for up to 104.2 cu. ft. of cargo space:  85.8″ length at floor and 42.2″ cargo height.  All the latches and combinations may seem a little confusing at first, but once you take the time to learn how these seats fold, you’ll be switching back and forth between family van to cargo hauler in minutes.  This truck will make any Decepticon jealous while you roll around and feel like the James Bond of family transportation with the amount of features and functionality available.


A few additional features you’ll find in this mighty hauler include:

  • Six-way power driver’s seat
  • Front Heated Seats
  • SYNC with MyFord Touch
  • Dual-zone automatic temperature control
  • Autolamp and rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Acoustic laminated windshield
  • Chrome grille surround and upper bar
  • Cornering fog lamps
  • Power-folding mirrors
  • Aluminum wheels
  • Panoramic Fixed-Glass Vista Roof with power shade
  • Forward and Reverse sensing system
  • Rear view camera
  • Trailer Tow Package including trailer sway control

To add even more options and customization to fit anyone’s needs, the Transit Connect Wagon can even be up-fitted with aircraft style overhead bins.  Please put trays back into the lock position, buckle up, and prepare for lift-off!  Still don’t think you can fit enough?  “But wait, there’s more!” The Connect also can tow a class-leading 2,000 pounds.  If you’re like my family, you never have less than 5 suitcases, and that’s just for the weekend vacation.  Throw those into the back and load up all the camping equipment on the trailer and you’re good to go.
