Ford has updated commercial vans Transit Connect and Courier

Ford has updated the light commercial van Transit Connect and Transit Courier. Both models received slightly modified decor, new engines, and an expanded list of electronic assistants. Ford Transit Connect 2018 is made in the style of modern models of the brand. During restyling, the model received another grille, a modified front bumper with a spoiler, and a narrower head optics with strips of LED DRL. All this made the design of the car more calm. As for the interior, the designers of the brand slightly changed the design of the instrument panel, while the central panel of the updated Transit Connect now has a 6.0-inch display of the multimedia system Sync 3. But the new Ford Transit Courier 2018 model year from the outside almost does not differ from the pre-reform version. In the interior of the changes, too, a bit: the other steering wheel and the mentioned touch screen at 6.0 “, which replaced the small monochrome screen. Updated vans can be ordered either with a 1.0-liter gasoline engine with the function of deactivating one cylinder at low loads, or with a 1.5-liter diesel engine of the EcoBlue family. By default, both engines are paired with a six-speed mechanics, while the diesel can be ordered with an eight-band automatic with shift paddles. The characteristics of the engines have not yet been announced. Assisting the driver is called on by electronic assistants, such as a parking assistant, a collision avoidance system with pedestrian recognition, a side wind stabilization system, and a speed limit function. Serial production of the updated Ford Transit Connect and Courier will be installed at the plant in Turkey. Receiving orders will start in the spring of 2018, and the first customers will get their cars closer to the middle of the year.
