There is a reason that many cab companies throughout Orlando and Orlando FL are choosing to fill their commercial fleet with Ford’s 2018 Transit Connect. With seating and cargo capacity that make it top of its class, the new Transit Connect is an ideal taxi choice.
It is important that your fleet vehicles represent your business in all the right ways. To that end, you can customize the exterior of the Connect to complement your company’s logo with a choice of 10 different exterior colors. An available roof-access hole can be used for advertising or signage, ensuring that people will take notice of the Connect everywhere it goes.
In the cab business, cargo capacity is just as important as passenger capacity. With a long wheelbase (LWB), the 2018 Connect can seat five passengers and has a cargo volume of 60.5 cubic feet behind the second row of seats, with a payload capacity of 1,240 pounds (lbs). Should even more cargo space be required, you can fold the rear seats flat. The front passenger seat can also be folded flat to serve as a laptop platform or a surface to write on. With two rows of seating in this van, both front and back row passengers have an ample amount of room and can ride in comfort without feeling cramped.
There are a number of features with the new Connect that make it the most suitable passenger van for shuttling. An available vertical cargo net kit offers storage solutions for when you are driving passengers that have more than the average amount of luggage. The rear cargo doors swing 180 degrees outward so that loading and unloading luggage and other items is easy and hassle-free. Power windows and a 12-volt powerpoint offer simple conveniences for passengers. There are four manual keys so that more than one driver can use the Connect. A full size spare wheel and tire is useful in the event of a blowout or a flat during a busy work day.
The interior of the new Transit Connect was designed with comfort in mind, both that of the driver and that of the passenger. The control and instruments are laid out in an ergonomic fashion, making them easy to both read and use. The tachometer and trip computer come standard in the passenger wagon, and so does a tilting/telescoping steering wheel. There is plenty of storage in the front of the van, including an overhead storage compartment, a roomy glove box, and the front center console which has an interior storage bin as well as two cupholders.
Any vehicle that shuttles passengers around on a day-to-day basis needs to have top of the line safety features. The 2018 Connect is outfitted with some of the best, including the Reverse Sensing System that, along with the rear-view camera, assists the driver with safely backing up in order to reduce the chance of collision. In addition to the driver, front-passenger front and front-seat side airbags, the Safety Canopy System adds additional airbags. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) is a feature that will automatically detect any wheel slippage while driving and, in order to help the driver maintain control of the van, will immediately modify the engine torque. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System will alert the driver in the event that air pressure in any tire drops below the safe level.
A very useful available feature is the Ford Telematics Fleet Tracking System. This system allows fleet managers to get reports, alerts, and oversee vehicle operations in real time. All vehicle data is collected, including driver behavior, time spent idling, and fuel emissions and usage. The system can also provide maintenance reminders based on the data concerning the condition of the vehicles, and in doing so can cut short downtime and repair costs.
