Bought a USA 2012 taxi version. Doesn’t have cruise control. Didn’t have remote controls for the door locks either but was I was able to add them at the dealer buying the remotes and then Ford programming them in. Can I do the same with the cruise control? Can I add the buttons/ steering wheel and I’ll have cruise control? Or do I need more parts to make it a factory install? Like will I need a module? Please anyone here let me know. I’ve got the steering wheel w/CC buttons ready in hand. Thanks in advance for your replies. I’m new here and hope to learn a lot. I’ve got 2 2012 Transit Connects. #1 - XLT Premium with now 270,000 miles on it, bought it with 29,000 miles on it. #2 - Taxi version with 51,000 miles just purchased 4/13/18. I’m a Courier and drive a lot of miles!!!
Hello All, I am a Fleet Manager at Villa Ford located in Orange Ca. It has come to my attention that it has been very difficult to locate CNG transit connects. At this time I have several (35+) units of 2012 dedicated cng transit connects on my lot that are ready for purchase. I just recentley sold a T/C to a gentelman that flew out here from San Jose to purchase one from me because he couldn't find any local dealers that could/would help him. He was very pleased with his new CNG T/C. It was he that told me about these different forums and thought it would be good to let people know that I have so many units ready for purchase. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you. D

In addition, Transit Connect will be the only taxi in America offered with a compressed natural gas and LPG engine prep package. Conversion to CNG and LPG is supported by Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifiers, enabling significant fuel cost savings.
