Flex fuel and perimeter alarm updates for 2016 Transit Connect compact commercial van
The Ford Transit Connect compact commercial van also will be updated for 2016.

The flexible-fuel vehicle system will be standard equipment on 2016 Transit Connect vans with 2.5-liter I-4 engines destined for non-California emissions states – giving customers more choices. Flex-fuel Transit Connect vans are engineered to run on E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline), unleaded gasoline or any blend of the two. Ethanol burns cleaner and is more renewable than conventional fuels.

Customers also can choose the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine on Transit Connect vans and Transit Connect Wagon XLT.

A perimeter alarm will be included at no additional charge when available remote start is ordered on Transit Connect, helping minimize complexity and providing value to customers. The feature – which detects security threats through impact and shock sensors and activates an alarm to help protect vehicle contents – can potentially help lower insurance costs.

2016 Transit Connect vans will be available at Ford dealerships beginning in September.

New seating options and driver-assist technology for Transit Connect Wagon
Ford Transit Connect Wagon – the unminivan – which already boasts the most flexible seating in its class, now features standard second-row fold-flat bucket seats for the 2016 Titanium model. The bucket seats are available as a no-charge option on the XLT long-wheelbase model, while a six-way power driver's seat is available in cloth for the first time on XLT.

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with cross-traffic alert is now an option on 2016 Transit Connect Wagon XLT and Titanium models. The technology helps detect vehicles in blind spots when changing lanes and backing up. On Transit Connect Wagon, the BLIS feature includes power-adjustable PowerFold® heated exterior mirrors.

Transit Connect Wagon XLT and Titanium models also offer new 17-inch premium alloy wheels.

The 2016 Transit Connect Wagon will be available at Ford dealerships beginning in September.
