All of us here at Hassett are so excited to announce that the new Ford Transit was just named the ‘International Van of the Year 2014’! This really is exciting for Ford as this award makes Ford the first single manufacturer to win this award two years in a row. And beyond that, Ford has now made it very clear how serious they take commercial vehicles.
“The all-new Transit Connect has moved the game on for compact vans – and we are really proud to win this significant award again,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president of Product Development, Ford of Europe. “The new Transit Connect is just as tough and hard-working as all our commercial vehicle range, and comes with smart new looks and much lower fuel bills.”
If you’ve never driven a Ford transit Connect, they are very similar to cars in terms of comfort and efficiency – but that’s where the similarities stop. The Transit Connect is a ruggedly built truck, certified to Ford Light Commercial Vehicle Durability Standards, providing a maximum payload of 1,600 lbs. and up to 129.6 cu. ft. of cargo space. It’s no wonder why so many businesses count on the Transit Connect to deliver day-in and day-out.
