Space for long items with a load-through bulkhead

Available on all van versions with a dual front passenger seat, an ingenious load-through bulkhead lets you carry items up to 3m long in a short wheelbase van (L1) and up to 3.4m in a long wheel-base model (L2). The bulkhead has a flip-up hatch at the bottom, which you can slide long items through and into a storage area beneath the front passenger seat. Behind the bulkhead, there’s room for two Euro-pallets (in L1) or up to four 8’ x 4’ sheets of material (in L2).

Now you can seat up to three in the cab

Transit Connect is available with a dual front passenger seat, enabling you to seat up to three people in a van. The centre seat can also be folded down to create a handy flat surface for writing or a laptop, and can flip up to reveal a useful storage area. (Dual front passenger seats are standard on Trend and Limited series)

Tie-down points to keep your cargo secure

Side-wall mounted tie-down points help keep the load floor clear and are both DIN and ISO compliant.

A brighter-lit cargo area for easier loading

Loadspace lamps are fitted as standard. You can also specify the option of ultra-bright LED lighting if required.

Easy-clean protection in the cab and cargo area

Rubber flooring helps keep your cab clean, a heavy duty load liner can protect the load floor and trim on the loadbox sides can also help safeguard your van from the knocks and scrapes of daily working life.
