FORD’S TRANSIT CONNECT STARTS WORK AS NEW YORK TAXI
One of the most flexible new Ford vans, the Ford Transit Connect, has recently entered service in New York's taxi ranks as the city's first wheelchair-accessible cab.
The impressive van once again proved that it's fit for just about any job after a US-based upfitter, specializing in customizing vehicles for handicap access, converted a fleet of the vehicles for use in the city. The vehicle is said to have been picked for its outstanding interior package for people and cargo, with its interior space providing plenty of head room for passengers.
The reason for choosing the Transit Connect was echoed by Ford's North American director of commercial vehicles, Len Deluca, who commented that the van's roominess, comfort and durability made it the logical choice.
If you want to try out the Transit Connect for yourself, just pop down to your local Ford dealer, as it's one of a range of Ford Transit vans currently available in the UK.
