Transit Connect Offers Endless Upfitter Possibilities

The Ford Transit Connect has quickly gained a reputation for its flexible balance of capacity and fuel efficiency. No other vehicle in the American market delivers the combination of capability and fuel economy offered by Transit Connect. That is why it was named 2010 North American Truck of the Year at this year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit. However, many people might not realize that the Transit Connect can be equipped in countless ways to cater to their business’s specific needs. Transit Connect’s multiple configurations (Van and Wagon), vertical cargo walls, long loadfloor and low load height offer virtually unlimited upfitter possibilities. There are a number of new offerings from several different upfitters such as Adrian Steel.  Fuller Ford has partnered with Industrial Ladder & Supply Company, Inc. to bring you these endless possibilities from Adrian Steel. See some of the different configurations here The Transit Connect can be equipped with a variety of exterior racks, interior racks, bins, bulkheads and other upfits.

  • Mesh screens for side and rear doors
  • Cargo management systems (racks and bins)
