Ford Transit Connect: Perfect Fit for Local Florist

May 11, 2010

Ron Robben, owner of  Robben Florist and Garden Center,  recently spoke to us about the Transit Connect that he purchased at Fuller Ford. Robben, serving Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky since 1931, occupies a 3 acre lot in Delhi township. The local florist is known for their beautiful cut flower arrangements and also for their garden plants. Weddings, Funerals, and other delivered flower arrangements keep delivery drivers busy throughout the work week.

 The Ford Transit Connect is an excellent choice for small business owners, such as florists, because of its versatility, storage capacity, and especially fuel economy. The Transit Connect offers 135.3 cubic feet of cargo space and a payload capacity of up to 1,600 pounds. It is powered by a Duratec I-4 engine and delivers 22 city,25 highway EPA-rated mpg.

Available with or without side and rear windows, Transit Connect can be configured and upfitted to meet the specialized needs of a flower shop. A low load floor and split rear cargo doors – opening at a standard 180 degrees or an optional 255 – ease loading and deliveries alike.

Ford offers a number of specialty packages and features for the Transit Connect. Florists will especially be impressed with the Floral Delivery Package. This package comes with three adjustable, pull-out shelves that feature a unique, specially designed pegged floor system that is fully adjustable and helps control a variety of package shapes.

Watch this short video as Ron Robben speaks about the versatility of the Ford Transit Connect.

Setting Up Ford’s SYNC System: Video Demonstrations

March 15, 2010

SYNC is a cutting edge, in-car connectivity system developed by Ford and Microsoft that facilitates voice command operation of cellular phones and mp3 players. The technology offers customized GPS features with verbal turn by turn directions. In addition to conveniences such as traffic and weather updates, and sports news, SYNC offers important safety features.  SYNC is equipped with 9-1-1 assist which is alerted of an accident by air bag deployment. The system will attempt to contact the driver when there has been accident, or contacts emergency personnel if there is no response. As an added protection for you and your vehicle, SYNC’s newest feature- Vehicle Health Reporting notifies the driver of any possible vehicle maintenance concerns.

SYNC  is extremely easy to use.  By pushing one button and using the voice command “call home”, an entire phone conversation can be conveyed through the vehicle speaker system.  This eliminates the dangers of operating the vehicle while dialing or holding a cellular phone. The Music System works similarly, enabling all the features of an I-pod or Mp3 player through voice command.  The driver can command SYNC to play a specific song, album, artist, genre, or playlist without ever physically touching the device.

Ford and Microsoft teamed up to develop the best connectivity system on the market and certainly the best price-no monthly fee for the first three years.  After three years one can opt to pay the monthly fee for the traffic reports, sports scores, and turn-by-turn directions, while most features remain free.

Check out the video demonstration below to see for yourself how easy SYNC is to use:
