While the Caddy / Turneo Connect duo is taken care of by Volkswagen, Ford will take care of the replacement for the current T6.1 and Turneo Custom.

It will be the same with the planned return of the Amarok model and with the new generation of the Ranger model … And this is exactly what it looks like in terms of specifications and visuals. You know the news, the new Connect is actually a new Caddy. MQB for commercial vehicles and also in the case of Ford means new technologies on board. Ford does not write about the Sync system, so Connect will also have infotainment from VW. It can just have a different visual more to the taste of Ford customers. New for Connect are displays with dimensions from 8.25 to 10 inches, or 10.25 in the case of interest in a digital instrument panel, dashboard, steering wheel and, in fact, everything on board and in the engine compartment.

The basis for all engines are six-speed manual transmissions, but you can also buy dual-clutch automatic devices. The engine offer is called Ecoboost and EcoBlue, but they are 1.5 TSI and 2.0 TDI engines. 85 kW is reserved for a petrol turbo engine, you get a diesel engine with an output of 75 and 90 kW.

In the case of the Connect model, the benefit of cost savings for both large car manufacturers was also translated into the presence of all-wheel drive, which this car has never had before. Ideally combined with Active-coated equipment, you get a vehicle with solid durability and passability even in difficult conditions. This version will be exclusively with a manual transmission in combination with a more powerful diesel engine.

Other equipment is called Trend, Titanium and Sport. You can distinguish a car from a sibling mainly by a different front mask, which includes a more pronounced grille with specific headlights. As with the Caddy, two lengths of vehicle will be available to maximize utility value.
