Introducing rugged, SUV-inspired exterior styling, an optional mechanical limited-slip differential (mLSD) for improved traction, and raised ride height, the new Active models offer versatile, capable packages for customers whose adventurous business or lifestyle activities require rough-road capability.
In addition to enhancements for greater confidence in challenging terrain and weather conditions, the new Active variants also deliver signature interior finishes and advanced driver assistance and comfort technologies – while retaining the practicality and flexibility that is a hallmark of the Connect range.
Offering five- and seven-seat versions, the spacious Tourneo Connect Active can carry passengers and all their leisure equipment in style and comfort for days out in the countryside or longer trips away with friends and family. For business or dual-use customers, Transit Connect Active provides users with a smartly-styled and distinctive van to showcase their company, combined with the versatility to double up as a lifestyle vehicle at the weekend.
Both the Tourneo Connect Active and Transit Connect Active can be specified with the same mLSD technology already introduced for the larger Active models – developed in partnership with driveline specialists Quaife to provide optimised traction.
The mLSD automatically transfers engine torque in low-grip conditions to the wheel with the most traction, allowing drivers to more comfortably tackle wet, slippery and challenging surfaces including unpaved roads, gravel tracks, grassy campsites or snow and ice.
Ford engineers also developed a bespoke Traction Control configuration to harmonise the system more effectively with the characteristics of the mLSD – optimising performance in challenging driving conditions for a more sure-footed drive.
All new Tourneo Connect Active and Transit Connect Active models are powered by Ford’s 1.5‑litre EcoBlue diesel engine featuring advance fuel injection, turbocharging and emission-control technologies with a low-friction design.
Available with 100 PS or 120 PS power outputs, the engine is offered alongside a choice of smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmissions. The mLSD is available on both Tourneo and Transit Connect models as an option with the 120 PS manual powertrain.
The Active series models benefit from the same comprehensive suite of Ford’s advanced safety and driver assistance systems as the rest of the Connect range, designed to help reduce driver fatigue and avoid or mitigate the effects of accidents.
