of the Month

  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: The Evolution of Van: Ford Updates Transit and Transit Connect

Recommended Posts

Vans tend to evolve more slowly than any other type of automobile, but with the recent influx of new van models large and small now vying to haul America’s deliverables, the evolution of the van has accelerated. Case in point: One year after Ford introduced its impressive full-size Transit van for 2015, it gave the model a slew of upgrades for 2016. Now comes the 2017 Transit with yet more enhancements.

-

Most notable for the 2017 Transit is a new, low-rise center console that is supposed to allow easier walk-through access to the rear. Climbing aboard also should be easier for short drivers with available power running boards. All 2017 Transits come standard with LED interior lighting, while upfitters will appreciate the high-capacity upfitter switches that are supported by dual heavy-duty batteries. The base Transit audio system now has four speakers, including a tweeter and woofer, and all models can be ordered with heated 10-way seats clad in cloth or leather.

-

The smaller Transit Connect wasn’t left out, either. It adds high-spec XLT and Titanium trim packages to the range, the latter coming standard with Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Both get reverse sensors, automatic headlamps, roof rails, and a six-say power driver’s seat.

Online ordering for the 2017 Transit Connect commences March 14th, while Ford will accept orders for the 2017 Transit beginning April 4th. Both vans find their way into Ford showrooms this September.
