What are the dimensions of the Ford Transit Connect (2013-on)?

Example of a Transit Connect

I'm working on my own panel van conversion, and I found that It's pretty hard to find the dimensions of just about any van. It's all over the place. That's why I've created this article. Why not help others that are doing something similar?

This page will be helpful when you're converting a van into a camper van, or when you're planning the layout for your new corporate van.'

First, more on the Connect

The Connect is a small panel van, which has a somewhat smaller wheelbase than it's big brother (the Transit). The long wheelbase however is nearly as long as the SWB Transit, so it provides plenty of room. This is the second generation Ford Transit Connect.

Standing up in an empty van

The interior roof height of a Ford Transit Connect is 1072mm (H1) - 1245mm (H2) - 1265mm (H3) .
If you are of medium height (178cm or 5"10') you can't stand up in a Ford Transit Connect H1. .

What happens if I insulate the van?

Are you planning on insulating and cladding the floor and roof? In that case you can't stand up fully in a Transit Connect H1. .

What's a Connect high top?

Ford provides their Connects with both high and low tops. High tops are elevated roofs to provide more headroom. Generally, everything above H2 is considered a high top, and should offer sufficient space to stand up fully.
