Ford Connect Freedom™
Connect Conversion – New, Comfortable and Fuel Efficient Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle
Available exclusively from Allied Vehicles, Ford Freedom™ is our latest conversion and combines ultra-modern comfort with the latest in fuel efficient, environmentally friendly performance.
Freedom™ ensures safe and convenient wheelchair access, with its innovative EasyGlide™ ramp enabling users to have a standard car one minute, a wheelchair accessible vehicle the next. This stylish vehicle is a joy to drive, with a smooth ride and superb all-round visibility. Ford’s Connect is also the first vehicle in its segment to achieve a maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
EasyGlide™ Flat Fold Ramp
The lightweight EasyGlide™ wheelchair access ramp is simple to use and doesn’t compromise boot space in the vehicle. EasyGlide™ simply pulls-out from the rear floor to become a strong, low-gradient ramp. When not in use it folds upwards behind the wheelchair or back into the boot floor to create plenty of space. Freedom™ is also tested and certified to meet the highest automotive and accessibility standards.
