The Transit Connect is significantly updated for 2019 to provide more technology, versatility and comfort and to help lower costs for personal and small business customers.
Available in two models -- cargo van and passenger wagon -- and with two wheelbase choices accommodating five, six or seven passengers, plus three trim levels, there's a Transit Connect for everyone.
Major changes under the hood include an all-new powertrain and the first diesel engine available for Transit Connect. A new 2.0-liter gasoline direct injection I-4 is standard, while a new 1.5-liter EcoBlue turbocharged direct injection diesel is newly available. Both engines feature standard Auto Start-Stop and are paired with a new 8-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
The 2019 Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon can now add best-in-class highway and combined fuel economy to its long list of winning features. It has earned EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 24 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined.
The class-leading ratings come via a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline direct injection engine with Auto Start-Stop paired to a new 8-speed automatic transmission for responsive around-town performance and low-rpm highway cruising.
In addition, Transit Connect's upcoming 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel is targeted to return an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of at least 30 mpg highway.
With room for five to seven passengers and offering easy conversion to cargo duty, the 2019 Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon takes care of business with a versatility and maneuverability that make everyday adventures easy. With a turning radius of just 38.3 feet for the short-wheelbase van, getting around busy streets is easy.
For those who need to tow a trailer, Transit Connect Passenger Wagon is expected to offer unsurpassed towing capability of 2,000 pounds when paired with the available trailer tow package.
