For 2019, Ford continues to improve the Transit Connect Wagon, not only in vehicle versatility, but also in terms of safety equipment and more curvy styling. While its compact design has already won over the commercial crowd, the Transit Connect looks to gain further in the retail segment with all-new powertrains and Ford’s latest infotainment gear.

2019 Ford Transit Connect Overview
What's New for 2019
The 2019 Ford Transit Connect receives two new powertrains (one of which includes a diesel), a revised dash layout, updated fascias, and restyled headlights.
Choosing Your Ford Transit Connect
Ford offers the Transit Connect as both a Cargo Van, which has panel-sliding doors and split-opening rear cargo doors, and a Passenger Wagon, in an attempt to meet the demands of the retail market. Much smaller than a traditional minivan, the Transit Connect is a practical alternative to the larger Transit and is less expensive than today’s traditional minivan. Despite its light-duty nature, it can handle a 1,700-pound load and tow 2,000 pounds when equipped with the optional towing package.
The regular-length van or wagon seats five, while the extended versions can seat six or seven passengers. The extended version carries an identical appearance, disregarding its additional 15 inches of wheelbase, of course.
The Ford Transit Connect’s smaller size enables more efficient engines compared to its larger brethren. A 2.0-liter direct injection four-cylinder is new and becomes the standard engine. It develops 150 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque and is solely routed to the front wheels. The second engine is a 1.5-liter direct injection turbodiesel that will be available in early 2019. While power figures haven't been released, it's expected to deliver greater than 30 miles per gallon on the highway. Both engines are paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Fleet customers can choose a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that includes a CNG/ LPG conversion kit. This engine generates 169 hp and is paired with a six-speed transmission.
The Transit Connect is available in three trims: XL, XLT, and Platinum, which is only available as a Passenger Wagon.
The upgraded materials and painted bumpers are significant gains with the 2019 Ford Transit Connect XLT trim. Add on the panoramic roof for the rear passengers, and this vehicle has few shortfalls.
