Available in a number of configurations, the 2019 Ford Transit Connect gives your business the necessary power, performance, and interior space to get the job done. The first thing you'll notice about this new model is the Transit Connect's handsome good looks. This year, the Transit Connect looks less like a commercial van and more like a stylish minivan. The Connect even borrows grille and headlight styling from the Ford Fusion. Inside, the redesigned dash offers a logical, easy-to-reach layout for busy drivers. Both the first and second rows seats have been redesigned to deliver extra passenger comfort.
Which Transit Connect Is Right for Me?
The 2019 Ford Transit Connect is available as either a two-seat Cargo Van or a three-row passenger Wagon. Both options offer a regular- and long-wheelbase version, the latter of which increases interior space. The model that's right for you depends upon your needs. In the Wagon, you can haul up to seven passengers. In addition to being the perfect choice for your airport taxi service, the Wagon also doubles as an inexpensive family hauler. This van also impresses with its versatility. From front to back, the seats fold flat to create cargo space whenever you need it.
The two-seat Cargo Van is designed purely for commercial purposes. Use the Transit Connect to haul company cargo or the tools you need to complete house calls. Since both sides get sliding doors, it's always easy to access your tools, even when you're parallel-parked on the street. Choose between a single rear liftgate or split doors that open 180 degrees for the kind of cargo access that works best for you.
What Features Are Available for the 2019 Ford Transit Connect?
This year, the Transit Connect comes standard with more tech features than ever before. Every van gets a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so passengers can connect devices and while away the hours on their iPads. The standard forward collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection helps you get through a crowded city grid without incident. This commercial van also comes standard with important safety features, such as crosswind assist, which helps you travel over a windy bridge with enhanced control.
The three trim models - the XL, XLT, and Premium - supply increasing levels of comfort and convenience. As you climb the trims, more safety features are available, including active park assist, which helps you ease this sizable van into a tight space. The Sync 3 infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can use smartphone apps from the central touchscreen, without getting distracted from traffic.
How Much Can the 2019 Ford Transit Connect Tow?
Properly equipped, these commercial vans can tow up to 2,000 pounds. That's more than enough towing power to haul a small trailer of extra cargo.
