The available Ford Sync 3 infotainment system is quick to respond to user inputs and feels much like a smartphone, with pinch-to-zoom and swiping gestures.
Less user-friendly is the standard stereo interface, which includes a small central screen controlled by many buttons.
This Ford van
is a rare model that doesn’t offer a turbocharged EcoBoost engine. For 2019, all Ford Connect models utilize a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with 169 horsepower.
The engine is matched with a 6-speed automatic transmission, and all Connects are front-wheel drive. The 2.5-liter can be specified for CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) or LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas, Propane).
The Transit Connect provides exceptional comfort
and quiet, tight interior inside a commercial vehicle purposed to haul supplies, packages, tools, and other cargo.
The cabin looks just like in a compact Ford crossover vehicle. With the raised roofline, there’s still more a foot of head space above even taller drivers.
The standard wheelbase model of the new Ford Transit Connect cargo van
has a 104.8-inch wheelbase, a 174.2-inch overall length, and a 72.2 width. The extended model has a 120.6-inch wheelbase, a 190-inch total length, and a 72.2-inch width.
The cargo area in the standard wheelbase model is 104.8 cu ft. The extended wheelbase version has 127.4 cu ft of cargo space.
