2018 Ford Transit Connect Specs Colors, Release Date, Redesign, Price

Posted on

[MUSIC PLAYING] MARK TAKAHASHI: Hey, everybody. We’re at the Chicago Auto
Show, where Ford rolled out the 2019 Transit Connect. It’s a significant refresh, but
not an all new Transit Connect. As you can see up front,
It’s got a new style. It’s very similar
to what’s going on with the front
of a Ford Fusion. Out back, you have the choice of
either 180 degree split doors, as well as a lift gate. On the sides you have
two sliding doors.

Now, this– what
you see behind us– is the wagon, not the cargo van. This is geared to
kind of give you a wide range of flexibility for
passengers as well as cargo. Makes it a great choice for
people who might have a side business, but still
want to use it for the family on the weekends. When it goes on
sale in the fall, it will have two body styles– a regular and a long wheelbase. Capacity is up to seven
passengers, as well. Along with the
body style choices, you’ll have two
choices of engines– a two-liter, four-cylinder
gasoline, as well as a all new, 1.5-liter turbo diesel. Diesel should be a smart choice
for people who might be towing.

And the Transit Connect
can tow up to 2,000 pounds. Inside, the dash is redesigned. It’s going to have
a new 6.5 inch touchscreen with all
sorts of new features, as well as the Ford Alexa
personal digital assistant. For more information
