2019 Transit Connect
2019 Transit Connect
Available now is a 2019 Transit Connect in Durham that has been specially designed with the well-seasoned, on-the-road traveler in mind. It is quite modern and compact while at the same time spacious from the inside, so nobody has a clue about all that gear and travel luggage that you have constantly stacked within. The mini-van doubles up as a commercial van as well. Another added advantage – it’s surprisingly affordable. There is a lot of variety available for a 2019 Transit Connect in Durham. Firstly, there's the choice between two variants – Passenger and Cargo. Within these two, there's again an option to choose between a short-wheelbase and long-wheelbase trim. So if you want a family vehicle with adequate comfort, you can choose the Passenger variant which again comes in three models - XL, XLT, and Titanium. The cargo van works best for commercial purposes and is available at the XL and XLT models.
Performance It seems like the options available for a 2019 Transit Connect are never-ending. The type of engine fitted in it includes a standard 2.0L I-4 engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers 24/29 mpg in the passenger version and 24/27 in the cargo van. The short-wheelbase wagon comes with a recently-created 1.5L EcoBlue diesel I-4 engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The long-wheelbase is fitted with a 2.0L I-4 engine. So a larger variety comes with the available diesel option.
Whatever the type of Transit Connect you choose, you can expect spacious interiors with three rows of comfortable seating for 5 to 7 adults – depending on the variant. The short-wheelbase van is a five-seater while the long-wheelbase model seats six to seven adults - again depending on whether the second-row bench has opted for individual row seats.
Infotainment includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen with standard FordPass connectivity with two USB ports, HID headlights, Alexa integration, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
