The Transit Connect will keep you comfortable and connected.

The Transit Connect has the classic van shape, which means more room for people and stuff. Beyond the six- to seven-passenger layout, there is still loads of room for your stuff. Opt for the 2019 short-wheelbase Transit Connect and you'll get 46.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. That can even be expanded to 77.1 cubic feet with the seats folded. Long-wheelbase versions from 2019 have 15.7 cubic feet of space with all seats in place, 58.9 cubic feet with the third row folded down, and a massive 104.2 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down. That's a ton of versatility!
