5 reasons to buy the 2019 Ford Transit Connect

1. Configurable seating

2019 Ford Transit Connect: Front Seats | CarMax

Looking for a variety of seating options with your van? The 2019 Transit Connect can accommodate up to five passengers with the short-wheelbase layout. Opt for the long-wheelbase model and you can fit six to seven passengers depending on the configuration. The second-row comes as a bench or as individual seats⁠—that means you can find the Transit Connect to meet your individual needs.

2. Standard features galore

Even the entry-level 2019 XL trim comes with features you might not expect on the base model; that includes comfort and convenience features like dual-zone front auto temperature control, an eight-speed automatic transmission, rearview camera, and forward collision warning with brake support. Opt for the XLT or Titanium model and you'll find even more great features as standard equipment.

3. Plenty of tech features

The Transit was originally built to haul cargo⁠—that doesn't mean it's lacking in technology. Look for optional tech on the 2019 model like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, and the SYNC® 3 infotainment system. The Transit Connect will keep you comfortable and connected.

4. Practical design

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!

5. Road trip ready

2019 Ford Transit Connect: Engine | CarMax

A full-size van may have more room, but it may not get you quite as far. Whereas, a small and nimble option like the Transit Connect can deliver quite a bit more. With an EPA-estimated rating of 24 mpg city and 29 mpg highway from the 2.0L engine, you can go further in your 2019 Transit Connect. Delivering a respectable 162 horsepower from its standard 2.0L four-cylinder, the Transit Connect is even more versatile than you expected!
