5 reasons to buy the 2022 Ford Transit Connect

1. Cabin conveniences

For family journeys or work trips with colleagues, the highly practical 2022 Transit Connect wagon offers a host of comforts and conveniences. Upfront you can tuck maps, sunglasses, and transit passes into the full-width overhead storage shelf. Drink holders across all three rows ensure your whole crew stays hydrated. For your connectivity needs, there's a wireless charging pad for compatible devices as standard on the XLT trim and above. If you like to keep the cabin interior neat, look for a 2022 Transit Connect equipped with available mid-cabin overhead storage bins.

2. Cargo options

When household chores or business endeavors require passenger and cargo carriage, the 2022 Transit Connect wagon makes it easy for you. The Transit Connect can be had as a pure cargo carrier, with just a front row of seating for your team. Otherwise, standard models have seating for six, or you can find a model optioned with the second-row bench if you have seven spots to fill. If you're traveling with a stroller or walker, the rear row seats fold down flat so you can stow these items nearby for easy-grab access on arrival. Time for a big family move? Fold everything flat behind the front row to access 106 cu-ft of cargo storage space.

3. Connected technology

Advanced infotainment features elevate family road trips and the driving you do between business appointments. The 2022 XL base trim offers the convenience of standard Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calling on the move.

The 2022 Transit Connect XLT and Titanium trim models have Ford's SYNC®3 infotainment package. It includes smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, allowing you to access your favorite apps, playlists, and podcasts directly from the center console's 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen. Pick the Titanium trim to unlock SYNC 3's voice-activated navigation system.

4. Easy accessibility

The 2022 Transit Connect wagon has passenger-friendly dimensions, an important consideration if you're picking out a vehicle that will accommodate a multi-generational family. Step-in height is a comfortable 5.7 inches, with sliding rear doors allowing for spacious entry and exit. The second-row (captain's chair or split bench) seatbacks fold forward and then flat, providing for easy step-across passenger access to the third row.

5. Useful driver aids

Ford offers a package of standard and available driver assistance features. Pre-Collision Assist with automatic emergency braking is standard for the 2022 Transit Connect wagon, supporting your awareness in busy downtown traffic by using camera technology to identify vehicles or pedestrians that may be in your direct path. For regular highway drivers, pick the XLT or Titanium trims for automatic high-beam headlights and lane-keep assist.
