Ford Transit Connect Wagon mixes diesel power with passenger hauling

Ford Motor Company has revealed the 2019 Ford Transit Connect for the USA market. The vehicle can haul up to seven people and is created to be able to change easily between small business needs, hobbies, and grandkids.

The refreshed vehicle can bring up to seven people and includes a tweaked fascia, technology updates, and new engine options.

The wagon can be easily converted to a cargo van for work and then have seats put in for time with friends and family.

The latest example is a new diesel engine option for the 2019 Ford Transit Connect Wagon. The feature is included with Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection - a segment-exclusive.

Alongside the new styling and new engines, the Transit Connect now comes standard with autonomous emergency braking. Adaptive cruise control, which now works down to a speed of 12 miles per hour, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring and lane-keeping assist systems are also available.

Other dependable technologies in the Wagon include blind spot information system, lane-keeping assist systems, and cross-traffic alert to detect vehicles around the Wagon.

Available across the line for the passenger-friendly Transit Connect Wagon, the new 1.5-liter EcoBlue four-cylinder diesel is the latest entry in the complicated and controversial USA diesel fleet. There are duel sliding doors and available roof rails to secure and carry equipment for extracurricular activities like surfing or biking.

Changes underhood begin with the installation of a 2.0-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine as the standard powertrain, replacing the outgoing model's 2.5-liter engine. A 6.5-inch floating touch screen and wireless charging are also featured. Both come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

New engine will find its way across the company's product portfolio. It too comes mated to the all-new 8-speed automatic.

In Europe, Ford has been rolling out the 1.5L EcoBlue to a number of vehicles, including the EcoSport compact SUV, Tourneo Connect, and European version of the Transit Connect.

The Transit Connect Wagon is expected to be one of the most affordable seven-passenger vehicles in the United States.

We don't know what kind of power either engine will produce, Ford confirmed the Transit Connect Wagon carries a tow rating up to 2,000 pounds.
