Ford has been selling the global Transit Connect in the U.S. since 2010. Originally a bare bones vehicle aimed at commercial clients, the redesigned model introduced in 2014 added a seven passenger model more appropriate for families. The model range includes three trim levels and two vehicle lengths. The short wheelbase or 5-passenger models are available in XLT trim level only with a choice of 1.6l and 2.5l four-cylinder engines. The 7-passenger models are available in XL, XLT and Titanium trim levels with the 169-bhp 2.5l four-cylinder as standard equipment. Unlike other minivans, the 7-passenger model is available with either a rear liftgate or a split rear door. The most appealing model for families is the range topping Titanium 7-passenger Transit Connect which includes features like power seats, leather upholstery and alloy wheels.
The Transit Connect is all-new for 2014 and now includes a new 7p model. The 2014 Transit Connect Wagon is offered in two wheelbases bracketing the size of the outgoing model. The shorter wheelbase is a 5-passenger model with two rows of seats. The longer 7-passenger model includes a third row of seating. The overall height of the vehicle is down significantly, but the extra width and length of the 7p model add considerable volume to the interior. Ford will offer a choice of two four-cylinder engines, each mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Three trim-levels will be offered XL, XLT, and Titanium.
