Although it might not look like one, the Transit Connect is the closest thing the Ford lineup has to a minivan these days. With a more rugged and commercial look, the 2020 Ford Transit Connect makes an excellent choice for shoppers looking either for large passenger van or a cargo van. Available in configurations good for either, it’s a versatile option open to any drivers in the Green Bay WI area thanks to its availability right here at Broadway Automotive.
The Ford Transit Connect was developed by Ford Europe and introduced in 2002, but it didn’t make it to the North American market until 2010. Since then, it’s made a great option for commercial and everyday drivers alike thanks to its versatility and capabilities.
For the 2019 model year, the Transit Connect underwent a pretty significant redesign to offer even more value to customers. The compact van, which is the best-selling vehicle of its kind here in America, features an all-new powertrain that includes two new engine options and a new 8-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The front-end styling was redesigned as well, featuring new headlights, LED fog lamps and 16” wheel designs. Finally, a host of new technologies were added to the vehicle’s cabin, including several driver-assistive safety features.
As for those two new engines, one is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that runs on regular gasoline while the other is a 1.5L EcoBlue turbocharged diesel – the first of its kind for the Transit Connect nameplate. The 2.5L 4-cylinder with CNG/LPG gaseous fuel prep package is still available for fleet customers.
Some of the great features and technologies available in the Transit Connect include a 4G LTE wi-fi modem, SYNC 3, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and more.
