For 2016, the Transit Connect Wagon can be had with a pair of captain's chairs in the second row instead of the 3-person bench. Also, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert is now optional on XLT and Titanium variants of the Transit Connect Wagon.
As it was just introduced last year, this newest generation of the Transit Connect has only minor updates. For 2015, Ford's small van gains a new color (Magnetic Metallic) and a rear cargo cover for short-wheelbase models with a liftgate.
The only thing the 2014 Ford Transit Connect shares with the model it replaces is the name. It uses a new platform, has slick new styling, two new engines backed by a new transmission, it's now available with two wheelbase lengths, and there are new tech infotainment options.
About Ford Transit Connect Cargo
Not too big and not too small, the 2016 Ford Transit Connect aims to attract families and businesses seeking an alternative to a bulky, gas-guzzling full-size van. The Transit Connect is available in two versions: the passenger wagon that seats up to seven, or a cargo van ready for commercial duties. Each is available in two lengths. About the size of a midsize sedan, even the longer model is easy to maneuver and fuel-efficient. Larger than a Mazda5 and cargo haulers like the Nissan NV200, the Transit Connect doesn't offer the spaciousness of a full-size van like the Honda Odyssey or its own big brother, the Ford Transit, but for families and businesses seeking a solid in-betweener, the Transit Connect could be their Goldilocks.
