Which Transit Connect is the Best?

If fitting the 2019 Ford Transit Connect into your budget is a primary concern, we suggest going with the XL then turning to the options list to upgrade to cloth seating and SYNC 3. Otherwise, we'd go with the XLT. Find a Ford Transit Connect for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Ford Transit Connect Cost?

The 2019 Ford Transit Connect Wagon is a passenger vehicle based on the Transit Connect cargo van with full windows all around, dual sliding side doors and a choice of rear cargo doors (that open 180 degrees) or a tailgate. Ford currently offers it in only the long-wheelbase (120.6 inches) configuration. A short-wheelbase (104.8 inches) version will be available with the 1.5-liter turbodiesel.

The short-wheelbase Wagon has five seats, while the long-wheelbase Wagon adds a third seating row for 7-passenger capacity. Both the second-row and third-row seats fold flat and can be removed. Ford has only posted pricing for long-wheelbase models. They come in XL, XLT and Titanium grades. All pricing includes factory delivery charge.

The XL trim ($28,140) comes only with the long wheelbase, along with three seating rows, power second-row windows, front dual-zone auto climate control, rear manual climate controls and rear parking sensors.

Other equipment includes 16-in steel wheels, remote keyless entry, cruise control, power windows, vinyl upholstery and floor covering, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, an 110-volt power outlet, a folding front passenger seat, FordPass Connect smartphone integration, Bluetooth connectivity, Pre-Collision Assist with emergency braking, a rearview camera, and an AM/FM stereo with a 4.2-in display and an auxiliary input, plus a couple of rear speakers.

The XLT ($29,775) has a self-dimming rearview mirror, 16-in alloy wheels, power heated outboard mirrors, fog lights, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, roof rails, cloth upholstery, a 6-way power-adjustable driver's seat, cruise control, SYNC 3 with a 6.5-in touchscreen, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a CD player, four speakers at the front, wireless phone charging, Ford MyKey with programmable usage restrictions, voice control and a rearview camera. There are no rear climate controls with the short-wheelbase XLT.

The Titanium ($32,890) brings LED fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an upgraded infotainment system with navigation, HID headlights and heated front seats.

Some of the higher-end standard features are available as options on lesser models. Other options -- depending on trim and configuration -- include navigation, a fixed panoramic sunroof, lane-keeping assist, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, satellite/HD radio and front parking sensors.

When the second-row seats in the short-wheelbase version are folded down, cargo space measures 77.1 cu ft. If the seats are in place, there's still a considerable 46.9 cu ft.

Long-wheelbase versions can accommodate 104.2 cu ft. of cargo space behind the front seats. Behind the second row, it's 58.9 cu ft. With the third row set as far forward as it will go, there's 19.8 cu ft. When it's moved back as far as possible for legroom, there's 15.7 cu ft.

In both versions, the back seats fold down to form a completely flat load floor.

This feature is essentially a more sophisticated form of stability control, where it can cut engine power and apply the brakes automatically if necessary.

Competition

2019 Ford Transit Connect vs the competition

2019 Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van -- Bigger and more expensive, but still a useful, well-judged size and perfectly capable. Now comes with the choice of a longer wheelbase.

2019 Ram ProMaster City Wagon -- Also based on a European van, with class-leading power. No option for a third row, though.

Used Toyota Sienna -- Spacious, comfortable and more family-friendly. It's also the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive.
