Ford Transit Connect Wagon gets "EcoBlue" diesel option, no hybrid so far

Share

The 2019 Transit Connect Wagon will be available with either a 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel engine or a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. Although pricing for the 2019 Transit Connect Wagon hasn't been announced, the current version on dealer lots sells for about half that price.

If you liked the Volkswagen bus, Ford thinks you'll really like the company's 2019 Transit Connect Wagon. The seven-passenger Expedition Ford debuted during last year's Chicago show starts at $51,695, for example. It, too, comes matched to the 8-speed automatic. Ford hopes the diesel will return at least 30 mpg highway by EPA measurements, but we'll have to wait for official confirmation on that. No fuel ratings were provided for the gas engine.

The 2018 model's standard 169-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder will continue for use in fleets and compressed natural-gas or propane applications. Although the powertrains are new, load ratings are about the same-just over 1,600 pounds payload, 2,000 pounds towing, slightly lower for the EcoBlue engine.

As ever, there will be plenty of ways to customize your Transit Connect, with XL, XLT, and Titanium trim levels, plus the choice between the short- and long-wheelbase models with five or seven seats, respectively.

The 2019 Transit Connect Wagon is easier get in and out of and offers flexible seating and cargo space. There are duel sliding doors and available roof rails to secure and carry equipment for extracurricular activities like surfing or biking.

For families with tight budgets, minivans and SUVs are out of reach, said Imran Jalal, Ford marketing manager for commercial trucks and vans. New driver-assist features include standard automatic emergency braking, with pedestrian detection; the availability of adaptive cruise control: Ford's Blind Spot Information System (BLIS): rear cross traffic alert; lane departure warning; and lane-keeping assist.

As is the case in almost every new vehicle nowadays, Ford is fitting a healthy suite of active-safety systems to the wagon version of the 2019 Transit Connect.
