Almost 10 years after the Ford Transit Connect introduced the U.S. market to Euro-style smaller freight vans, the Blue Oval is giving its kin/load hauler a progression of updates as it faces proceeded with rivalry from Chevrolet, Nissan, and Ram.
Critical changes to the invigorated 2019 Ford Transit Connect traveler wagon incorporate the accessibility of another turbo-diesel 1.5-liter inline-four. Named EcoBlue by Ford’s showcasing group, the motor is relied upon to procure an EPA-appraised parkway mileage gauge of 30 mpg or better on the thruway, Ford says. Simply don’t expect much get up and go from the small diesel, as Ford representatives disclosed to us the organization is focusing on only 120 strength or so from the motor. A normal 200 lb-ft of torque, be that as it may, should give the Transit Connect an OK measure of low-end snort.
Set up of the present gas filled 2.5-liter inline-four, the 2019 Transit Connect subs in a littler 2.0-liter unit. While Ford isn’t prepared to talk last specs, an agent revealed to us that strength and torque aggregates will be down somewhat contrasted and the present motor, which summons 169 drive and 171 lb-ft of torque. Both the standard 2.0-liter inline-four and the discretionary turbo-diesel motor mate to another eight-speed programmed transmission and accompany auto stop/begin innovation. (Passage guarantees us the new transmission will limit a potential loss of execution from the new gas motor contrasted and the active 2.5-liter.)
Passage didn’t simply tinker with the van’s powertrains. The refreshed Transit Connect likewise gets a large group of new wellbeing and comfort hardware, including standard robotized crisis braking and recently accessible highlights, for example, versatile journey control, blind side checking with raise cross-movement alarm, path keeping help, and high-power release headlamps. Also, a standard 4G LTE association permits the Transit Connect to fill in as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 gadgets.
New front styling consolidates components from Ford’s most recent plan dialect, while an updated inside incorporates extra cushioning for the first-and second-push situates, another instrument group, and an overhauled focus stack.
Accessible in XL, XLT, and Titanium trims, the Transit Connect will keep on being offered in both five-traveler short-wheelbase and six-or seven-traveler long-wheelbase variations.
In spite of the fact that Ford hasn’t yet openly examined the freight centered variant of the Transit Connect, we presume that the two-traveler model will embrace huge numbers of these new highlights. We should know more before the 2019 Transit Connect achieves Ford dealerships this fall.
