Who needs the 2018 Ford Transit Connect?

The Ford Transit Connect is an affordable, practical take on the commercial van. It's smaller than traditional full-size commercial vans, making it a good pick for drivers who travel through crowded city streets and highways. The Transit Connect is a four-cylinder engine and car-based chassis make it both thriftier and easier to handle than commercial competitors. The Transit Connect is available as a commercial cargo van, with up to 128.6 cubic feet for your company supplies, and as a passenger transport, with seating for up to seven passengers.

What are the Ford Transit Connect configurations?

When you shop for a Transit Connect, you certainly don't lack for options. There are two distinct body styles: the Cargo Van and Wagon. The Cargo Van is designed for people hauling. With the standard wheelbase, the Transit Connect transports up to five passengers. Choose the long-wheelbase model, and you get seating for seven. The Cargo Van offers three trims: the entry-level XL, mid-grade XLT, and classy Titanium. The XL Wagon can double as an extremely affordable family hauler, thanks to its roomy seating, air conditioning with rear climate controls, and power second-row windows. In the XLT Wagon, your clients will feel at home, thanks to the quieter ride and rear privacy glass. Choose the Titanium to give your favorite customers the luxury experience, with upscale features like dual-zone automatic climate control and leather upholstery.

But maybe your business is more the Cargo Van type. In that case, you'll find the same wheelbase options in the Transit Connect - standard or long - and two trim models, the XL and the XLT. The entry-level Cargo Van XL gives you the best deal on modern utility, supplying all the basics - air conditioning, an overhead storage shelf, and built-in cargo tie-down hooks - to help you tackle your to-do list. If you prefer a more comfortable cargo-hauling experience, check out the Cargo Van XLT. This Transit Connect upgrades the standard vinyl seats and floor mats with cloth upholstery and carpeted floor coverings. This commercial van is also a bit savvier, thanks to its multi-function driver display and cruise control.
