"From being easy to get in and out of, plus flexible seating and cargo space, Transit Connect Wagon makes it convenient for Boomers to keep enjoying family time or explore new hobbies and careers". It will be coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission, as will the diesel engine.

"The small van segment was down past year due to cheap gas and big incentives on larger vans", said Tim Stoehr, Ford's commercial fleet marketing manager. The new 2019 Transit Connect with all-new 1.5-liter EcoBlue diesel engine is targeted to return an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating* of at least 30 mpg highway.

"Our customers are attracted to the Transit Connect Wagon because of its versatility and price point", Julie Ellenberger, Transit brand manager told The Drive at the Chicago Auto Show. Since then the concept has also inspired competitors: the Chevrolet City Express, Nissan NV200, and Ram ProMaster City, all available in cargo van and passenger editions. Jalal and others think the Transit Wagon could resonate with those who might have owned an old Volkswagen van some time ago.

Available across the line for the passenger-friendly Transit Connect Wagon, the new 1.5-liter EcoBlue four-cylinder diesel is the latest entry in the complicated and controversial U.S. diesel fleet. Adaptive cruise control, which now works down to a speed of 12 miles per hour, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring and lane-keeping assist systems are also available.

Ford portrays the 2019 Transit Connect as the third generation of the vehicle since its introduction in the USA, but that could be perceived as a little enthusiastic. Ford is working on making Waze compatibility on the model a reality as well.

Richard Truett, Automotive News' powertrain savant, design connoisseur and all-around engineering go-to guy, jumped up on just about every stand, thought and pondered and scratched his head, .

A new 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with direct injection comes with Auto Start-Stop as standard equipment. It too comes mated to the al new 8-speed automatic. Also worth noting is that the Transit Connect will be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds when equipped with the towing package.

The 2019 Ford Transit Connect Wagon will arrive in dealers in the fall of 2018, with details on pricing and performance closer to that date.
