What's New For The 2019 Transit & Transit Connect

In 2019, the Ford Transit gets minor revisions, while the Ford Transit Connect gets more comprehensive changes. The biggest change in the Ford Transit is the addition of more safety technology to make driving easier and more confidence-inspiring. The Transit also gets a longer wheelbase in the latest model year. The addition of a longer wheelbase provides more space for passengers on the inside, regardless of whether you choose the two-seat or 15-seat passenger option. There are some minor adjustments to trim level amenities too, including more standard technology and conveniences on the lower trim levels. The Ford Transit Connect, meanwhile, gets more significant changes in 2019 to its performance capacity. The Transit Connect is available with three different engines this year, including two gasoline engines and one diesel engine. Like the Transit, the Transit Connect has more standard safety technology in 2019. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also standard on most trims in 2019.

What are the Available Trims and Features for 2019?

The 2019 Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect are both available in three trim levels. In all three trim levels of the Ford Transit, you have a choice of two wheelbase lengths (regular and extended), and three different heights. A low roof is standard, while you can opt for the medium-height and tall roof if you need more space. Single-zone air conditioning is a basic amenity on the base Transit, while the other two come with dual-zone air conditioning instead. The base Ford Transit seats two passengers, while the others hold up to 15. Hinged doors are standard, but you can select sliding doors if you prefer. Flexible storage arrangements and extra console storage areas complete the Transit's amenities. The Ford Transit Connect has standard dual-zone air conditioning. It comes with a driver's information display and an audio infotainment system, too.
