Overview

Ford’s Transit Connect is the right-sized commercial van for so many purposes, which explains its consistent popularity with contractors, delivery services, and businesses that need to shuttle people around. The Transit Connect Cargo Van can handle up to 127 cubic feet of cargo while achieving fuel economy usually associated with a compact sedan – and that helps the bottom line for any small business. In Passenger Wagon form, the Transit Connect can transport up to seven in comfort. And no matter which Transit Connect you choose, its efficient size makes parking and tight spaces a breeze.

Another plus is that the Transit Connect fits in most residential garages, making this trusty partner ideal for drive-home employees. It’s even growing in popularity for personal use, with buyers using it instead of a minivan or three-row SUV to transport extended families, or even to camp in. It’s also a fine alternative to a pickup truck for getting materials home for do-it-yourself renovations. With the optional Trailer Tow Package installed, the ’22 Transit Connect can pull up to 2,000 pounds – enough to handle a light haul of supplies or recreational gear.

Trims and Configurations

Think of the Transit Connect as coming in two flavors: the work-focused Cargo Van and the spacious Passenger Wagon. On the outside, you can tell the difference by the windowless side panels (behind the front doors) on the Cargo Van and the conventional windowed sides of the Passenger Wagon. Inside, the Passenger Van has three rows of seating with two seats per row, although the fold-flat second-row seats can be swapped out for a three-person bench to increase capacity to seven people. The Cargo Van has just two seats for the driver and a passenger, with the rest of the interior open to a variety of after-market upfitting configurations.

The Transit Connect Cargo Van comes with either a short or long wheelbase with either the XL or XLT trim package. The Connect Passenger Wagon comes only with the long-wheelbase configuration across three available trim levels: XL, XLT, and Titanium. All Transit Connects are front-wheel drive and have a powertrain consisting of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (output: 162 horsepower and 144 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the Cargo Van is 24 mpg around town and 27 mpg on the highway; the highway rating rises to 28 mpg for the Passenger Wagon.

2022 Ford Transit Connect Standard Features

Keeping an all-work focus, the Connect XL Cargo Van is built with 180-degree swing-out rear cargo doors, 16-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers, and dual-sliding side doors. Some of its other features of note are automatic high-intensity discharge headlights with wiper-activated headlamps, remote keyless entry, and rain-sensing front wipers. Inside, there’s two-passenger seating with vinyl upholstery, manual climate control, vinyl floor covering, and a tilt/telescopic steering column. The XLT upgrades to cloth seats and carpeted floors and adds automatic high beams, fog lights, body-colored exterior trim and bumpers, heated power side mirrors, cruise control, and wireless device charging.

The Passenger Wagon XL has all the features from the XL Cargo Van, but with six-passenger seating (via three rows). It also adds second-row windows, fixed third-row side windows, fixed rear-door glass, and a reverse sensing system. The interior is comfortable with dual-zone automatic climate control, rear-seat climate controls, and carpeted flooring (first and second rows). Similarly, the XLT in Passenger Wagon form carries over all the amenities from the XLT Cargo Van and adds seating for six along with the side and rear windows. A six-way power driver’s seat is included, and buyers can select a no-cost upgrade to replace the rear cargo doors with a liftgate. The Titanium offers the most complete package with leather seats (heated in the front row), a standard rear liftgate, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, 16-inch aluminum wheels, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. All Transit Connect trims include automatic emergency braking. Blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert is added to the XLT and Titanium trims.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The infotainment system in the XL includes a four-speaker sound system, a 4.2-inch LCD display screen, Bluetooth connectivity, dual 12-volt outlets (one front and one rear), a USB port, and access to FordPass Connect for remote vehicles services and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system with a 6.5-inch color touchscreen is standard on the XLT and Titanium (and optional with the XL). The setup adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, SiriusXM satellite radio, Applink, and dual USB ports. Navigation is standard on the Titanium and available on the other trims.
