The Ford Transit Connect Wagon is a passenger version of the small Transit Connect cargo van, freshened with two new engines: A 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine and an optional 1.5-liter, four-cylinder diesel that's expected to get 30 mpg in highway driving.
Both are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Handling is quite agile, defying the perception of a van, and the ride is steady.
The Transit Connect Wagon seats either five or seven.
New for 2019 is a 6.5-inch touch screen with Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system, available wireless phone charging, and standard 4G LTE WiFi connectivity with a subscription.
Automatic emergency braking now comes standard.
Blind spot warning is optional, as is lane keeping assist.
