One Feature-Packed Van

As mentioned above, the 2018 Ford Transit Connect in Phoenix is offered in a variety of configurations to meet your specific needs. As a compact cargo van, the vehicle comes standard with built-in tie-down hooks, a fold-flat passenger seat and an overhead shelf for extra storage space.

The passenger van variant offers available features like heated front seats, leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control. Even more amenities come on the top-ranging Titanium wagon. They include navigation, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, chrome trim and a Sync 3 infotainment interface.

Engine Options

The front-wheel-drive Transit Connect employs a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 169 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. It is matched to a six-speed automatic. Towing capacity maxes out at 2,000 pounds, while the vehicle's payload capacity tops off at 1,620 pounds.

If you need more power, 2018 Ford Transit reviews suggest opting for the compact van's older brother, the Transit. Rear-wheel-drive Transit models can be had with one of three engines. For starters, there is a gutsy 3.7-liter V6 that generates up to 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. There's also a 2.5-liter V6 that can make 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Finally, a 3.2-liter inline turbodiesel five-cylinder, delivering 185 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, is also offered.

Advanced Safety Gear

Stability and traction control, hill start assist and antilock brakes are just a few of the standard safety features found on the new Transit Connect. A rearview camera, parking sensors and blind-spot warning are optional on select models.
