Here’s All You Need to Know About 2020 Transit Connect

The 2020 Ford Transit Connect is expected to hit the market soon. Ford has made only a few changes to the car compared to its older 2019 sibling. The carmaker introduces it with 16 body codes, all of which offer different door and window configurations, plus multiple seating options. For the 2020 model, Ford will also bring two powertrain options and top-class driver-assist features.

Let’s get to know more about this Ford creation here:

1. Trims
The 2020 Ford Transit Connect will come in both cargo- and passenger-van versions. The cargo van is offered in two trims, namely XL and XLT, in either the short- (SWB) or long-wheelbase (LWB) version. Passenger vans are available in XL (LWB only), XLT, and Titanium trims and also come in two wheelbase options.

2. Engine and performance
The only engine option made available in the 2020 Ford Transit Connect for private customers is a 2.0-liter inline-four engine. It makes 162 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque and pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission while delivering 24 mpg on city roads, 29 on the highway, and 26 in cumulative driving. The front-wheel-drive is the only drive mode option available in the 2020 Ford Transit Connect.

3. Design
The 2020 Ford Transit Connect is primarily a carryover. The interior and exterior designs of the car were refreshed for 2019, along with the incorporation of the 2.0-liter engine. However, all trims of the 2020 version now come with automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers. Two trims, namely the XLT and Titanium, are now available with standard safety equipment. This includes automatic high-beam headlights, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring, all of which are optional on the base XL trim.

Ford makes only one body style available, which is the long-wheelbase with three seating rows, with space for up to seven passengers.

4. Technology
In the 2020 Ford Transit Connect, Ford introduces Ford Co-Pilot360, which is an advanced suite of standard driver-assist technologies. This package encompasses BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and a Rear View Camera. The 2020 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van also brings new innovations designed to put people in command.
