A New and Unique Vehicle from Ford

By Tori T.

Who said great things come in small packages? When there’s a Blue Oval badge, then size is irrelevant – greatness comes in all sizes! And that’s why we’re excited to introduce the newest vehicle to the Ford family, the Transit Connect Wagon. It seats up to seven, and both easily and comfortably, thanks to sliding side doors and fold-flat second- and third-row seating.

The new Transit Connect Wagon will have an EcoBoost® engine (a choice of two four-cylinders will be a available). It will be available in two wheelbase lengths, five- and seven-passenger configurations and in three models: XL, XLT and Titanium. No other wagon on the market today offers the convenience of fold-flat seating, at least a 1,200-pound payload and more than 100 cubic feet of cargo space.


When properly equipped, this versatile wagon is approved to tow up to 2,000 pounds, 500 pounds more than a four-cylinder Toyota Highlander SUV.

The Transit Connect Wagon is part of the new Transit and Transit Connect family of vehicles introduced earlier this year at a special media program in Amsterdam. Check out exclusive video from the program by clicking here!

Do you make this model to transport wheelchair users?? If not build a luxury model for Ford Mobility ...

Al in buffalo - can't wait to order the new Transit connect. Only problem might be the 6.5 foot height restriction of my garage opening.

I have no problem with the interior design. I get it. It does appear, however, that whoever designed the front end of the 2014 Connect Wagon was channeling the Pontiac Aztec front end - a winner it there ever was one. Look at comparison photos on the web. It's uncanny. Until it gets a "nose job" my wife has informed me there will be no Connect Wagon in my future regardless of how many bikes, shrubs, etc. that it could haul.

Can't believe Ford is not bringing over the Tourneo! Missing the boat again but there's always the Flex......?

What mental case drew up this monstrosity??? It's ugly as sin.

I was depressed when the Grand C-Max did not make it over here. Now I am cautiously optimistic. I had a Transit Connect for a two week period and both my wife and I were pleased with the overall driving experience. While this may not have the car like handling of the C-Max it may make up for it in other ways like roominess, My only concerns/complaints are no diesel options and no 2 liter EcoBoost. If I want economy than a turbo diesel tops the list. If I want power than the smaller EB engine is not enough. C'mon Ford have some guts and give us all I asked for.

Love the new 7 seater. I wonder if the new 1 liter eco boost could be mated with AWD. If not how about the 1.6 liter eco boost? Don't forget NAV, and a reverse camera... And how about a tailgate option with pop up glass?

Ugly Ugly Ugly, with attractive Cars like a diesel S-Max I can't possibly conceive why they would bring this to the US instead. What happened to world view, stop trying to make something special for the US, you'd think the success of other European models over here would make Ford smarten up a bit and bring one of their people movers over here.
I think this is the answer to compete with Chrysler Caravan. Ford needed to come back with a 7 passenger SUV or Van type vehicle.

I can't wait. After driving one in Germany, I'd gladly trade in my Edge. Please bring the Diesel to the U.S.

I love this! My first vehicle was a 1964 Ford Truck and I always keep coming back to Ford. I had to get a Honda Odyssey in order to transport my electric wheelchair and can't stand it. My wife just got a Ford Edge and we love it. I would really like to see the 2.0 ecoboost engine with a 3,500 lbs towing capability. I can't wait to get one!

Driving a Honda 2010 Element manual transmission.....I hope Ford doesn't fall short on features, manual transmission, V6 or ecoboost......please think/design out of the box!

Good news! Wasn't aware of a more stylish passenger van being available, although I knew that the seating was available. As a Ford dealer we're looking forward to selling the Transit Cargo version here after decades of success in the UK and Europe but this is a bonus. By being out of the minivan segment for a number of years, I think we've actually created a marketing opportunity with a new
people mover like this. Bring it on!

Would love to see a V-6 or at least the 2.0 Ecoboost. I've heard nothing but GOOD reviews on the current Transit Connect so am eager for the new and improved.
Robert T 11/19/2012
all i know is that it wont make it to the US like the Grand Cmax Van witch is almost the same MPV . most . likely it well get canceled as well just like the Grand Cmax
Not that I am bashing the Transit but I have not heard that many good reviews about them and that makes me sceptical about them. Why not bring the Escort based van from the UK over. At least that van can be made all wheel drive - not just front wheel drive.
Richard P 11/17/2012
Interesting new item. I see from the pictures this van has the same front seat head rest/restraint problem I have encountered in 2 otehr new Fords. Leans way too far into the sitting position to be comfortable. So you made a nice van out of the Connect how about a small pickup on the same platform? However if the head restraints continue like this then Ford is not an option.
Brad K 11/15/2012
Looks okay, but I'd still rather have a Grand C-Max. If you don't want it confused with the C-Max Hybrids then call it something else, but it's got the Transit Connect beaten hands down in the style department. What I don't understand though is that why is there room for all these different models in Europe, but not in the US? Someone needs to explain that one to me.

Cool vehicle ........ but all these won't be seen in the middle east according to me

The competition seats eight. I need seating for eight. PLEASE make an eight seat version
Ford was first to make an automobile, and they are the forerunner in Engineering and Manufacturing precision. I have been an exclusive Ford Customer, lover since the Dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Cudos to the Ford Team for making a fuel efficient, yet roomey Passeger Van unequaled by Mercedes Benz, Range Rover or BMW Vans. I never had a serious problem with my Fords, (except I have some noise in my slip axle, to be fixed soon) Ford People YOU ROCK. I like the style of this Van, only a crash dummy could tell you that this is the best to come. Talk about conserving energy and maximizing safety, you did it right. I love my F150 6 speed trailer hauling beast.
It pulls 6000 pound 32 foot Air Stream Trailer. You can't tell that you are pulling anything. Well, the next vehicle you buy should be a Ford. The competitors can't hold a candle to this new Soccer Moms or Family Vacations. Good hunting.

Ford has created a dillema for me. Do I want the added economy of the C-Max, or the added passenger space of the 7-passenger Transit Connect Wagon? Both are very attractive - way to go, Ford! Decisions, decisions... .
This should be more popular than the Kia Soul.
