What is the 2021 Ford Transit Connect?
The Transit Connect is a compact commercial van that’s available in cargo and passenger-hauling configurations. It’s specially designed to haul people or cargo in busy urban settings, with compact dimensions that make navigating tight spaces a simple task.
What’s new for the 2021 Ford Transit Connect?
One big change is that the Transit Connect’s optional 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine can now be had with compressed natural gas/propane conversion capabilities. This optional feature can give your company the means to save money on fleet fueling and reduce emissions.
Also new for 2021, the optional lane-keeping system is now bundled with the adaptive cruise control feature. And the Taxi prep package is no longer available.
How can the 2021 Ford Transit Connect be configured?
The Transit Connect is highly configurable, which is good news for a wide range of businesses. First of all, this commercial van is available in both cargo and passenger body styles. Passenger models offer spacious seating for up to six passengers. Cargo vans offer up to 123.2 cubic feet of hauling space.
Both body styles are available in three trim levels—XL, XLT, and Titanium—that feature increasing amounts of tech and comfort features. The entry-level XL is a modern cruiser, with standard features that include a 4.2-inch central display screen and forward collision warning system. The midlevel XLT adds dual-zone climate control and Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. The XLT also adds the Co-Pilot360 suite of safety aids, such as blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning, to help you get through a workday without an issue. At the top of the heap, the Titanium adds to the XLT lineup with remote start technology, leather upholstery, and heated front seats.
Also, two four-cylinder gas-powered engines are available. The base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated for 162 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque and a peppy ride.
For a little extra heft, look to the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, whose bigger size helps the Transit Connect achieve 169 horses and 177 pound-feet of torque. For 2021, this optional engine also offers compressed natural gas/propane conversion capabilities. However, shoppers should note that this engine upgrade is only available for fleet shoppers.
