According to the information our team has got, it has been announced that the old E-Series of Ford’s vans will be finally replaced by the 2019 Ford Transit models. This redesigned van will largely affect and improve the delivery services and it will be a great choice whether you use it for your personal needs or a commercial work.
The exterior of the 2019 Ford Transit Connect will not be completely redesigned, although you should expect some of its parts to be significantly updated and improved. The spy photos and information have mostly been based on a camouflaged version being tested. What we have managed to notice is that this van will certainly be more attractive than its predecessor. It will also appear with more angular bodywork. When it comes to innovations, Ford will be using lightweight materials such as aluminum to build the chassis of the new Transit. That means that the new van will come with a reduced weight and definitely enhanced acceleration, performance and fuel-economy. It is also expected to be more functional than the current model, with better handling and stability. The front end of the new Transit will be lowered and you will notice the narrowed LED headlights and a different, perhaps a bit unusual grille compared to its predecessor. Looking at the side profile, the Transit will keep its traditional shape and largely resemble the current model. It will probably be standing on 16-inch alloy wheels. In the back part of the vehicle, you will find refreshed taillights that will also be using the latest LED technology.
It has been said that perhaps the greatest changes can be expected inside the 2019 Ford Transit Connect. The interior design of its spacious cabin will definitely undergo some necessary changes and improvements, following the trends of the next-generation vehicles. The priority would probably be the dashboard which is expected to be completely upgraded. Ford will also pay attention to technology and provide the latest infotainment and entertainment system. Safety systems and driver assist features will be included as well. Many would say that lots of hints inside the new Transit are coming exactly from the next-generation Fiesta and the F-150, but we will have to wait a bit and see ourselves.
There have been many rumors about the engine that the 2019 Ford Transit will be using under its hood. However, the most probable version of this van would probably come with a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 engine. It would be mated to a ten-speed automatic transmission, but currently there are no further information about the output and other numbers, same used in 2019 Expedition.
2019 Ford Transit Connect Release Date and Price
The 2019 Ford Transit Connect should be expected to make its debut sometime in 2018, but the exact release date has not been confirmed. The starting price range of this van has been estimated at $26,000 – $30,000.
