Featuring new sheetmetal ahead of the A-pillar, and a redesigned interior, the '19 Ford Transit Connect Wagon, heretofore known as Transit Connect Passenger Wagon, targets "active" Baby Boomers who will attach bikes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards or luggage to the optional roof rails, or who need to keep working as craftsmen and craftswomen after age 65.

And maybe they have a small business, too.

For the new 2019 Transit Connect Wagon (a cargo van model is coming later), Ford took a conservative "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach to the refresh. This means a new trapezoidal grille design and revised headlights. A 6.5-inch screen is available. As ever, there are dozens of handy storage cubbies throughout. Inside, there are three rows of seats, and the back two can be folded down to a flat floor, although it's raised a bit compared to the actual floor - Stow "N" Go, this ain't, but it's pretty darn close.

An optional 2.5-liter gas engine can be prepped for natural gas. For 2019 the base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Ford hopes the diesel will return at least 30 mpg highway by EPA measurements, but we'll have to wait for official confirmation on that. The diesel was added due to customer demand.

"The small van segment was down previous year due to cheap gas and big incentives on larger vans", said Tim Stoehr, Ford's commercial fleet marketing manager.

Tim Stoehr, general fleet marketing manager for Ford Commercial Trucks, says the new diesel option will be paired with an all-new 8-speed automatic transmission, which was designed in conjunction with General Motors. "All the things a hypermiler would know instinctively". Available across the line for the passenger-friendly Transit Connect Wagon, the new 1.5-liter EcoBlue four-cylinder diesel is the latest entry in the complicated and controversial United States diesel fleet. The automaker's SYNC voice-command and SYNC 3 with Ford+Alexa technology is available. You'll also find two USB ports, while wireless phone charging, navigation, and a nine-speaker sound system are optional. Besides, it packs automatic emergency braking as standard and adaptive cruise control which slows the vehicles after detecting traffic. Adaptive cruise control, which now works down to a speed of 12 miles per hour, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring and lane-keeping assist systems are also available.
