2019 Ford Transit Connect Spied Running Around Town: Spy Shots

Sponsored Links

Spy photographers snapped a few pics of a future Ford Transit Connect compact panel van testing in Colorado, with camouflage covering only the front and rear ends of the vehicle. The top and sides of the van appear to be identical to the current-generation model, suggesting that the spied Ford Transit Connect represents just a mid-cycle refresh, and not a complete bottom-to-top redesign.

You can find the photographs on the Hooniverse website.

The Ford Transit Connect arrived in North America for the 2014 model year, using the transverse front-wheel-drive platform of the C-segment Ford Focus. We expect that platform-sharing to continue with the refreshed model, making the compact van likely to inherit the new GM/Ford 9-speed automatic transmission for transverse applications. Inside the cabin, the dash will likely be revamped, too, likely taking on an appearance in-line with the forthcoming 2019 Focus’ more simplified, horizontal configuration.

As for power, the current North American Ford Transit Connect makes do with just a pair of engine options: a 1.6L EcoBoost four-cylinder, or a normally-aspirated 2.5L four-cylinder that can be configured to burn compressed natural gas or propane instead of petrol. We imagine those two engines will carry on untouched, save for maybe some subtle tweaking to massage more torque out of the motors.

Look for a refreshed, 2019 Ford Transit Connect to make its public debut sometime in 2018. For the recent spy photos, be sure to stop by Hooniverse.com.
