2022 Ford Transit Connect Exterior

The Ford Transit Connect is quite a popular small cargo van. But what happens when you give it new branding, a larger cargo area, and even more features? You get the 2022 Ford Transit Connect.

What's New for The 2022 Ford Transit Connect?

The Transit Connect has been around since 2009 as an import from Europe, but it was redesigned in 2019 with more modern styling and technology. It's still based on a car platform rather than a truck platform like its larger sibling, the Transit.

For 2022, after a one-year hiatus during which the 2021 model only had one trim level available due to COVID-related issues, it returns with five trim levels: XL Cargo Van (base), XLT Cargo Van, XL Passenger Wagon, XLT Passenger Wagon, and Titanium Passenger Wagon (the top-level). This means there are more options available in terms of standard features.

Trims & Features

The 2022 Ford Transit Connect will have five trim levels: XL Cargo Van (base), XLT Cargo Van, XL Passenger Wagon, XLT Passenger Wagon, and Titanium Passenger Wagon. The 2022 Ford Transit Connect is an all-new compact cargo and passenger van. With standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive, a standard hybrid powertrain, and lots of tech, the Transit Connect is modern, efficient, and versatile enough to replace many traditional sedans. The interior has been updated with a full digital instrument cluster, new bucket seats in the first row, and a 10.1-inch touchscreen display on top trim levels that features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Horsepower

As the 2022 Ford Transit Connect is all-new, it has some new powertrain options. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder (I4) engine that produces 162 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque. The optional engine is the 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 EcoBlue diesel engine, making 187 lb-ft of torque and 170 horsepower. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and are available with front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).

Safety

Ford says the 2022 Transit Connect's new collision-avoidance tech helped it earn a Top Safety Pick from IIHS, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hasn't crash-tested one yet. Front, side, and overhead airbags are standard for all occupants. Rear parking sensors are standard on the XLT, and Titanium trims and blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts are optional on all but the base XL trim.
