2022 Transit Connect Van vs. Transit Connect Wagon: Which One Fits Your Business Needs?
This year's Ford Transit Connect comes in both Van and Wagon variations, and we're here to help you determine which of these new models is best suited to meet your daily business needs. Find out more about these two 2022 Ford Transit Connect configurations below before visiting our Big West Ford dealership in Edmonton, AB to find them among our new inventory.
Transit Connect Van vs. Transit Connect Wagon Safety Features
The 2022 Ford Transit Connect hits the market with excellent safety ratings and several standard driver-assist technologies, including a Forward Collision Warning that pairs with Automatic Emergency Braking to help you avoid or minimize the impact of frontal collisions. The new Transit Connect also comes with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, with other popular functions like a Lane Departure Warning and blind-spot monitoring available to those who prioritize a varied driver-assist suite.
Power & Handling
Their measurables may be slightly different, but both the Transit Connect Van and Wagon offer the same powertrain options. A base 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine packs 162 horsepower, while an available 2.5-litre inline-four nets 169 horsepower. Both these motors pair with an automatic transmission, and thanks to accurate steering and excellent body control, the Ford Transit Connect Van and Wagon both offer athletic handling and can be easily maneuvered into tighter spaces. Furthermore, both configurations offer the same fuel economy with each powertrain, netting a combined 9.4 L/100km with the base engine and 10.6 with the 2.5-litre motor.
Interior Size & Cargo Space of Transit Connect Van vs. Transit Connect Wagon
Both these cargo van models are generous in cargo capacity, but their interior configurations vary. While the Transit Connect Van comes with one row of seats, the Wagon comes with three, and both boast an ample 1,190 mm of headroom up front. The Van also gets nearly 3,000 mm of cargo length when the front passenger seat is folded and a slightly higher cargo hold, while the seven-seat Wagon's cargo space comes to 3,000 L with the second and third rows folded. In other words, the 2022 Transit Connect Van gets a slight edge in overall cargo capacity with a max volume of 4,129 L, but its Wagon stablemate is more accommodating for those who tackle daily jobs with a crew in tow.
Exterior Dimensions of Transit Connect Van vs. Transit Connect Wagon
The 2022 Ford Transit Connect Van and Wagon are identical in terms of wheelbase, overall length and width, and front and rear tracks. Beyond that, the Van's rear door opening width is slightly bigger than the Wagon's, as is the height of its side door opening and loading floor. If you're used to riding solo on your daily jobs and used to transporting larger cargo, the Transit Connect Van's exterior dimensions can accommodate, while the Transit Connect Wagon has been configured to give its passengers easy access.
A trio of packages is offered as optional with the new Ford Transit Connect, with each tailored to a variety of daily driving needs. A Gaseous Engine Prep Package comes with a six-speed SelectShift transmission and hardened exhaust and intake valves for the available 2.5-litre engine, while the Trailer Tow Package includes a trailer tow hitch and a trailer sway control feature for safe, stress-free hauling. Lastly, the Ford Co-Pilot360 package gives you a comprehensive driver-assist suite including Lane-Keeping Assist with Lane Departure Warning and a Driver Impairment Monitor, automatic high beams, and a Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert.
