Ford Transit Connect Trim Levels

From cruising around town, to owning a mobile businesses, to fun family getaways, there are so many reasons why drivers in the Alliance, Canton, and Hartville areas decide that the Transit Connect is the right van for their needs.

Once you've made that decision, you'll want to choose the right Ford Transit Connect trim level to make sure you get the most out of your passenger or cargo van. To help you with this, our team at Montrose Ford Lincoln of Alliance has put together this quick guide. Contact us today for more information!

Passenger Wagon Trim Levels

The passenger wagon is an ideal configuration of the Ford Transit Connect for school bus, taxi, or shuttle services. This trim is available with a regular wheelbase (RWB) or a long wheelbase (LWB). The RWB can seat a total of eight to 10 passengers between three or four rows, while the LWB extends the seating capacity to 12 to 15 passengers between four or five rows of seats.

You'll also have your pick between two different trim levels:

XL Trim Level: The Ford Transit Connect XL trim level comes with all of the standard features, including a 3.7L V6 engine that generates 275 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Alongside that, you'll have a 6-speed Automatic Overdrive with SelectShift® Transmission.

The XL also makes smart safety features like the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ standard, which includes a distress call with airbag deployment when bundled with SYNC®. An AM/FM stereo system comes standard, but the SYNC® infotainment system is also available. This includes a 4-inch color LCD touchscreen or a 6.5-inch touchscreen, and offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as options.

XLT Trim: The XLT trim level includes everything you'd get with the XL trim level, but adds a few additional features. For example, rain-sensing windshield wipers come standard on this trim. These automatically turn on and adjust their speed depending on the rate of rainfall on the windshield.

The XLT trim also includes automatic headlamps and carpeted front and rear flooring, as opposed to the vinyl flooring in the XL trim.

Cargo Van Trim Levels

Another way to design your Ford Transit Connect is as a cargo van. This is great for families who need to haul some extra gear when moving or getting away for the weekend. It's also ideal for businesses that meet clients in the field.

With this trim configuration, you'll be able to decorate the exterior with your company logo and use your van as a mobile business card. It features seating for two passengers, keeping the rear of the van open to accommodate plenty of cargo:

  • Regular Wheelbase Cargo Area: 315.2 cubic feet
  • Long Wheelbase Cargo Area: 404.3 cubic feet
  • Long-EL Wheelbase Cargo Area: 487.2 cubic feet

With so much space, you can easily store tools and ladders, transport produce and floral arrangements, or run a mobile dog grooming business out of the Ford Transit Connect. There are also several upfitter switches you can use to install whatever you need to get the job done, including work benches, shelving, racks, cabinets, and drawers.

Smart safety features like Lane-Keeping Alert and rain-sensing windshield wipers are available to help you reach your next stop safely and conveniently. Plus, if you want to keep track of your vans from headquarters, Ford Telematics™ technology is also available to help you monitor your fleet at all times.
