2022 Ford Transit Connect Exterior

The newly redesigned 2022 Ford Transit Connect is bigger, faster, and more mobile than before, which is excellent news if you're on the market for a new van. It's quite possibly the best compact van out there.

What's New for The 2022 Ford Transit Connect?

Updates to this new model include more passenger space, cargo space, a larger engine, and some new safety features and technologies that are optional on the previous model but standard on the 2022 Transit Connect. The 2022 Ford Transit Connect is all-new, with a redesigned platform and larger dimensions. The Transit Connect is now 5.9 inches longer, 2.2 inches taller, and 3.2 inches wider than its predecessor. The extra space affords more cargo room behind the second row, which the automaker says is enough to fit a full-size golf bag.

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. New features include a standard 8-inch touchscreen, the latest version of Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system, and more driver-assist features.

The interior of this model offers seating for seven passengers, which is more than enough space for most families to get around town. Dual-zone climate control helps keep everyone comfortable inside, regardless of outside weather conditions. Available upgrades include leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a panoramic roof. Other standard features on this model include keyless entry, push-button start, a power driver's seat, and a six-speaker audio system. Available upgrades include a hands-free liftgate and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Horsepower

The 2022 Ford Transit Connect has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. It's a simple, reliable setup that doesn't need to be especially powerful, but it is. The Transit Connect makes 169 horsepower (126 kilowatts) and 171 pound-feet of torque (232 newton-meters), which is more than enough to motivate the 4,000-pound (1,814 kg) van.

Safety

The current-generation 2022 Ford Transit Connect is rated as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an award reserved for the safest vehicles on the road. The IIHS gives the Transit Connect's optional front crash prevention system superior marks, which means that the van can avoid collisions at both 12 and 25 mph. In addition to its optional front crash prevention system, the Transit Connect received good marks in all other IIHS crash tests and comes standard with side airbags and a rearview camera.
