If you are in the market for a commercial cargo van, consider the new 2019 Ford Transit Connect. This well-rounded model is better than ever before with its advanced features and high-tech gadgets.
Powered by the standard 2.0L GDI I-4 engine, this capable vehicle is equipped with the Auto Start-Stop System to help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. This function comes in quite handy in the city because it turns the motor off when you come to a complete stop.

Another nifty operation on the Transit Connect is Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Sensors are used to accurately monitor for potential crashes with other cars or people crossing the street. A warning will flash on the windshield and an audible signal will sound.
