2023 Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon Trims & Specs

The Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon is an affordable way to transport up to seven passengers and their luggage without unnecessary frills. It is powered by a single 162-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, with 2022's available 169-hp 2.5-liter having been discontinued this year. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic. All derivatives are FWD.

The base Transit Connect comes with features like 16-inch steel wheels with plastic covers, black bumpers and side mirrors, automatic halogen headlights, and rain-sensing wipers. Inside, it has four speakers, a small 4.2-inch LCD screen, dual-zone climate control with rear-seat controls, and a six-way manual driver's seat. The mid-range XLT adds valuable upgrades like blind-spot monitoring, the superior Sync 3 infotainment system with a 6.5-inch screen, a six-speaker audio system, foglights, and body-color bumpers. At the top of the heap is the Titanium with its alloy wheels, nine-speaker sound system, heated front seats, and leather upholstery.

🚘What's the Price of the 2023 Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon?

Elevated pricing for the Ford Transit Connect, at least compared to its direct rivals, have not stopped it from being popular. The entry-level XL is priced at $31,860, a hefty $3,940 increase over last year's model and virtually the same as what the flagship Titanium cost in 2022. The other trims have increased by similar amounts. The mid-tier XLT asks for $33,975, but it is more customizable than the base model. Getting behind the wheel of the top-of-the-range Titanium will cost you $36,060. These prices exclude tax, registration, licensing, and Ford's $1,395 destination fee.

The Ram ProMaster City Wagon used to be cheaper than the Ford, but a huge price increase for 2023 sees it start at a far higher $33,075 in the USA - up by nearly $7,000.

πŸš—What 2023 Ford Transit Connect Passenger Wagon Model Should I Buy?

The XLT is the trim we would recommend from the range, as it gets Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a power driver's seat. It also gets advanced safety features like blind-spot assist and rear cross-traffic alert. If you're going to be using it as a family hauler, then the Trailer Tow Package may be worth it to help you haul trailers (so you don't have to fold down rear seats for extra cargo capacity). This trim can also be upgraded with leather upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat.
