Wheelbase Choices

Transit Connect Passenger Wagons are available in short-wheelbase or long-wheelbase versions. The short-wheelbase model features a second row with leather-trimmed seats that flip, fold and tumble to provide additional cargo room. For even more storage room, you can remove one or both second-row seats. Available in the XLT and new for 2017, the short wheelbase is now available in a Titanium trim. The long-wheelbase passenger wagon has three rows of seating with room for six or seven passengers and is available in XL, XLT and Titanium models.
Easy Fuel capless fuel filler

Easy Fuel® Capless Fuel Filler

The Easy Fuel capless fuel filler eliminates the need to put the gas cap back on after fueling because there is no cap. After you remove the nozzle from the fuel tank, the seal is shut automatically.
