Baby Boomers have shown a fondness for new Ford Transit Connect vans. Many “Boomers” born between 1946 to 1964, grew up driving or riding in vans. Surfers, environmentalists and hippies of the 60s and 70s seem to all have spent quality time in vans from yesteryear. Therefore, it’s no surprise that this crowd has embraced a new van that offers plenty of room and innovative technology.
Now that they are all grown up with children and grandchildren of their own, Baby Boomers are tapping into the remarkable functionality of the new Ford Transit Connect Wagon. With space for up to seven, new driver-assist features, an embedded 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices and available SYNC® 3 functionality, the new Transit offers much more than the standard minivan.
The new Ford Transit also offers a level of versatility other more expensive minivans cannot. Available in a wide variety of cabin configurations to adapt to business, cargo or passenger transport needs the Transit is adaptable and efficient. New 2019 Ford Transit Connect vans are offered with a choice of two engines, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with direct injection or an all-new 1.5-liter EcoBlue® diesel engine. Both powertrains are paired with a new 8-speed automatic transmission.
“Baby Boomers have always embraced life’s adventures and to them age is just another experience to master,” said Mark LaNeve, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. “From being easy to get in and out of, plus flexible seating and cargo space, Transit Connect Wagon makes it convenient for Boomers to keep enjoying family time or explore new hobbies and careers.”
