"How much can the 2014 Ford Transit Connect tow?"

Rick

With the redesign of the Transit Connect for 2014, Ford has issued a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds for the new models. Earlier versions were not rated for towing. Ford hasn't released complete specifications for the 2014 Transit Connect, including engine and fuel-economy ratings, but it will be available as a cargo van and passenger wagon in two sizes with two new engine choices. The engines are a 2.5-liter four-cylinder or a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder, which are used in other Ford models such as the Escape and Fusion, and they will team with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Cargo and passenger models will come in two new lengths, 174 inches and 190 inches, and the passenger versions will seat five in the smaller size and seven in the larger. The new models are about 72 inches tall, about 7 inches shorter than the previous generation. Sales of the 2014 models will begin early 2014. The 2013 Transit Connect came in one size, 181 inches overall length, and all models used a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a four-speed automatic transmission. Passenger models could seat five.
