Our New Connect by Ford
March 17, 2018
After we had finally found one to look at, we decided we wanted one, but there weren't many in the model we wanted to be found, an XLT, without the 3rd row seats, and to our amazement, they were already building 2019's, however, we did get a nice rebate. We decided on a basic, XLT, which has almost everything one would want on it, as standard equipment. We haven't driven it much yet, but it does create a lot of looks, and so far, it is everything we wanted, and more, it is amazing how good the view is out the front, and with windows everywhere you need them, it is much better than a 4dr car, the ride and drive is great, reminder here, this baby GVW is 5200+ lbs, so it isn't a lightweight by any means, the Ford 4 cyl seems up to the task, we did manage to find one just basic XLT, in the color we wanted, it had nothing else on it as far as options, and it suits us to a tee, the only option I would have liked would be a tow package, it's good for 2k lbs, and would have had a 2" receiver, but if needed, I can add that, but the factory wiring would have been nice. Only draw back I've found, the battery is under the drivers seat, they say, but I haven't ckd it yet. Overall, my wife likes it, and you know what that means! BTW, we are in our 80's, so go figure!
