The Ford Transit Connect is available as either a cargo van or a passenger wagon. The former offers quite a bit of space for business hauling needs. The latter comes with comfortable bench seating to transport between five and seven passengers. All models are equipped with dual sliding rear doors, making it easy to get in and out. Shoppers can choose between swing-out cargo doors and an overhead liftgate.

This van is available as three trim models: the entry-level XL, midrange XLT, and high-end Titanium. The Titanium is only available as a passenger wagon.

The base XL cargo van comes standard with comfort and convenience features that ensure a pleasant drive. Keyless entry means drivers don’t have to spend time in the parking lot digging around for a keychain. An overhead storage shelf helps workers organize equipment. Built-in cargo tie-down hooks secure loads during travel.

With the entry-level XL wagon, drivers can expect a similar lineup, with the addition of some passenger-friendly conveniences. It adds second- and third-row bench seats. Two additional stereo speakers treat rear passengers to onboard entertainment.

The XLT cargo van comes with additional comforts, including cloth upholstery. Its 4.2-inch multifunction display lets users interact with a variety of entertainment options. The XLT wagon adds a rearview camera to help drivers back up as safely as possible. The wagon-only Titanium is luxurious and high-tech. Its leather upholstery enhances passenger comfort. Heated front seats keep driver and passenger warm in frosty conditions. Ford’s voice-controlled Sync system lets drivers browse infotainment options without looking away from the road.

The midrange XLT passenger wagon comes with one of two wheelbases. With the shorter wheelbase, it can seat up to five. The longer wheelbase means it can transport up to seven passengers. Both the XL and Titanium wagons offer standard seven-passenger seating.

 Engine Options.

Transit Connect Engine Options.

Under the hood, the Ford Transit Connect contains one of two engines. The standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder generates enough power to easily haul heavy loads around town, with 169 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. With this engine, the cargo van achieves 21 city/29 highway mpg. The standard passenger wagon achieves 20/28 mpg.

The available turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine is an excellent option for those who plan to max out the Transit Connect’s capacities. Its 178 horses and 184 pound-feet of torque improve the van’s hauling utilities. This engine is also more fuel efficient, achieving 22/30 mpg in both models.

Those interested in hauling cargo will be happy to learn that the short-wheelbase cargo van offers 103.9 cubic feet of space. With the longer wheelbase, that space increases to 128.6 cubes. The front passenger seat can be folded flat for even more room.
