Introduction

The Transit Connect is Ford’s originated-in-Europe compact van. It’s smaller than full-size cargo and passenger vans, including the so-called minivans, such as the Odyssey, Sienna and Town & Country, but larger than the Mazda5 and with more cabin space than most small to mid-size crossovers. Its primary mission is moving cargo and people, not towing family boats or using all-wheel drive as a substitute to common sense.

Transit Connect is the only vehicle in this class to offer two different lengths and in passenger trim a choice of five or seven seats. You can’t mix and match every variable, but there are more permutation than others.

It also offers an engine choice no one else does. The standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder is similar to Ram ProMaster City’s 2.4, more powerful than the Nissan NV200 or Chevrolet City Express 2-liters. Transit Connect Van and one short-wheelbase passenger model offer a 1.6-liter EcoBoost that makes more power and torque, at lower revs, than the 2.5 and gets higher EPA ratings. Both come with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

The Van is merely for hauling one or two people and cargo, up to 1620 pounds of it, or 104 cubic feet in the short wheelbase and 129 in the long. At six feet wide and 190 inches or less long it’s easier to maneuver than most pickups or anything else that carries that much.

The Wagon derivative offers a 5-seat XLT short-wheelbase model with passenger space for five on par with family sedans and 47 cubic feet of cargo space; 77 with the rear seat folded. Long-wheelbase seven-seat wagons offer 15.7-20 cubic feet behind the sliding third row, 59 behind the middle row and 104 behind the front seats. Those numbers shame many seven-seat crossovers (the larger, heavier Explorer offers 21/44/81 cubic feet, respectively), and the low floor height and sliding side doors offer superior access. There are plenty of places to stow things inside, many you’d not normally think of, and while the seat-folding isn’t state-of-the-art simple, it’s a very practical apparatus.

From the driver’s seat Transit Connect feels like you’re in a slightly higher Focus seat facing the same hexagonally oriented dash design, inside a big motorhome because of huge windows and lots of open space. Feature content is closer to Focus or Escape than an optioned-up Fusion or Explorer, but so is the price, and you can get navigation, leather upholstery and many conveniences.

Transit Connect drives like a car, with controlled body motions, predictable road manners and an excellent view for skipping through traffic. The Wagon’s ride is comfortable and quiet enough for road-tripping, and it rides best with a few people on board, while the Van is better with something in back so it’s not a big empty echo chamber.

The 2.5-liter engine is adequate for traipsing around town or interstate cruising. Heavy load acceleration, mountain grades and passing will require lots of revs but it never felt stressed or that it couldn’t do that all day long. The transmission does its job well and the shifter’s an easy reach. Disc brakes all around are a step up from the competition and proved happier bounding down steep hills.

An optional turbocharged 1.6-liter delivers more power in a relaxed manner, and unless you’re exploiting that power frequently, nominally better fuel economy than the 2.5; alas, it is not available in seven-seat Wagons. EPA estimates range from 20-22 city to 28-30 highway depending on configuration, with Wagon usually 1 mpg lower because of additional glass and insulation weight.

Transit Connect competes directly with Ram ProMaster City (cargo and 5-seater) and Nissan NV200 and Chevy City Express cargo vans; the two different wheelbase Wagons frame the six-seat, three-row Mazda5. If you don’t need all-wheel drive or moderate towing capacity, it’s often a less-expensive, more practical alternative to three-row crossovers. If you don’t need as much room, especially in the third row, a Mazda5 does it for thousands less.

Lineup

Transit Connect offers Van (cargo) and Wagon (passenger) versions, two wheelbases and three trim levels. A 169-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder is standard, a 178-hp (on premium fuel) 1.6-liter turbo four optional on short-wheelbase only ($795); a CNG conversion is available for some 2.5 models. All come with a six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive.

XL is the base model (Van $22,330/Wagon $25,185). Add $1,000 for long-wheelbase on Van. XL comes with vinyl upholstery, air conditioning, power front windows, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, 4-way manual front seats, sliding side doors, 180-degree swinging rear doors, 16-inch steel wheels (with full-size spare), AM/FM stereo, aux-in and 12-VDC ports and trip computer. Vans include cargo tie-down hooks; Wagons include side and rear glass, seatback map pockets, map lights, center console, 6-way driver seat, rear air conditioning controls, day/night rearview mirror and rear liftgate.

XL options include liftgate for Van or barn doors for Wagon. Van options include rear side door glass ($35/side) and rear door windows ($295). Available on most XL are Crew chief telematics ($925), power heated mirrors ($130), rear window defrost ($150), electric windshield defrost ($375), reverse park sensors ($295), trailer pack ($395), 6-way manual driver seat ($95), cruise control ($225), MyKey ($5) and LED cargo area lighting ($70). An XL Taxi package ($1650) includes AM/FM/CD 4-speaker stereo, 180-degree swing rear doors, heated power mirrors, power front and second-row windows, longer legroom second seat/no third row, rear ventilation controls, electric rear defrost and the option of School Bus Yellow paint.

XLT Van ($23,855) adds cloth upholstery, full carpeting, map lights, CD player, 4.2-inch MFD, body-color front bumper and many of the XL options come standard. The XLT Wagon ($24,170: less than XL because this is five-seat short-wheelbase) comes with 60/40 split folding removable second-row seat and adds an acoustic laminated windshield, rear camera, overhead glasses holder and observation mirror, and body-color rear bumper, side moldings and door handles. Long-wheelbase Wagon ($26,710) gets the seven-seat configuration, and both XLT Wagon offer a choice of rear liftgate or doors.

XLT options include automatic headlights, cornering fog lights, leather upholstery, front and rear park sensors ($495), rain-sensing wipers, 16-inch alloy wheels ($495) and dual-zone front climate control ($275).

Titanium Wagon ($29,185) includes leather upholstery, three-zone air conditioning, heated front seats, power driver seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, auto-dimming inside mirror, cornering lights, alloy wheels, aux-in and USB ports, SYNC, body-color power-folding mirrors with wideangle elements, backup camera and rain-sensing wipers. Options include privacy glass ($435), overhead rear storage ($95), stereo/MyFordTouch/navigation options ($350-970), 17-inch alloys ($420) and front/rear park sensors ($495).

Standard safety equipment includes front, front-side and side-curtain airbags for all seats, tire-pressure monitors, electronic stability control, antilock brakes with brake assist.

Safety options include MyKey, front/rear park sensors, rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers.

Walkaround

A forward wedge to disguise a basic box with an elongated nose is used by every van maker, and the Transit Connect is no different. When function trumps form options are limited.

Even absent the blue oval this grille is easy to identify as a Ford, not unlike a Focus or Escape. Aesthetics depend on model, as painted bumpers and fog lights are more interesting than the plain versions purposely designed to fend off fence posts, loading docks and other vans that commercial vehicles seem to encounter regularly.

All Wagons are all glass that’s high relative the seats, an excellent reason to strongly consider the optional privacy glass heavier window tint: Better glare-control year round and a better-looking dark blade down the side. Vans can be ordered with glass in passenger or both side doors, which could be handy for interior visibility, camping or if you plan to carry hounds. The signal repeater on the fender gives broader coverage than on the end of the mirror.

Side mirrors have integral wide-angle elements and can be folded on all; where not standard mirror-heat is optional. Titanium models get power-folding mirrors to automatically retract when you lock it, not a bad idea with flat-sided vehicles.

The rear overhang is short, the rear window deep and the bumper close to flat, so it’s easy to back up; with a camera or park sensors you can handily leave a gap of no more than an inch or two. Every version except Titanium offers the choice of a liftgate our six-foot-plus correspondent easily stood beneath or 180-degree-swing cargo doors. Liftgates come with a rear wiper, cargo doors offer the option.

Save the Titanium, steel wheels are standard and aluminum optional on all but XL. Regardless of wheel material or diameter every Transit Connect includes a full-size, not necessarily cosmetically-matching, full-size spare tire. And the wheels and tires are lighter than most crossover sizes, making it easier to store a set of winter tires.

Interior

The Transit Connect is appropriately appointed inside whether you’re hauling appliances and parts, people and luggage or friends and relatives on heated leather. It will feel familiar to almost any Ford owner, and the control and instrument layout is similar to Focus, Fusion and Escape. You wouldn’t be out of line thinking it a larger, taller Focus wagon.

A huge windshield far forward of the driver reminds of a Class A motorhome or Volkswagen’s 21st-century Beetle; you may not be able to touch any part of it from the driver’s seat, and in wintry climes the electric windshield defroster can save time and fuel. Big visors swing to cover the side windows as well, but doing so could leave the other front seat occupant in it and there is no heavy-tint band along the top.

Front seats are comfortable, moreso the more adjustments they have. We can’t speak to a delivery driver jumping in and out all day, though we did plenty of it without seeing any obvious hindrance. With the tilt/telescoping wheel’s decent travel, most should find a good driving position.

Middle-row seat cushions are contoured in even thirds, the outer backrests a bit softer than the middle hiding an armrest. Head and legroom here rivals full-size SUVs and there are few vehicles easier to install or load child seats in, especially if there’s another vehicle 18 inches away. Simple slots hold belts out of the way when needed, and the release moves the seat down and forward for third-row access or full cargo space.

Third-row seats have big flip-up headrests and head and legroom on par with most family sedans; you can put two adults back here and they’ll only feel slighted in mind, not body. Unlike the second-row, these recline partially, and they slide fore and aft to best balance cargo area and people-room required.

Folding the third-row requires first flipping the cushion, then dropping the backrest. Panels on the backrest then flip over to effect a flat floor to the folded middle row. The seats-down cargo floor doesn’t extend all the way to the liftgate, the gap around half-a-foot, but does yield a level, flat floor more than six-feet long at console-top height.

The Van holds 104 (short wheelbase) or 129 (lwb) cubic feet of cargo behind the seats, more with the passenger seat folded. The short-wheelbase five-seat wagon holds 46.9 behind the second row and 77 behind the first row, while the lwb Wagon is 15.7-19.8 behind the third row, 58.9 as a five-seater and 104.2 behind front seats. Those numbers compare favorably with larger, heavier, thirstier three-row crossovers like Ford’s Explorer (21/43.8/80.7) or Dodge’s Durango (17.2/47.7/84.5). The low floor height and sliding side doors offer easier loading, especially for youngsters, and that space can be filled with real cargo, not just balloons or flowers, with payloads ranging from about 1200 to 1620 pounds.

Standard analog instruments in hexagonal housings are augmented by a small display between them, all easily viewed through the four-spoke wheel. Climate controls and ancillary switches are quick to master, and while the logic was straightforward, the small touchscreen and buttons, reach to it and none-too-quick response couldn’t match ProMaster City’s UConnect system. Both the proper handbrake and shifter are easy to reach.

An overhead storage tray holds a lot of papers or items larger than a gum pack, but remember you can see only through holes in the bottom and contents may shift during your drive. There are also map-lights, glasses holder, wide-angle mirror to monitor rear passengers and assist handles up there.

There is also good storage in the door pockets, glovebox, center console, sub-floor bin and optional overhead bins just aft and above the front seats. Only the rubber coin-holder between the two primary cupholders that always came up with our water bottle, can or coffee seemed an afterthought.

Driving Impressions

Connect is easy to drive and despite its room drives like a car with a great view.

The 2.5-liter bring 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque to a 4000-pound party, fine for buzzing around town or highway cruising but heavier loads and hills will require some rpm to make the needed power. Expect adequate acceleration, but not the same as a 2.5-liter Mazda5 or V6 powered alternative.

A turbocharged 1.6-liter EcoBoost four is available, except for seven-seat wagons where the additional power (178 hp/184 lb-ft) and quieter demeanor would be most welcome. This delivers the best performance, and if you’re not flogging it from traffic light to light, a small bump in fuel economy over the 2.5. Where it’s available we’d recommend the $795 option.

Either engine is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission. Gear changes are smooth and on-demand, the sport mode getting the most of the 2.5 without adding significant noise. It can be shifted manually but only in sport mode, and gas-pedal response in reverse was enthusiastic in our Wagon, bobbing some passenger heads.

EPA ratings are 21/29 for the Van 2.5, 20/28 for Wagon 2.5 and 22/30 for the 1.6 regardless of application. We managed almost 30 in a driver-only seven-seat wagon on a highway leg, and about 20 in town; we’d anticipate low-20 averages for most urban and suburban use.

Unlike its competition the Transit Connect uses disc brakes all around. Stops are safe and stable, and they proved more consistent bounding down winding hillsides than any other Ford people-mover we’ve driven recently.

Electric-assist steering delivers quick response and effortless maneuvering, road feel is better than some electric-assist systems but not as good as a ProMaster City or the Mazda5.

Since it’s derived from the same basis as the Focus and Escape, and weighs 500 pounds less than most three-row crossovers and minivans, the Transit Connect feels relatively light and agile. A low center of gravity helps and roll is well controlled for a six-foot-high box, so you can push to the limits of tire adhesion in predictable fashion.

Ride quality is similar to or better than many vehicles that carry this much weight, and it does ride better with more people than one. Only some freeway expansion joints introduced a pitter-patter that could get annoying, but that’s not unique to the Transit Connect and varies a lot by wheelbase. The Van can handle 400 pounds more than the Wagon, but the Wagon has the better ride quality. The wagon also has additional insulation and is notably quieter than the Van; few-hour rides never fatigued us, though wind noise does begin to seep in around 65 so West Texas speeds will be louder.

Connect is rated to tow 2000 pounds with the tow package (either engine) with frontal area limit of 20 square feet and trailer brakes recommended. That’s sufficient for a small utility trailer, motorcycle or personal watercraft, but check all the weight limits before you fill it with people and add a trailer.

Summary

The Transit Connect is viable cargo van or alternative people-mover, built more for those who value function more than form but still want some amenities or leather upholstery. For most crossover buyers the Wagon is a more practical solution; indeed it is a genuine minivan even though Ford says it isn’t.

The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
