Introduction

The Ford Transit Connect is like a minivan only cooler, if you have mountain bikes or motorcycles or kayaks or dogs and stuff. Or like a minivan, only who-would-want-a-truck? It’s not likely to be in demand among soccer moms. But it’s well worth reviewing. Built on the Focus platform, it’s polished, flexible, thrifty and nimble. A lot of people need one and don’t know it.

Transit vans blend into the road scene, usually with signage from a tradesman. They make a compelling case for business. Ford brought the first Transit vans over from Europe, where small work vans are ubiquitous, and we’re finally catching on to the intelligence of them. If there weren’t a strong market, the Transit wouldn’t have competitors like the Chevrolet City Express, Ram ProMaster City, and Nissan NV200.

The vans are front-wheel drive, with two four-cylinder engines available: a 2.5-liter making 169 horsepower, or 1.6-liter turbo making 178 hp. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission.

It can tow up to 2000 pounds with the 2.5-liter engine and tow package; while payloads range up to 1270 pounds, which isn’t all that much.

There’s the Transit Connect and Transit Connect Wagon that seats up to seven, although with less room and comfort than a minivan. But the driver will love it, for its responsive handling and steering. It’s the most nimble and sporty three-row vehicle we’ve come across in a while.

The interior is definitely not cargo van-like; in front at least, the cabin feels like the Ford Focus, Fiesta or Escape. It’s tight and quiet inside. Lots of convenient buttons on the dash.

Different models get different fuel mileage, but you can figure on about 22 miles per gallon city, 29 highway, and 24 combined. A bit more for the 1.6-liter turbo than the 2.5-liter four. If you want to abandon gasoline altogether, natural gas and LPG models are available.

The Transit Connect has six airbags for driver and passenger, while the seven-passenger Wagon models have three-row airbags, and the five-passenger models have two-row curtain airbags. The NHTSA gives it five stars overall in crash testing, with four stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact.

All that’s new for 2017 is a roof rack.

Lineup

The Transit Connect Wagon comes as an XL, XLT, or Titanium trim levels, with a long wheelbase or short wheelbase in the XLT only. Prices start at about $20,000.

Keyless entry and power windows are standard. The XLT gets cruise control and heated power mirrors. Titanium gets leather and dual-zone automatic climate control. The XLT and Titanium can be equipped with a rearview camera, panoramic roof, and MyFord Touch with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, HD Radio, satellite radio, and USB port.

Walkaround

The Transit Connect looks like a small cargo van from the year 2017, with attention to aerodynamics.

The Transit Connect Wagon looks like a mini minivan from the year 2017, with attention to aerodynamics. We like it.

Interior

The combination of small-car interior and minivan high seating is cool. You think you’re stepping into a truck but when you get there it’s a car. And it is step and not climb, because the ride height is about the same as a car. And because the roof is so high, there’s plenty of headroom even with the elevated seat.

The comfort is surprisingly good, just not as good as a minivan. What we’re saying is we didn’t expect it to be half as good as a minivan, although we can’t really see why not, and it turned out to be three-fourths as good. The standard fabric upholstery is comfortable and breathable, so we don’t see the need to fancy it up with leather.

In the three-row Wagon, the second row is split 60/40 and there’s plenty of room for adults. It folds down beautifully: the seatbacks flip forward, the whole seat then folds forward and down into the floorwell, all with one pull. Now there’s room for cargo in the middle and passengers in the third row with legroom. Then they fold flat (the seats, not the passengers) and the cargo floor is flat.

There’s a big sliding door on each side, and a huge cargo opening at the rear. You can choose between a hatchback rear door or barn doors. With the hatchback, rearward vision is better because there’s no pillar.

Driving Impressions

The Transit Connect’s driving dynamics are more like a small car than a cargo van.

There’s some lag to the turbocharged 1.6-liter engine, but it’s still quicker than the standard 2.5-liter four.

Summary

If it works for you, it’s a great choice. But there’s competition worth checking out, from Chevy, Dodge and Nissan.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. 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.
