2015 Ford Transit Connect Overview

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 20, 2014

Marketed mainly to business operators, the Transit Connect is an affordably priced tall minivan with efficient four-cylinder power and fine maneuverability in urban settings. That formula holds some appeal in the personal market too, as witnessed by the availability of a leather-lined seven-passenger variant.

What's New For 2015

Completely redesigned just last year, the Transit Connect continues with minimal updates.

Choosing Your Ford Transit Connect

From the front, the Transit Connect bears a passing resemblance to the popular Escape crossover, so it's not as industrial-looking as other work vans. Standard bodies can hold up to 106 cubic-feet of cargo, and the extended wheelbase available on select models bumps the tally to 131. You're good to carry 1,600 pounds inside and tow up to 2,000 pounds behind you. To be sure, these are light-duty figures, which we expect from a front-drive, car-based vehicle. Every Transit Connect has dual sliding doors and your choice of a liftgate or swing-out rear doors.

All versions start out with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 169 horsepower that returns 24 mpg in combined driving. Optional on standard-wheelbase models is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that provides 178 horsepower along with slightly better fuel economy. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Cargo models seat two up front, while wagon versions can handle five or seven passengers depending on the trim level:

XL Cargo

Comes equipped for duty with vinyl seats, a rubberized floor covering, 16-inch steel wheels and a basic two-speaker sound system. You do, however, get air conditioning and power locks and front windows.

XL Wagon

Available only with the extended wheelbase, the XL Wagon adds three-row seating for seven, power second-row windows and a front console.

XLT Cargo

Adds cloth seats, body-color bumpers, fog lamps, power heated mirrors, cruise control, an in-dash display screen, overhead storage and a CD player.

XLT Wagon

Offers seating for five, or seven with the extended wheelbase, along with a rearview camera, rear climate control and rear privacy glass.

Titanium Wagon

The ultimate passenger Transit Connect offers leather seating for seven, power heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlamps, adaptive cornering fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding mirrors, alloy wheels and a four-speaker sound system with Ford’s Sync voice command system.

Several car-like options are available on the Transit Connect, including a fixed panoramic sunroof, satellite and HD radio, parking sensors and a navigation system that's bundled with the MyFord Touch infotainment interface. There's also a telematics system, Crew Chief, designed specifically for fleet operators.

CarsDirect Tip

The latest Transit Connect is surprisingly civilized inside, so the entry-level XL will suffice for most commercial uses. If you're looking for a personal vehicle, take note: the Titanium Wagon will cost you far less than a similarly equipped mainstream minivan.
