Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Built on the same platform as the Focus, Ford’s compact Transit Connect van is a versatile workhorse for either commercial or passenger use. Two lengths are offered, as well as two engine choices. Cargo capacity is impressive for the size, maneuverability is excellent, and towing is unsurpassed in the class.

What's New for 2017

Ford’s Sync 3 entertainment system was added to the lineup last year and is now standard on the Transit Connect Titanium model. Sync 3 features a 6.5-in touchscreen and navigation. Standard on both the 2017 Transit Connect Wagon Titanium and Wagon XLT is a six-way power driver’s seat, roof rails, automatic headlights, and reverse sensing. The Titanium trim level is now offered for the short wheelbase version.

Choosing Your Ford Transit Connect

The base 2.5-liter Duratec four-cylinder engine offers 169 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm, and delivers a combined fuel economy rating of 22 or 23 mpg, depending on trim level. A CNG/propane prep package is available.

An available 1.6L EcoBoost ups the horsepower slightly to 178 and the torque to 184. However, all that torque is available from 2,500 rpm. Combined fuel economy is 25 mpg. The EcoBoost is not available in all configurations.

All Transit engines are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox with Ford’s Select Shift feature. SelectShift allows either automatic operation or clutch-less manual shifting.

In Van trim, the Transit Connect can be economically configured as a business utility vehicle with seating for two. Ford conveniently offers upfitting from many providers, making it easy to get a work-ready vehicle straight from the dealer for professions such as contracting, HVAC, plumbing, catering, and others.

Wagon trim is for personal or family use with seating for up to seven. Available luxuries like leather seats, alloy wheels, and a panoramic roof create a very comfortable ride.

Van XL

The base model van is ready to work with standard climate control, a 12-volt power point, LED cargo lighting, and remote keyless entry with two fobs. Options include an upgraded stereo, a six-way manual driver’s seat, and a fold-flat passenger seat.

Ford Transit Connect


The XLT builds on the XL and adds a little more comfort with standard carpeted floor mats, a center console with cupholders and storage, vanity mirror, cruise control, and an additional 12-volt power point in the cargo area. Options include dual-zone automatic temperature control, auto-dimming rear view mirror, and upgraded stereo with satellite radio.

Ford Transit Connect

Wagon XL

The base passenger Wagon has more than enough standard features to make it a livable choice: front and rear climate control with A/C, 12-volt power points front and rear, remote keyless entry, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, six-way manual driver seat, and a four-way fold-flat front passenger seat. Options include stereo upgrades, aircraft style mid-vehicle overhead console, cruise control, and a cargo net kit.

Ford Transit Connect

Wagon XLT

The XLT builds on the XL and comes well-equipped with front and rear climate control, front and rear 12-volt power points, cruise control, carpets, and a full-width front row overhead storage shelf. Options included an upgraded stereo, premium second-row carpeted floor mats, a rear cargo area cover, and second row fold-flat bucket seats.

Ford Transit Connect

Wagon Titanium

Moving up to the Titanium package brings standard 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, cornering front fog lamps, power-adjustable heated mirrors, rain sensing wipers, dual-zone front climate control, and privacy windows. Second-row fold-flat buckets seats are also standard.

CarsDirect Tip

For a passenger vehicle, the added low-range torque of the EcoBoost engine will be greatly appreciated. But on a work vehicle that measures its value in return on investment, the EcoBoost might be an unnecessary luxury item.
