2020 Ford Transit Connect Overview

The Ford Transit Connect is a compact van similar to the Nissan NV200 Cargo and RAM ProMaster City. The Transit Connect’s lineup receives a few light changes for 2020.

Ford offers the Transit Connect in Wagon and Cargo Van specifications, and in standard- and long-wheelbase variants. The passenger-oriented Wagon trims seat 7 people and come only with the long-wheelbase specification, while the Cargo Van versions seat 2 and provide a maximum of 127.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity. You also get the option of 180-degree barn-style rear doors or a rear liftgate.

All Transit Connects come standard with a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, making 150 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque, bolted to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Fleet customers have the option of upgrading to a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine with 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque paired with a 6-speed automatic. The Transit Connect is exclusively front-wheel-drive (FWD). It's rated at 24 mpg city, 27 highway, and 25 combined for the 2.0-liter engine, and 20/27/22 for the 2.5-liter.

The Transit Connect’s trims include XL, XLT, and Titanium, the last of which is only available in the Wagon specification. The base XL comes with black door handles, 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, a full-size spare tire, vinyl seats, dual-zone front climate control, a heavy-duty alternator, a 4.2-inch LCD infotainment system, and manual-sliding rear doors. Nicer trims come with wireless charging, front fog lights, keyless entry, cloth or leather seating, and an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For 2020, newly standard features include automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers, while power-folding and heated exterior mirrors come with the XLT and Titanium trims.

On the safety front, the Transit Connect comes standard with a reversing camera. Ford Co-Pilot360 is optional on the XL and standard on the XLT and Titanium trims. It bundles blind-spot monitoring, automatic high-beam headlights, lane-keep assist, lane-keep alert, driver-awareness alert, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. There’s no public crash-testing data on the Transit Connect as of this writing, but that’s not unusual for utilitarian vehicles like this one.

The Transit Connect melds commercial needs with modern technology, design, and a tidy footprint for easy city driving.
