2020 Ford Transit Connect Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Ford Transit Connect?

Offered in cargo- and passenger-carrying forms, the Transit Connect is Ford’s compact van. The long-wheelbase passenger version has three rows and room for up to seven people. The Transit Connect has minivan-style sliding doors and is powered by a gas four-cylinder engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Ram ProMaster City.

What’s New on the 2020 Ford Transit Connect?

Automatic headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers are now standard.

What Features in the 2020 Ford Transit Connect Are Most Important?

Standard features on the XL passenger van include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors.

Available features include dual-zone automatic air conditioning, a 6.5-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, navigation, wireless device charging, leather upholstery, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, push-button start, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and lane-keeping assist.

Should I Buy the 2020 Ford Transit Connect?

Even in passenger-carrying form, the Transit Connect more closely resembles a utility van than one of the minivans offered by competing automakers. It’s not as easy as a traditional minivan to convert from passenger- to cargo-carrying duty, but it does offer good passenger space, a low load floor and numerous versions to fit specific needs.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
