2020 Ford Transit Connect review: Our expert's take

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.

I hate mine

So many things to write...I always see smoke coming from the engine no one knows why and nothing is wrong with it...A tiny mirror that you can't see in...The back seats will not go down to make a level space but the van book says it does...book lie...my van is TOO small for me the sales person to blame, he showed me a 7 passage van on his computer because they didn't have one on the lot...but a 5 passages van was delivered with a cracked back window they refused to fix. So I am stuck with a van that is too small for my family and not enough room for groceries

5.0

good value

Great option instead of a SUV. FWD is fine with good tires for traction and it has clearance comparable to a SUV. It isn't as expensive and has enough options to choose from. The mileage is around 26 @ 80 mph.

5.0

Delivery van

Great delivery and catering van. It was just what we were looking for. The style, size, drive ability and value is great! I would recommend this to all who is looking.
