2010 Ford Transit Connect Review

Unique compact work van

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Ford Transit Connect is a new type of compact work van that is available as a two- passenger cargo vehicle or a five-passenger wagon in two trim levels: XL and XLT. Powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a mandatory four-speed automatic transmission, the Ford Transit Connect has front-wheel drive and a maximum payload of 1,600 pounds.

Small but versatile, the Ford Transit Connect combines a compact body size, cargo-moving capabilities, and good fuel economy (22 mpg city / 25 mpg highway), making it the best small van for many businesses. Of special note, the Transit Connect has a customizable cargo area that can be specially configured. Often used for public transport purposes, the Ford Transit Connect is can be converted into a taxi with a spacious interior. Although the van lacks superior styling, it is extremely versatile, functional, and practical.

Sporting a short wheelbase and a tall cargo area, the Ford Transit Connect may look a bit awkward. Cargo configurations have steel panels in place of rear-side and rear windows.
