Reviewed by Automotive on

Vehicle Overview

The 2013 Ford Transit Connect cargo van offers 130 cubic feet of cargo space, appealing to small businesses and individual customers. The Transit Connect is powered by a four-cylinder engine that produces 136 horsepower and has an EPA-estimated 21/27 mpg city/highway. Since the Transit Connect will be completely redesigned for the next model year, no enhancements have been made for the 2013 model.

Ford offers the 2013 Ford Transit Connect in four models, the XL Van, XLT Van, XLT Wagon, and XLT Wagon Premium. Standard features include an integrated blind-spot mirror, rear privacy glass, air conditioning, cloth upholstery, and tilt and telescopic steering wheel. The XLT adds body-colored bumpers, rear window defroster, heated mirrors, map lights, full power accessories, and a 12-volt cargo area power point. The Wagon model adds foglights, chrome grille trim, rear seat carpeting, and a four-speaker audio system. The top of the line model receives a unique exterior trim, rear cargo door pocket storage, and flip-open glass windows.

Optional features for the 2013 Ford Transit Connect include a compressed natural gas Engine Prep package, rear parking sensors, rearview camera, Sync voice-command for phone and audio, as well as the Ford Work Solutions Crew Chief vehicle tracking system. For those who want the versatility to carry passengers and still have full cargo capacity, the Ford Transit Connect can handle almost any task thrown its way.
