KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 10/10/2012


The 2013 Ford Transit Connect is, along with the newish Fiesta and all-new Focus, the embodiment of the company's "One Ford" product philosophy. Designed and developed for European markets, the Transit Connect combines an upright, 2-box profile and expansive interior volume with a front-wheel-drive platform almost agricultural in its execution. The end result is an affordable and economical van/wagon with equal appeal to both commercial carriers and activity-oriented families. The 2013 Transit Connect may be the most singular lifestyle introduction since Toyota's launch of its Scion xB, and the most functional since VW's original Microbus.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're a small business, there are few vehicles more appropriate than the Ford Transit Connect. Easy to operate and economical, the Transit Connect has been a runaway success for commercial operators. And if you simply want to run away, the small van (or its wagon variant) will carry far more of your gear than you might imagine.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If your appetite for carrying or towing is massive, Ford's Transit Connect will come up short. And if you enjoy some level of refinement in your van or wagon, traditional minivans – even those now a decade old – can provide it in ways the Transit Connect never will.

What's New for 2013

The mobility package, making access easier for those with physical handicaps, has been updated by Ford's aftermarket partner, MobilityWorks. FYI: An all-new 2014 Transit Connect has been revealed, and while its launch date for the U.S. has not been formally announced it should arrive stateside in the second half of 2013.

Driving It Driving Impressions

With its tall roof and relatively narrow track, Ford's Transit Connect is far removed from its long-time predecessor in the cab industry, the Crown Victoria. But with a turning radius of just under 39 feet, and an overall width close to that of Ford's subcompact Focus, the Transit Connect proves appropriately nimble for short hauls, and generous in its interior volume for the long haul. Fill it with cargo, however, and the lack of a more contemporary engine/transmission combination becomes readily apparent. The Transit Connect's 136 horsepower is wheezy at speed, while the 128 lb-ft of torque (multiplied by a 4-speed automatic) comes up short when asked to propel almost 5,000 pounds of van and cargo.

Favorite Features

OPEN ARCHITECTURE
Although not offering stand-up headroom, the Transit Connect's upright and open architecture provides a convenient work station for the tradesman. And if your activity is recreational, the Transit Connect's small-box profile works beautifully as a fully functional base camp.

255-DEGREE SWING-OPEN REAR DOORS
At work or play, rear doors that fold completely out of the way make for much easier loading of cargo. Add to that the Transit Connect's low liftover height and cargo has rarely been more accessible.
