Minivans excel at hauling a family's worth of people and cargo, and when it comes time to move a child into a dorm room, they're a decent stand-in for something more dedicated, like a cargo van. But what if you want something that swaps the roles and emphasizes the van in minivan? That's where the Ford Transit Connect comes in.
Refreshed for the 2019 model year, the Ford Transit Connect offers a compelling package on paper, but the execution falls short. Having recently driven both the cargo and passenger variants, I found it's easy to tell where this vehicle's priorities lie.
Before sliding into the more family-friendly variant of Transit Connect, I find myself schlepping the cargo van variant from Michigan to Wisconsin and back, taking part in the great American pastime of interstate furniture hauling.
The Good The 2019 Ford Transit Connect is capacious and efficient, and packs some decent tech.
The Bad The transmission is bad, it’s loud inside and the ergonomics can get a little wonky.
The Bottom Line If you need a full-time van with a part-time focus on people-moving, the Transit Connect is a decent choice.
