Transit Connect


Exceeds your needs

Minivans. SUVs. CUVs. The one-of-a-kind Ford Transit Connect is the right one to replace them all. Available as an XL or XLT Van and as an XL, XLT, or Titanium Wagon, it combines the room and versatility of a van with the efficiency of a large car. It’s right-sized and purpose-built to swallow cargo, sip gas and park in tight spaces. And it does it all while conveying a professional image designed to help you stand out in a crowd.

Delivers protection and reliability

Transit Connect is certified to Ford Light Commercial Vehicle Durability Standards – tested to 150,000 customer-equivalent miles.
