 2021 Ford Transit vs. 2021 Ford Transit Connect | Inverness, FL

Do you need a van for contracting, deliveries, or people hauling in Inverness, Florida? Ford offers a pair of great commercial models: the 2021 Ford Transit and the 2021 Ford Transit Connect. The Transit is the van to buy if you need an abundance of power and space, while the Transit Connect gives you a more compact, efficient option. Here's a detailed comparison to help your business choose between the two.

Exterior Size

The imposingly sized 2021 Transit comes in Cargo Van, Crew Van, or Passenger Van trims. Its three wheelbase length options range from 130 to 147.6 inches. You can also choose three roof heights ranging from 82.3 to 108.6 inches.

The smaller 2021 Transit Connect is available as a Cargo Van or Passenger Wagon. Its two wheelbase options measure 104.8 and 120.6 inches. The Transit Connect is also about 9 inches narrower than the Transit - perfect for navigating cramped alleys, small parking areas, and crowded streets.

Interior Space

If passenger space is the name of the game for your business, the Ford Transit can fit anywhere from five to 15 people depending on the configuration you choose. The Ford Transit Connect offers seats for five, six, or seven passengers.

For cargo purposes, the Transit is downright cavernous, swallowing anywhere from 246.7 to 487.2 cubic feet of equipment, packages, or luggage. The Transit Connect is no slouch either, giving you either 104.8 or 127.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo space.

Power and Efficiency

If power is your priority, that's exactly what the Transit delivers. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine puts out 275 horsepower and can tow up to 6,400 pounds. The available 3.5-liter EcoBoost® offers 310 horsepower and up to 6,900 pounds of towing capability.

The Transit Connect is designed for greater efficiency. The standard 2.0-liter engine makes 162 horsepower and gives you up to 24 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.* You can also opt for an available 2.5-liter engine rated at 169 horsepower and as much as 20 city mpg or 27 highway mpg.*
