A lot of observers were wondering what Ford was thinking when it debuted the Transit Connect compact cargo van in the U.S. market in 2008. It was based on a European van that had been roaming the streets across the Atlantic for eight years. But it seemed to strike the fancy of a number of American buyers looking for something nimbler and more fuel efficient than the fullsize E-Series vans, and suddenly, the Transit Connect has two competitors eager to peel off its small but growing U.S. market share. The new model, which debuted for 2014, builds on the popularity of the first model and adds more powerful, efficient powertrains, greater refinement, and, relatively speaking, more attractive styling. Driving the latest Transit Connect is hardly punishment, with carlike driving dynamics, and peppy performance from either the 1.6L EcoBoost or 2.5L naturally aspirated I-4. Oddly, the long-wheelbase passenger version cannot be ordered with the 1.6L EcoBoost; aside from that anomaly, the Transit Connect is a practical, garage-friendly package for families or small businesses.
