This smaller Ford passenger van has the conveniences of a minivan or a crossover SUV. With 21 – 22 miles per gallon in the city and up to 27 miles per gallon highway it’s a great option for families and small business owners that have merchandise they move around. We have many, many small business owners in Central Florida who participate in craft shows and outdoor festivals that this vehicle can be a fit for them to transport their merchandise from show to show. With year round out-door festivals this newest Ford vehicle is a perfect fit. The reviews so far on the 2014 Ford Transit Connect are very high for storage capacity and utility. People toting things to and from work and those with large families are raving about the seating capacity.”
