Re: Instant Impression of the Transit Connect

It's a well done vehicle. Ford SHOULD have made the diesel EPA compliant and they would more than likely double sales. The Focus 2.0L gas engine doesn't do this van justice.

Re: Instant Impression of the Transit Connect

I'm sure that'll be a good seller. Hopefully they add more engine choices.

Me too. If anything they should allow the 2.5L I4 as an option, as I can't see a diesel anytime soon. All the reviews I've read, only one guy loaded up the Transit to capacity (1600lb payload, including weight of driver), and he clocked it at 21sec 0-60 with the standard 2.0L I4. At least it'll help in the traction department when the snow flies!
