Vans are different from the average automobile because of their ability to carry impressive amounts of cargo. Large commercial fleets, small businesses, and even hobbyists who require extra cargo space are all drawn towards vans. Additionally, vans display some of the finest craftsmanship the industry has to offer and are often touted for being constructed with rigid frames and high-quality materials. Although there is a wide spectrum of manufacturers that produce various vans, one manufacturer, in particular, is as equally as recognizable for its vans as its trucks. Taking a closer look at the 2021 Ford Transit vs 2021 Ford Transit Connect reveals an interesting scenario. Both of these vehicles are designed for a similar kind of driver and or business, but one is considerably smaller and cheaper than the other. The amount of cargo space and the passenger capacity will be entirely dependent on which model the customer opts for.
Starting with the Ford Transit, it has an MSRP of $34,510 for the base model Cargo Van. This is then followed by three additional models: the Crew Van, Passenger Van XL, and lastly, the Passenger Van XLT. The 2021 Transit is the best choice for any fleet that requires more cargo or passenger space possible in a still relatively efficient package. The smaller Transit Connect starts at an MSRP of $24,694. Although the price tag is lower than the regular Transit, that is because of the Transit Connect’s smaller size coupled with its less powerful powertrain options.
This base model Transit Connect is known as XL Cargo Van and is followed by XLT Cargo Van. There are also two passenger-oriented versions: the XL Passenger Wagon, XLT Passenger Wagon, and the Titanium Passenger Wagon. While the Transit Connect is smaller and less powerful than the Transit, it is significantly more efficient and is a great choice for light-duty and urban driving. All of these models are prime examples of the quality that Ford builds its vehicles with, and each vehicle is capable in its own ways.
