What Kind of Cargo Van Should You Be Driving Around Painesville, OH?

The answer is a Ford cargo van, and you have two reliable options waiting for you at Preston Ford on West Center Street in Burton, OH: Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect. While both are cargo or passenger vans, they gain their distinctions through on-road efficiency, the number of seats or cargo capacity, and so on. Depending on your needs, you may end up more drawn to one Ford van over the other as you learn more from your northern Ohio Ford dealer.

While the Ford Transit and Transit Connect both add in plenty of avenues for customization, they differ in four areas: seating, power, fuel economy, and payload. These differences will allow drivers north of us in Chardon to pinpoint what matters to them in a cargo van. Is it how many miles per gallon you'll get for highway commuting or how much payload your van can support at one time? Check out the differences and see if they make it easier to decide which of the two Ford vans would better serve you.

  • Seating: The Ford Transit is the bigger model and, therefore, offers more passenger seating. Up to 15 people can reside in the Ford Transit compared to seven in the Ford Transit Connect.
  • Payload: The Ford Transit displays up to 487.2 cubic-feet of cargo capacity, which equals out to 4,640 pounds of maximum payload over the 1,570-pound payload in the Ford Transit Connect.
  • Efficiency: Fuel economy is where the Ford Transit Connect shines. Its 24-mpg city and 29-mpg highway fuel savings tower over what the Ford Transit can hope for when traveling through Chagrin Falls, OH.
  • Power: Given that it was designed to be the more durable and power-packed option of the two, it's no surprise the Ford Transit engine unleashes a higher maximum horsepower and torque combo than the Ford Transit Connect.
