The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
4.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Ford Transit Connect is a practical, versatile small van, while its passenger version, the Wagon, is a smaller, perhaps smarter substitute for a full-size minivan. The 2018 Ram ProMaster City makes a smart choice for fleet operators based on its low price and high functionality.
