Transit Connect

The Ford Transit Connect has an unfortunate name, but it’s one of my favorite new vehicles on the road these days.

Ford has been cookin’ with oil of late. Their upcoming Focus and Fiestas look to be competitive offerings, and the updates to the Fusion, Taurus and F-series trucks have all been solid.

But this car/truck thing is the closest I’ve seen to a modern and economical road trip hauler.

You could pack a lot of t-shirts in this sucker.

A hat tip to the delivery man that let me give it a once over and ask about fuel economy. (27 MPG on a good day, he said.)
