The Transit Connect Cargo Van is a compact, two-seater van built for carrying small loads around the city, so performance is not going to be explosive. Powering the Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van is a 2.0-liter engine; a naturally aspirated four-cylinder that offers linear power, but won't set the world on fire. 0-60 mph times are irrelevant in vans like the Ford Transit Connect, but you should know that it can tow up to 2,000 lbs and carry a maximum payload of 1,550 lbs in LWB configuration. You will be working the engine hard with a load on board, though.
The 2023 Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van is offered with a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated inline-four engine generating 162 hp and 144 lb-ft of torque. This engine powers the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. It provides just enough horsepower for the Ford Transit Connect Cargo Van to manage city driving, but it feels sluggish on the open road. Its lack of torque is felt when fully loaded.
