    I just recently started driving a ford transit connect. At first I though I would hate it, but after getting it loaded out, its not really as bad as I had myself convinced it would be. I cant haul a lot of equipment but I do service 95% of the time. I have a full sized E-350 at the shop (the truck I used to drive) that I use for installs. If I was a one man show or far from the shop, I would be in trouble. I do ride right at the rated load capacity though. Ill see if I can get some pics.

    Can you stand up in the back in those? I have seen them and they look to be tall. Ford is also making one called the transit (not "transit connect", just "transit")which is a full sized van that looks cool. If you get the high roof version you can easily stand up in the back. I like vans but that is my biggest gripe, having to hunch over inside of them. At least with a truck, I can easily access what I need.

    No you cant stand up in a transit connect. But I have found that the rear is compact enough that I can reach everything without getting into the van.

    FORD is also redesigning the TRANSIT CONNECT into a slightly bigger van than the current version for 2014.

    To go along with the new large MODEL TRANSIT replacing the current E Model vans

    In 2014 Chevy will have a rebadge Nissan to compete with the Ford transit connect.

    Too bad they could not have brought back an updated ( modernized ) version of the Astro / Safari

    It may be a good truck but it is very hard on the eyes. That thing is just ugly. They could have made the front end a lot better looking.

    Yes it does take a bit of getting use to , RAM are also supposedly upgrading the MINI Commercial van to get away from the passenger van look for 2015.
