Don't be deceived! The 2015 Ford Transit Connect XLT isn't the cargo van you've seen rolling down the road with florist or auto parts logos on it. Yes, we admit, the Transit Connect has its roots as a delivery vehicle and cargo van, but now Ford has produced a passenger version that is well-equipped and quite comfortable.

We found our September Richard's Ride from Lakeview Ford Lincoln provoked responses that ran the gamut. Some would look it up and down trying to arrive at a decision about it. Others loved it immediately. And others, well, weren't so warm on it. But, we say, if you're a small family looking for an economical, fuel efficient, comfortable hauler, the Transit Connect has to be on your test drive list.

Perhaps the most unexpected thing was the peppiness of the Transit Connect, with its EcoBoost engine. Check out more in our Richard's Ride video below.
