Ford Transit Connect 

Capacity & Performance

  • There are more configurations for the Ford Transit Connect than in the Ram ProMaster City, so you can have more options to get the work van you need to get the job done.
  • Traveling from Biddeford with a lot of cargo? No worries, especially in the Transit Connect, which can offer up to 145.8 cubic feet of cargo space, while the ProMaster City offers a maximum of 131.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • Both models offer 2,000 pounds of towing, so you can feel free to haul the loads that your business calls for.
  • The Ford Transit Connect offers a standard 2.0-liter GDI engine and an optional EcoBlue Diesel engine. The ProMaster City offers a 2.4-liter Tigershark Multiair 2 engine and a 3.6-liter engine, but neither of those is a diesel option.
  • It's no secret that the weather here in Maine gets a bit cold, which is why it helps to have the Ford-exclusive Quickclear Electric Windshield Defroster for faster so you can get going.
  • The destination charge for a Transit Connect is lower than the ProMaster City, so if you have to order a specific work van or wagon, you're going to spend more to have it delivered if you go with Ram.


  • Whether you commute from Sanford ME a lot or stay close to home, the Transit Connect costs less on the base trim level than the ProMaster City does.
  • Ford has the SYNC 3 Infotainment System, while the Ram brand offers Uconnect for app integration and music.
  • Both models offer you the option of a van or wagon body style for full versatility, but the Transit Connect offers a regular or extended wheelbase option.
  • You'll get more legroom and hip room in the Transit Connect than you will if you go for the ProMaster City, which is useful if you have a partner helping out.
  • When things get messy during your commute from Wells ME, the Transit Connect can be easier to clean with its vinyl seats, while the Ram ProMaster City gives you standard cloth seats.
  • A CD Player may seem like a given feature that all vehicles offer. However, you won't find it in the Ram ProMaster City like you will in the Ford Transit Connect.
  • Stay safe out there, especially if you opt for the base Transit Connect, which offers safety features that include Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. The Ram ProMaster City doesn't have these features listed as being available on the base trim level.
