Ford Transit Connect dimensions

You're here to find out the Ford Transit Connect dimensions and you've made a good choice because the small Transit is one of the best little vans on the market.

Before you get started, this is an article on the dimensions for the Transit Connect that is built by Ford. If you don't know what we mean by that then here's a little explanation. For years, Ford has built its own Transit Connect up until 2024 when they teamed up with the Volksagen Caddy to share platforms. This guide refers to the Ford Transit Connect dimensions for the second generation van, sold from 2013 to 2024. More specifically these are the dimensions for the last update - vehicles from 2019 onwards.

Ford Transit Connect dimensions overview

The Transit Connect comes in a few different sizes as well as types of van. This article is focused on the panel van, but there are also Kombi and dual cabin vans.

The panel van comes in two different wheelbase lengths giving the van a total length from between 4.42m and 4.82m. There's just one height of the Transit Connect in the second generation van, and unsurprisingly it has just one width as well.

Typically the most asked questions about the Ford Transit Connect dimensions are the following:
