Lots of room for passengers and cargo, tight turning radius, lots of headroom. Service-vehicle look of the Transit Connect means easy admission to restricted events, as everyone thinks you’re delivering something.
Cranky navigation system, acceleration mostly theoretical.
This small truck/van was SCM’s primary people and cargo hauler during the Monterey weekend, and it worked very well. The rear cargo area swallowed our boxes of magazines, books and displays with room to spare. This little truck also has a very tight turning radius, which is great for the many U-turns SCM staffers made to get closer looks at hot cars. This was possibly the least-hot vehicle on the peninsula, but this truck was made for hauling lots of stuff, and it does that with aplomb if not excitement.
