2017 Ford Transit Connect vs. 2016 Lincoln MKT Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Transit Connect than the Lincoln MKT. The Ford Transit Connect will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKT.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Transit Connect as you will with the Lincoln MKT, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Ford Transit Connect is clearly a better financial choice over the Lincoln MKT. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Transit Connect will cost more in transportation costs than the Lincoln MKT.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKT, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Transit Connect, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKT.

Drivetrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much less torque than the Lincoln MKT, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKT, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Transit Connect is significantly less powerful than the Lincoln MKT. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Transit Connect and the Lincoln MKT. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Transit Connect will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lincoln MKT.
