The Ford Transit Connect will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the RAM ProMaster 1500.

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).

The Ford Transit Connect carries a much lower Destination Charge than the RAM ProMaster 1500.
