Comparison Review


Comfort
The Ford Transit Connect will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Savana 3500.

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 GMC Savana 3500 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Transit Connect, which has a much lower MSRP.

Both the GMC Savana 3500 and the Ford Transit Connect have similar Destination Charges.
