Ford Transit Connect

The Transit Connect (TC) is minicargo, and unrelated to the larger Transit. In the U.S. market the TC has two generations:

  1. 2010-2013. 2L I4 gas engine, 4spd trans. Sometimes preferred because all 1st gens in N.A. were high roof models.
  2. 2014-present. 2.5LI4 or 1.6L EcoBoost.

The TC appears to have either a 150A or “Heavy Duty” 220A or 230A alt; this rating is written on the alt and may be noted on the window sticker.1) Aftermarket alts are available with up to 270A ratings.
