2015 Chevy City Express vs 2015 Ford Transit Connect
Just because minivans are getting less popular in the industry, doesn’t mean there is any less demand for a vehicle that can handle the types of jobs minivans were designed for. One of the reasons for their decline in popularity is the birth of the crossover utility vehicle, but crossovers are built for transporting people, not so much geared towards the cargo aspect. That’s not to say the can’t, but vehicles like the Chevy City Express are much better equipped to handle the job. We wanted to take a look at two of these vehicles geared towards moving cargo, so we compared the 2015 Chevy City Express vs 2015 Ford Transit Connect.
Advantages of the 2015 Chevy City Express
These smaller cargo vans are fairly new to the market, with the City Express just recently going on sale for the first time last fall, and the Transit Connect having debuted just a couple of years earlier. But already, the 2015 Chevy City Express has a huge leg up over its established rival, in several different areas of specifications. Let’s start by looking at cargo capacity, as that’s clearly the most important aspect of a cargo van. The City Express can fit nearly 20 extra cubic feet of your stuff in its cargo hold, making it the more efficient cargo-hauling vehicle.
Speaking of efficiency, you’ll also save some change at the gas pump by driving the City Express around town, as it utilizes 0.4 l/100km less on city streets. While it has a bit of a deficit in horsepower, it does way more than 200-pounds less than the 2015 Ford Transit Connect, which will certainly close that power gap if not expunge it completely.
