The 2013 Ford Transit Connect vs. The 2013 Nissan NV

If you are in the market for a new cargo-carrying workhorse to add to your business, then look no further than the 2013 Ford Transit Connect at Terry’s Ford in Peotone, your local Bradley area Ford dealership. Featuring a sleek exterior and an accommodating interior, the 2013 Ford Transit Connect is a solid choice for transporting your everyday cargo. Although there are other options to entertain, such as the 2013 Nissan NV, here at Terry’s Ford we offer you several reasons why the 2013 Transit Connect should be your next cargo van choice.

Top Reasons To Choose The 2013 Ford Transit Connect


  • Overall Reliability: A 2012 survey taken by J.D Power and Associates reveals that Ford vehicles are more reliable than Nissan vehicles. They surveyed owners of three-year-old vehicles for long-term dependability, and Ford was ranked at 8th in reliability and Nissan at 18th.
  • Safe Construction: A three-dimensional high-strength frame is the basis of a safety cell construction that surrounds the passenger compartment of the 2013 Ford Transit Connect. This provides extra impact protection for passengers as well as a strong mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. Drivers will find that the 2013 Nissan NV is constructed on a body-on-frame design, which in turn offers no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.
  • Protects Precious Cargo: No cargo is more precious than human passengers, especially the little ones. The 2013 Ford Transit Connect comes equipped with standard child safety locks to prevent children from opening rear doors. Such looks are not present in the 2013 Nissan NV. 
  • Short Stopping Distance: When cruising along, the 2013 Ford Transit Connect can go from 70 to 0 MPH in a matter of 184 feet while the 2013 Nissan NV will take longer at 192 feet.
