About Ford Transit Connect
Since 2002, Ford has been marketing a compact panel van under the name Ford Transit Connect. The model line was developed by Ford of Europe, and it featured a dedicated commercial vehicle platform in place of sedan-based vans (such as the Ford Escort and Ford Courier vans). Between the Ford Transit Courier Light All-Terrain Vehicle and the Ford Transit Custom Light Commercial Vehicle/Multi-Passenger Vehicle, this model line is the second-smallest vehicle in the Ford Transit range. Passenger-oriented models of the Ford Transit are marketed as the Ford Tourneo Connect in Europe. These models have rear seats and side windows, and they are similar to other variants of the Ford Transit.
Since the 2010 model year, the first and second generations of the Ford Transit Connect have been brought into the North American market. In order to get around the “chicken tax” of 25% that is placed on imported light trucks[1,] all of the examples have been imported as passenger vans, and then the cargo vans have been converted to their intended configuration after they have been imported. The Transit Connect does not have a direct predecessor in the area; the vehicle that came the closest to matching its size was the standard-length Ford Aerostar cargo van, which was manufactured until 1997 before going out of production.
On March 18, 2010, Canada Post and Ford Motor Company made the announcement that Canada Post would replace their aging fleet of Grumman LLV vehicles with a fleet of Ford Transit Connect vans. The versions that were sold in RHD markets already had the tooling necessary for right-hand drive, but all of Canada Post’s Transit Connects are left-hand drive.
Ford markets the Ford Transit Connect Wagon as a replacement for the Ford Crown Victoria LWB for use in fleet applications, such as taxi service (discontinued in 2011). Modifications made to the vehicle for use as a taxi include moving the rear seat back several inches (to increase legroom and to make room for the installation of a partition), installing rear-seat climate controls, and painting the vehicle school bus yellow.
In 2011, the Ford Transit Connect was one of the three vehicles being considered for the New York City Taxi of Tomorrow bid. The other two vehicles being considered were the Karsan V-1 and the Nissan NV200. The bid was for a potential 10-year contract to supply the city with taxicabs exclusively.
