Ford has announced the launch of its European Transit van in North America. With front-wheel-drive, a 2.0-liter engine, 135 cu. ft. of cargo space, and a 1,600-lb. payload capacity, it may be just the answer for those small businesses which need something bigger than a station wagon but don’t necessarily need a full-sized van.
The Transit Connect has been available in other parts of the world since 2003, and more than 600,000 of them have been sold. It will be introduced this week at the Chicago Auto Show, and will go on sale this summer.
