Ford Transit Connect
The Transit Connect will come to the U.S. as a fuel-efficient alternative to a range of work vehicles from E-series vans to the Ford Crown Victoria large sedan.

In later years, Ford may introduce a version of the Transit Connect intended for family use, but the first ones will be targeted strictly at the commercial market

At this year's New York Auto Show, for instance, Ford showed off a Transit Connect customized to function as a futuristic taxi. Its four-cylinder engine might have once seemed too weak for the commercial market. But with plumbers, bakers and cab drivers fretting over gas prices, the Transit Connect could be a hit.
