The Ford Transit Connect Wagon is something new for America. Classified as a light truck, the Transit represents a shift in how small businesses operate in terms of transportation. In the past, American relied mostly on vehicles such as the Chevrolet HHR or going as far as a full-size Ford E-Series van. As gas prices remain high, Ford has made the smart decision to import it from Europe targeting American small business owners. It is fuel efficient - with a choice of 2 four-cylinder diesel engines - and can effectively utilize space.
The longer wheel-base version is the only available size for the US, but this should be what most customers will prefer. Overall, it is an affordable business vehicle that could change and improve the operations of small businesses in America.
