2012 Ford Transit Connect
2012 Ford Transit Connect
The Transit Connect is a purpose-built vehicle aimed at small-business owners, but it appeals as more than just a commercial vehicle. Offering 130 cubic feet of cargo volume accessed by wide-opening rear doors, the Transit Connect is easy to load because of its low floor and high roof. Available as either a two-seat cargo van or a four- or five-seat wagon with a folding second row, the Transit Connect is a versatile vehicle that can be adapted to several commercial uses. The 136-hp four-cylinder engine is matched to a four-speed automatic and prizes fuel economy over performance. Options include Crew Chief, an onboard device that tracks vehicle location, fuel economy, and idle time, plus vehicle diagnostics and maintenance capabilities. Until last year, the Transit Connect was available only as a commercial vehicle, but recently an XLT Premium wagon with seating for five was introduced. It is a good option for people who need to use their vehicle to haul people and yet still need the versatility and cargo capacity of a van, and it can also be ordered with a taxi package -- in fact, you may see some if you live in a large urban area such as Boston, Chicago, or New York. In addition, Ford has begun very limited production of the Transit Connect Electric, which is available only to fleet customers and is one of five electrified vehicles Ford plans to sell in the United States by the end of 2012.
2013 Ford Transit Custom Cargo Van Front Three Quarter
To make sure the newest European Ford commercial van can meet the demands of its hard-working customers, the automaker put it through a series of tests that included slamming the door in excess of 550,000 times.
2011 Ford Transit Connect Electric Front Three Quarter
Azure Dynamics, which builds electric-car drivetrains and an electric version of the Ford Transit Connect van, has filed for bankruptcy protection. The company laid off 120 employees in total, of which 55 were employed in Oak Park, Michigan.
2012 Ford Tourneo Custom Profile
Ford pulled the wraps off the production-ready Tourneo Custom passenger van today and it looks just like the Tourneo Custom Concept previewed at the Geneva Motor Show a couple weeks ago. The Tourneo Custom is a light-duty passenger van designed for overseas markets only.
2010 Ford Transit Econetic Front Three Quarter
It wasn’t much of a surprise when Ford announced that it would be bringing the Transit commercial van to North America to replace the venerable (and dated) Econoline/E-Series. Last updated in 1998, the E-Series can’t really hold a candle to new competition from Mercedes-Benz and Nissan, and upcoming competition from a Fiat-based Ram model. Today, Ford released a video showing that its been actively testing the new Transit in the United States at its proving grounds, and in the streets with Michigan contractors as it preps for its 2013 introduction.
2012 Mitsubishi I MiEV Front Three Quarter
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued its list of the most fuel efficient cars available for the 2012 model year, and, sadly, there are very few surprises. The entire list is composed of electric and hybrid cars, with nary a diesel- or tradition internal combustion-powered car to be found. Toyota is the biggest winner here, claiming four of the ten spots with the Toyota Prius (number five), Prius v (number 7), Camry Hybrid LE (number 10), and the Lexus CT200h (number eight). Honda also nabs two spots with the Civic Hybrid ranked at number six and the Insight at number nine. The full list, including electric and plug-in electric vehicles:
  1. Mitsubishi i-MiEV, 126/99 mpg city/highway
  2. Nissan Leaf, 106/92
  3. Azure Dynamics Transit Connect Van, 62/62 (electric Ford Transit Connect)
  4. Chevrolet Volt, 58/62
  5. Toyota Prius, 51/48
  6. Honda Civic Hybrid, 44/44
  7. Toyota Prius v, 44/40
  8. Lexus CT 200h, 43/40
  9. Honda Insight, 41/44
  10. Toyota Camry Hybrid LE, 43/39
As you can see, the EPA chose to include full-electric and plug-in electric vehicles in their data. However, if you excludecars like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt, the list changes slightly. Tying for the number eight spot without electrics are the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Lincoln MKZ Hybrid. The amended list also gains its first non-hybrid with the Scion iQ ranking at number nine, thanks to its 36/37 mpg city/highway rating. The Honda CR-Z hybrid rounds out the electric-free top ten.
