Ford Ends Transit Connect in N.A.
Ford Motor Co. on Tuesday confirmed it will end sales of the Transit Connect small van in North America after the 2023 model year. “The decision stemmed from the company’s “efforts to reduce global manufacturing cost and complexity, alongside decreased demand for the compact van segment.”
Ford on Tuesday confirmed the Transit Connect will continue to be built in Spain and sold in European markets.
The move comes as many automakers bow out of the segment. Ram announced last year it would end production of the ProMaster City van, and General Motors and Nissan have also dropped their own small vans in recent years.
