The Ford Authority Take

The numbers speak for themselves: the Ford Transit Connect continued to dominate its segment during the second quarter just as it during the first quarter. We expect this to continue as a result of a very attractive product offering that’s highly competitive and extremely well-positioned. In addition, the discounts Ford has been offering on the Transit Connect also make it an appealing proposition.

Going forward, we imagine that Ford will continue to invest in such vehicles and maintain its footing in this market. Specifically, Ford has updated the 2020 Transit Connect with new features such as the Ford Co-Pilot360 feature and automatic headlights. The Blue Oval even introduced a Transit Connect Sport to the lineup, however, it has only been announced for European markets, and not yet for North America.
