Ford Transit Connect sales experienced a minor slip throughout the 2022 calendar year, but even so, The Blue Oval’s compact van maintained a solid first-place showing over the other two vehicles in its competitive segment.
Ford Transit Connect sales decreased four percent throughout 2022, selling 25,140 units.
The second-best Ram ProMaster City, meanwhile, saw its sales increase nine percent to 15,914 units last year, while the segment was rounded out by the discontinued Nissan NV200, which saw just 134 units delivered last year, down 99 percent.

The Ford Authority Take
Overall, Ford Transit Connect sales remained relatively stable throughout the 2022 calendar year, despite the fact that the model is potentially on the chopping block after the 2023 model year is built out. While its future remains unclear, it seems that the Transit Connect is nearing the end of its lifespan in the U.S. and Canada. It’s also worth noting that the Ram ProMaster City has been axed, with production concluding in 2022, however, and the Nissan NV200 hasn’t been produced since late 2021. All that in mind, there are certainly changes on the way for the compact van segment.
The 2023 Ford Transit Connect features very minor updates and changes over its previous model year. In fact, the most major change is the deletion of the 2.5L IVCT I4 engine. That powerhouse produced 169 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque and was mated to Ford’s six-speed automatic transmission, which has also been deleted.
The only engine choice for the 2023 Transit Connect, then, is the 2.0L Duratec I4 engine, which is capable of 162 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to FoMoCo’s eight-speed automatic transmission.
