Comparatively, the Ram ProMaster City saw its sales increase two percent, moving 4,114 units last quarter, tailing the Transit Connect.

Note that the Nissan NV200, which as been discontinued, is no longer a competitor in the segment. Additionally, the Ram ProMaster City has also been cancelled, but stock is still available for buyers at the moment.

From a segment share standpoint, Ford Transit Connect sales accounted for 54 percent share, down by nine percentage points year-over-year. The ProMaster City gathered the remaining 46 percent share, up nine percentage points.

Overall, the compact van segment contracted 16 percent to 9,038 units, meaning Transit Connect sales underperformed the segment average.


The Ford Authority Take

The Blue Oval has confirmed that the Ford Transit Connect is on the chopping block, and it will be fully discontinued after the 2023 model year. As such, its sales will decline until stock of the compact van is depleted, alongside its sole competitor, the ProMaster City, which has also been discontinued.

It’s worth noting that the current Ford Transit Connect does not introduce any major changes to the compact van line. The current-gen model has been in production and largely unchanged since the 2013 model year, though it did undergo a mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year. However, the 2023 Transit Connect ditched its optional 2.5L I4 engine and is now only available with the the 2.0L I4 engine.
