Ford's "One Ford" strategy, which refers to the company's plan to leverage its global product lineup to spread models across new markets, is responsible for bringing the Transit Connect stateside. It's a small commercial van Ford introduced in Europe and other markets in 2003. Maximum cargo space is about 130 cubic feet, close to that of larger minivans. Ford says it made a few styling tweaks to suit the U.S. market, but the Transit Connect's 2.0-liter four-cylinder — the sort of engine you'd find in a compact car — speaks more to Europe's fuel prices than to America's penchant for horsepower. With a second row of seats, the Transit Connect can hold up to five people.
