Ford presents its Transit Connect Family One concept

It looks as Ford could be taking on the MPV Mazda5 with a brand new concept variant of its Transit Connect. Called the Transit Connect Family One unit, the show auto demonstrates how easy is to the Transit Connect to be transformed in MPV for the small families out there.

The Transit Connect Family One's based on the basic Transit Connect, but it's designed for being family friendly, still putting a powerful style emphasis. 'Transit Connect is a versatile vehicle that can be adapted to a wide variety of applications' affirmed Mark Fields, Ford’s president - The Americas. 'The Family One concept delivers fun with function. This fun, cool space is for parents and small children alike, combining fuel efficiency with advanced technologies that can help keep families connected on the go'.

The Family One concept has four-cylinder 2.0L engine – hitting 22/25 mpg city/highway. Ford affirms the MPV unit could be fitted now with EcoBoost plus all-electric drivetrains even. Ford didn't gave the concept that green light. It sounds as if this great Family One model might not be so far behind the de debut this summer of Transit Connect.
