Will the Transit Connect get a forum on FTE?

I see that the crossovers have a forum.

So will the Transit Connect get its own place in the FTE lineup?

I hope this little van gets a turbo diesel in the US.
These vans look strange, but I may consider one, maybe.

Since I am too lazy to check myself, can you advise when the little beggars are going to hit the market here?

We'll see, maybe Ford will stick a 2.3 with a 3 speed automatic in there and offer fake wood panelling and wire wheel covers.... And of course, the massive grill--what would it say though, "Mini Duty" or "Mommy Duty" or what?

Time for a chill pill I guess.....

Mid next year, as a 2010 model. It's based off the Focus, but will probably get in with the Freestar/Windstar area.
Here's an article:

JimmysRed150 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Just how big is the Transit Connect? Because the other day, I saw a car hauler with some Focus' on it and there were also two small vans that looked like the pictures I've seen of the TC. These vans didn't look much bigger than the Focus. I thought the TC was bigger.

It is bigger than the Focus... longer at least.

Its a pity it isn't coming with the 2.0l diesel here - good engine.
