Dubbed “Taxi of the Future” and claimed to provide “best-in-class performance, low operating costs, and improved comfort and flexibility for the North American taxi market”, the 2014 Transit Connect Taxi is powered by the company’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a new six-speed automatic transmission.

In addition, the Transit Connect Taxi can be ordered with a compressed natural gas/liquefied petroleum gas engine prep package, with the conversion to CNG/LPG to be supported by a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier.

“We’re leveraging our longtime leadership and expertise in the North American taxi market to ensure Transit Connect Taxi exceeds the expectations of taxi operators and their passengers,” said Tim Stoehr, commercial truck marketing manager for Ford. “Transit Connect Taxi has been popular in major metropolitan cities since it debuted in 2010, and it has only gotten better.”

The 2014 Ford Transit Connect Taxi will go into production and arrive in dealerships by early next year. For more info on the new vehicle, refer to the press release attached below.
