The Ford Transit Connect has won ALG’s Best Resale Value Award in the Midsized Commercial Van segment. Judging all the vehicles built to get the job done, ALG says the Ford Transit Connect will be worth the most when it’s time to trade it in.
The hit TV Show American Pickers may have just made it’s best find ever. Mike and Frank are upgrading to a 2015 Ford Transit van for the all-new season of American Pickers, starting April 30th at 9 p.m. on the History Channel.
“The biggest thing is, when the van is full, then we’ve got to come home. I’m interested in real estate on wheels,” Wolfe says during the episode airing April 30. “There were four or five different vehicles I was looking at, and I just keep coming back to the Ford as the better choice.”
This is the fifth time Ford has earned the ‘International Van of the Year’ (2001, 2003, 2007, 2013) and the second consecutive year. Last year the Transit Custom took home the honor.
The Connect was given 130 points out of a maximum 163 by European specialist journalists. The Connect beat the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and the Renault Kangoo.
