With all the attention Ford is getting about the new Transit and Transit Connect coming to the U.S., our spy shooters thought this would be interesting. Here's what they sent:
"We caught the Ram brand's answer to the upcoming Ford Transit (itself an answer to Dodge's original Daimler-sourced Sprinter) testing on public roads in Detroit. The prototype we photographed is sporting the classic Ram crosshair grille affixed to an otherwise unmodified Fiat Ducato van, suggesting that the Chrysler Group will likely do little else to tailor the European courier van to the U.S. market.
"Ford just released images of the 2014 Ford Transit in Amsterdam, prior to the Paris Motor Show. It's not entirely clear if the model shown represents a globally styled product or if the U.S. version will get more typical Ford truck influences. (Editor's note: We hope so.) Executives had been quoted as saying the U.S.-spec Transit would get revised styling to match other elements of its U.S. lineup, and prototypes shot in Dearborn seem to suggest that the American offering will get some styling revisions. In today's wave of Transit photos, no interiors were included, but we have managed to get some photos of the dashboard of a U.S.-spec Transit, showing a carlike Fiesta/Fusion-inspired design.
"We also Photoshopped a U.S.-spec Transit prototype alongside the Ducato prototype for fun, giving a glimpse of what a Fed-Ex/UPS drag race might look like."
