"The minivan market has been in a state of perpetual free-fall, which makes many people think ‘why would you get into such a segment,’” said Merkle. “When it first came out, it was a very small vehicle. It was four-cylinder, front-wheel drive, the price point was good, it was fuel efficient relative to other things in the marketplace. But today’s minivan has grown.“
Ford is looking for “a new buyer,” added Merkle. “We call it the unminivan; it’s the Transit Connect Wagon and it’s there for emerging families that will be formed from the 85 million to 90 million millennials in the U.S.”
What is the GC you refer to? We missed something.
Not sure of your point - according to reviews an optioned Transit Connect as a "wagon" is the same price as an Odyssey, and having one of those there's no comparison with the Ford.
However, if there's a plain boxy vehicle out there at the $20K level we'd be interested in knowing what it is.
