Ford has a thing or two to say about Nissan‘s NV200 “Taxi of Tomorrow,” dubbing its 2014 Ford Transit Connect Taxi the “Taxi of the Future.”


The all-new 2014 Ford Transit Connect Taxi was unveiled this weekend at the 2013 International Association of Transportation Regulators Conference in St. Louis. Powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a fuel-efficient six-speed transmission, Ford says it will be the only taxi available with a compressed natural gas/liquefied petroleum gas engine prep package.

The redesigned Ford Transit Connect Taxi has a decreased vehicle height to provide improved clearance for advertising on the roof. It is also longer and offers seating for five with increased cargo capacity compared to its predecessor. Ford expects the 2014 Transit Connect Taxi to have a best-in-class 60.5 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row. For added comfort, the new Transit Connect is equipped with twist-beam rear suspension compared to its competitors’ leaf spring and solid axle setup.

It would be nice to see the difference between the 2013 and 2014 side by side. I liked the high roof on the 2013 as it gave me plenty of head room to wear my hat and drive. Will I still be able to do that on the 2014, and when can I order one as a passenger car?

I believe the high roof will still be available.
