Update: We've since published complete details and in-depth images at our official reveal of the 2010 Ford Transit Connect
Photos of what appear to be the refreshed 2010 Ford Transit Connect have appeared on the BurlappCars website, showing off the vehicle's more kinetic design. A photo of the redesigned interior below the jump.
These shots appear to be from a cellphone and not press shots, as evidenced by the grainy quality and strange angle. Regardless of the photographic equipment used, you can clearly see Ford's European design language on display with the revised nose, especially in the Focus-inspired bumper and grille design. As previously mentioned, the Transit should be sporting a 138 HP four-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed w/OD automatic transmission when it goes on sale (though there's clearly a manual transmission in the shot). The vehicle will also likely be available with the Ford Work Solutions package.
We liked the Transit Connect in its previous guise but certainly welcome the refresh. The small van is Ford's first modern entrant into the phenomenally under-served small commercial van market in this country, offering the Transit Connect as an alternative to those who don't need the larger Econoline van but require more accessible space than a car can provide.
