Ford Brings Out Entire Showroom, Commercial Vehicles And EcoBoost For North American International Auto Show

Ford is the largest manufacturer in the global commercial vehicle segments where it competes, and North America's best-selling commercial truck brand for 28 years. Ford is building on this leadership with introductions of the all-new Ford Transit and Ford Transit Connect vans.

Transit full-size cargo van and wagon are expected to deliver best-in-class fuel economy – averaging 25 percent better than today's E-Series – and the segment's lowest operating costs. Customers can choose from three roof heights, three body lengths, two wheelbases, and standard 3.7-liter V6, 3.5-liter EcoBoost or new 3.2-liter Power Stroke ® five-cylinder diesel engines.

The all-new Ford Transit Connect compact van is available in two wheelbase lengths and in XL and XLT trim series. Transit Connects deliver a 1,600-pound payload, 130 cubic feet of cargo space, and have an available 2,000 pounds of towing capacity. Transit Connect is expected to achieve at least 30 mpg on the highway with its 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine.

Beyond its vehicle fleet and displays of technological innovations, Ford will offer NAIAS guests several experiential opportunities.

BoosticalVisitors will have the chance to produce an instant musical collage featuring the words "Eco" and "Boost" backed by sound effects. This fun sound mash-up will be shareable on social media networks instantly.

Taurus talent searchGuests interested in becoming a Taurus product specialist will be able to audition by recording a video. Participants will be given a short script to share via social media. Those with the highest number of "likes" will win the title of Best in Show.

Blue Oval cardFor the second year, the display will feature Ford's Blue Oval card, offering visitors a more focused, personalized experience they can share with their family and friends. Visitors can register online to receive a Blue Oval card, which they can then use to access relevant content throughout their time on the Ford stand.
