The all-new Ford Transit Connect is standing a little taller after being endorsed by Tall Clubs International as a vehicle that brings fit and comfort to the "vertically gifted."

The Transit Connect was recognized today as part of Paramount Tall Club's annual Chicago weekend. Paramount Tall Club is a Chicago-based member of Tall Clubs International.

"People of a certain stature have to make special considerations for head and leg room when out buying a new car," said Brian Comeno, president of Tall Clubs International. "Car shopping is very tough, and if you are concerned about fuel efficiency, smaller is sometimes the way to go.

"The Transit Connect provides both comfort and fuel efficiency, giving people who are vertically gifted important factors that go into purchasing a new vehicle."

The Transit Connect, which hit dealer showrooms this month in the United States, comes in two all-new models – a panel-side cargo van; and a wagon, a stylish, spacious and fuel-efficient people mover. When equipped with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine the Transit Connect Wagon is rated at 29 mpg highway.

The Transit Connect Wagon offers ample headroom and a spacious interior for a vehicle that is about 16 inches longer and wider than the Ford Fiesta sedan, making it a smart buy in a world that often leaves the "vertically gifted" challenged when car shopping. The wagon and cargo van have 46.8 inches of headroom in the first row and 45.1 inches in the second row. The long wheelbase wagon has 41.3 inches in the third row.
