The people at Ford must be pretty happy. Not only did the Ford Fusion Hybrid get picked as North American Car of the Year at the Detroit Auto Show, but the Ford Transit Connect won North American Truck of the Year. It's the first time a front-wheel-drive only vehicle has won the Truck of the Year; it's also most certainly the smallest vehicle to win the award.
I've ridden in a Transit Connect and thought it was a really neat vehicle; something super practical and economical. It also makes you wonder what the true definition of "truck" is. Regardless, congratulations to Ford for the double win.
