    Would like updates on this vehicle. Is it rear wheel or front wheel drive?

    Hi Charles, at this point Ford hasn't released any additional information about the version of this vehicle that's slated for the U.S. The Tourneo Connect, what this vehicle is called in Europe, I believe is front-wheel drive, similar to the Transit Connect. Beyond that, I'm not going to speculate as to what Ford has planned for the U.S. version of this vehicle.
