“The decision stemmed from the company’s “efforts to reduce global manufacturing cost and complexity, alongside decreased demand for the compact van segment," Ford said in a statement.
Ford also confirmed the Transit Connect will continue to be built in Spain and sold in European markets.
Ram announced last year it would end production of the ProMaster City van, and General Motors and Nissan have also dropped their own small vans in recent years.
Mercedes-Benz also announced it will end U.S. sales of its Metris minivan following the 2023 model year.
Sales of the Ford Transit Connect saw a 25% decline between 2020 and 2021.
