Ford hopes European van attracts U.S. families

DETROIT — Ford Motor Co.'s small, European cargo van, may find a home in the driveways of U.S. families.
Ford showcased Transit Connect, a boxy, commercial vehicle from Europe, in February. But the automaker has popped some windows into the van and retrofitted it for families. The Transit Connect Family One on display at the New York International Auto Show is a concept vehicle designed to attract families with active, busy lifestyles.
