Ford’s New Transit Connect Pickup: Hopefully You Didn’t Want a Longbed

Sometime next spring, Ford will release its new Transit Connect Pickup (TCPU), the short-bed answer to a question no one asked.  

With a bed that only measures 30-inches, you’ll either have to leave the sheet of drywall at Lowe’s or drag it behind the vehicle to get it home.   

“The TCPU is perfect for, say, someone who frequently steps in dog crap; they can throw their shoes in the bed and not stink up the truck’s interior,” said Ford spokesperson Gidget Plunknett.  

The Transit Connect’s engines carry over, including the top-of-the-line 178-horsepower Ecoboost four, which Ford says is strong enough to drag up to five sheets of drywall.
