Along with the Mustang muscle cars and GT supercars we expect to see cited in Ford press releases, one unusual vehicle keeps popping up.

It's a van. Yes, a van.

Specifically, it's the Transit Connect, an unconventional-looking minivan that just helped Ford post its best January van sales since 1985.

In the midst of a record-setting year for the Blue Oval and most of the car industry, Ford can thank the Transit Connect for capturing a 69% share of the small-commercial-van market.
