It’s time for SEMA 2014, and we here at Ford Addict know what that means! It’s that time of year again when automakers and tuners alike take factory stock cars, and modify them to show off not only new designs and technology, but also to show off the potential these vehicles have in the aftermarket.

This group is full of different members and companies who produce equipment to modify, restore, and add new tech to older and late model cars. Many Ford vehicles were on display at the 2014 SEMA show, and everything from the Transit van to the classic Ford GT were shown with some unique custom flair. Read More
Vans have been a staple of utility vehicles for decades. Their no-frill, all business attitude has helped them be more successful as a work truck than most pickup trucks! One work van has been leading the best seller category for over 34 years, the legendary, Labrador-retriever-companion-like van, the Ford E-Series. However, all good things must come to an end; Ford has announced the retirement of the faithful E-Series. We never thought we would see this day. Pigs should be flying or H-E-double hockey sticks should be freezing over! But fear not van enthusiasts; Ford has the apocalypse-stalling replacement ready to go!
If you’re still questioning whether or not the new 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon Long Wheelbase has a good balance of family amenities and cargo space, take a minute and watch this how to video. The luxury of having a fold flat second and third row allows for up to 104.2 cu. ft. of cargo space: 85.8″ length at floor and 42.2″ cargo height.

This truck will make any Decepticon jealous while you roll around and feel like the James Bond of family transportation with the amount of features and functionality available.
