Ford Motor Co. is introducing the Transit Connect Wagon later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The vehicle will compete in a minivan market that has been shrinking over the last decade as customers migrate to small utilities like the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape.
Here are the top five best-selling minivans in the U.S. through October this year, their total sales and the percent up or down from the same period in 2011.
|Minivan||Total sales through October 2012||Percent change from 2011|
