Part of Ford’s 2013 SEMA onslaught includes Vandemonium, a cluster of ten modified 2014 Ford Transit Connect cargo vans and wagons customized in various ways by reputable shops and aftermarket customizers. The stars of Vandemonium – including Blood & Grease, CGS Motorsports, eJudged, Impulse Marketing & Media, K-Daddyz Kustomz, LGE*CTS Motorsports, Mobsteel, Pentech Automotive, and Strange Motion – creatively used the versatility and utility of the Transit Connect to create mobile workstations and displays aimed at taking families and businesses to the next level. As for the 10th customized Transit Connect? Well, we’ll have to wait until SEMA for its unveiling.

The Ford Transit Connect, launched in Europe in 2003 and North America in 2009, was named the 2010 North American Truck of the Year and 2014 International Van of the Year. The launch of the all-new 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon and Transit Connect cargo van is set for early next year. A van and a wagon? Yes, two models will be offered and are being customized for Vandemonium: the traditional panel-side cargo van, and an all-new spacious and fuel-efficient people-moving wagon with sliding doors and fold-flat seating for seven passengers.

We doubt it will be hard to spot these ten over-the-top Ford Transit Connects, as these cool and wild compact vans and wagons are certain to cause some, shall we say, Vandemonium. Check out the renderings below, as well as a few spy shots we were able to get our hands on!
