Over the last few months, Ford has been boasting about the fact that its Transit Connect van has many best-in-class features such as cargo space, towing, and payload. And now, The Blue Oval’s global van can also lay claim to best-in-class fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated rating of 30 MPG on the highway from the 1.6-liter EcoBoost I4 engine, which makes 178 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
Based on those ratings, the Transit Connect could save customers an additional $250 in fuel cost savings over the course of five years compared to the Nissan NV200 and $1,750 compared to the Ram C/V.
The Motrolix Take
And therein lies the power behind well-engineered global products. Well-done, Ford.
