Ford Transit Connect Wagon

As we all know, American carmaker Ford is not wasting any time, but in fact are working hard. Their latest achievement is the new 2013 Ford Transit Connect Wagon, a new seven-seat variant which, according to the manufacturer, is capable of a fuel consumption of 30 mpg US. Ford hopes to achieve this figure on the highway as long as it is equipped with the new EcoBoost engine. You should also know that they offer three trim levels and two wheelbase lengths. The trim levels are XL, XTL and Titanium.

Under the hood, the model is available with a standard 4-cylinder 2.5-liter engine. It uses a 6-speed automatic transmission to transfer the output to the road. As optional, clients can also choose a 1.6-liter EcoBoost connected to the same gearbox. It has 60/40 three-passenger second-row, as well as fold-flat second- and third-row seating with third row independent fore and aft sliding capability and this is why it can accommodate different combinations of people and cargo. The all new Transit Connect Wagon builds on the foundation of reliability and durability established by the current compact van found on the market. It was introduced for the first time in 2009 in America and it is the perfect combination between fuel efficiency, adaptability, cargo capacity and ease of driving. Ford is selling 35.000 units each year and so, apparently the model has become a favorite of small businesses, corporate fleets, and taxi operators and not only. For the parent, the carmaker has prepared a child observation mirror to keep track of children safely belted in second and third row seats. The new 2013 Ford Transit Connect Wagon will be available in dealerships starting the 4th quarter of 2013.
