Ford builds a 2014 Transit Connect Wagon sleigh especially for Santa Claus

Ford has built an all-new 2014 Transit Connect Wagon sleigh especially for Santa Claus. Ford has plenty of presents to give to nice kids all across the world so to get to all of them, he requires a new sleigh with maximum fuel economy and cargo space for the efficient delivery of all the presents. This concept sleigh is based on Ford’s Transit Connect Wagon.

It is powered by EcoBoost, which provides a rating of more than 30 mpg and a per gallon (ppg) cargo rating that leads the industry. As an additional benefit, the EcoBoost engine, which has been given fine tuning to achieve high-speed performance, would make Santa reach speeds much faster than his previous 36hp sleigh.

Santa Claus even released a statement about his new ride. He asserts that he will stay true to his mission to give presents to “good girls and boys” and that with this new sleigh, the process will be more efficient. Engineers at Ford started to develop the Transit Connect Wagon sleigh concept just a few weeks after it heard of Santa’s predicament during cold-weather testing in the North Pole.

Darren Goddard, chief engineer for Ford Transit Connect Wagon, claims that everyone wins since the added efficiency means that Santa has more time during stops for milk and cookies. His new transportation will provide him with 100 cubic feet of cargo space and the capability of haul as much as 2,000 pounds.
