2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon looks much better in the flesh

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 5, 2012

The pricing on the new Ford Transit Connect Wagon hasn’t been announced yet but it’s believed to be competitive. The Transit Connect Wagon, a minivan by another name, is built on the platform that’s also used by the Ford Focus and Escape. It is powered by the same 4-cylinder engines. Since there’s no rival in the minivan segment, Ford offers the C-Max in only the hybrid form.

The retrofitted commercial vehicle serves two purposes as it’s also a carrier for people. Ford hopes to provide the best fuel economy rating in its class. The standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder delivers 168 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque while the optional EcoBoost 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder produces 173 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The two engines will exclusively come with a 6-speed automatic.

Even if it’s a distinctly European-styled vehicle, it’s not available with a manual transmission. It can seat seven people. The second and third rows can be folded totally flat while the two third row seats can be independently shifted forwards and back by 5-inches. It is a utilitarian vehicle in basic trim. The Ford XL, XLT and Titanium model will be offered with top options such as a panoramic glass roof, MyFord Touch, a rear-view camera and a 6.5-inch touch screen.
