efficiency. The 2.0L Duratec 16-valve DOHC I-4 Engine holds the
best-in-class(1) 2012 EPA-estimated fuel economy
of 21 mpg city/27 mpg highway while providing 136 horsepower @ 6300 rpm,
128 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4750 rpm. The cast aluminum engine block and
reduces overall vehicle weight also helping fuel efficiency. This
balance of horsepower and fuel efficiency is accomplished with a DOHC,
16-valve cylinder head that delivers excellent combustion performance.

again improve engine durability. This is a great fleet vehicle that
really stands up to the constant grind of driving. The low NVH (Noise,
Vibration and Harshness) characteristics contribute to a smooth ride

rave about how quiet and easy to drive the Ford Transit Connect is
comparably. The fuel efficient motor is paired with a 4-speed automatic
transmission with overdrive. The fail-safe cooling system also ensures
that you are never stranded. This commercial fleet vehicle meets
Federal Tier 2 Bin 4 standards and qualifies for California Ultra Low
Emissions Vehicle II (ULEV II) standard.

engine rpm at highway speeds,
helping maximize fuel economy with a 3.96:1 final drive ratio.

multi-leaf rear suspension, rack-and pinion steering and Anti-lock
Braking System (ABS) allows the Transit Connect to drive and ride more

controlled ride while also contributing to responsive steering. Ford

cornering. The Transit Connect rides more like a car while working like

(curb-to-curb) turning diameter helping to make the Transit Connect as
nimble as a small car. Engineers of the Ford Transit Connect chose
