CNBC - November 13, 2012

Ford intro­duces the com­pact Tran­sit Con­nect Wagon, a vehi­cle so unique it is con­sid­ered a rev­o­lu­tion in seven-passenger transportation.

Find out what makes this vehi­cle unique.

Tran­sit Con­nect Wagon gives young fam­i­lies and peo­ple on the go the fun-to-drive and effi­cient vehi­cle they’ve been look­ing for,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s Pres­i­dent of The Amer­i­cas. “It’s an all-new, smaller seven-seater that has bet­ter mileage than larger vans and cre­ates a seg­ment of its own. Cus­tomers also will love the unique com­bi­na­tion of style, adapt­abil­ity and afford­abil­ity this wagon brings.”

  • Tran­sit Con­nect Wagon expected to deliver at least 5 mpg bet­ter fuel econ­omy on the high­way and 2 mpg bet­ter in the city than a seven-seat Toy­ota Sienna mini­van, and more cargo space and pas­sen­ger seat­ing than Mazda5, yet hauls a heav­ier pay­load than a Toy­ota Tacoma Dou­ble Cab pickup or Dodge Grand Caravan.
  • Antic­i­pat­ing up to 30 mpg-plus on the high­way with Eco­Boost® power, Tran­sit Con­nect Wagon offers a choice of two fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines, two wheel­base lengths and three series mod­els – XL, XLT and range-topping Titanium.
