The Ford Transit Connect is a compact panel van developed by Ford Europe and introduced in 2002 to replace the older Ford Escort and Fiesta-based Courier van ranges. It employed the front-wheel drive Ford C170 platform of the original international Ford Focus.
The Ford Transit Connect is in its first generation and is a minivan with a 3-door and a 4-door version. Built on the Ford C170 platform, the available engine options are 1.8 liter Duratorq TDCi Diesel I4 and the 2.0 liter Duratec Gasoline I4. Transmission options are 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual.
Since mid-2009, the Transit Connect has been imported to the United States and Canada. The introduction of the North American variant coincided with a mid-cycle facelift which includes a restyled front grille, a deeper front bumper and a new dashboard featuring the switchgear and instrument pod from the C307 Focus.
Initially, only the long-wheelbase version of the van, outfitted with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol engine and 4 speed automatic transmission, was offered in North America; elsewhere, the 1.8 liter diesel engine and 5 speed manual transmission was the only available powertrain. An electric version was to follow about a year after launch, converted by Azure Dynamics Corporation at a U.S. facility.
2011 Ford Transit Connect XL and XLT share a standard 2-liter, inline-4 engine that generates 136 horsepower. Fuel economy of 21 miles per gallon city and 26 miles per gallon highway is achieved.
All gasoline models of the 2012 Ford Transit Connect vans are powered by a 136 horsepower, 2-liter inline-4 engine.
Ford Transit Connect Electric
At the 2009 Chicago Auto Show, Ford confirmed development of a battery-powered version of the Transit Connect. Production of the Transit Connect Electric began in December 2010. The official US Environmental Protection Agency range is 56 mi (90 km) and has a combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 62 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (3.8 L/100 km equivalent) based on the five-cycle tests using varying driving conditions and climate controls.
The Ford Transit Connect X-press is a much faster version of the Ford Transit Connect. It was created by a team of Ford engineers using the 212BHP engine from the Ford Focus RS.
