Ford to launch updated Transits

Ford will launch a new version of its Transit Connect vans later this year.

The new Transit Connect ECOnetic diesel model with a 1.6-litre engine will provide 70.6 miles per gallon and CO2 emissions of 105 grams per kilometre, which Ford says represents a 34 per cent improvement on the current model. 

The petrol version will use Ford’s 1-litre EcoBoost engine for the first time, which runs at 50.4 miles per gallon and has CO2 emissions of 129 grams per kilometre.

A number of other fuel-saving measures such as auto start-stop are available as standard on the petrol-powered vans and as an option on some of the diesel vehicles.

Ford says all have improved electric power-assisted steering.

The vans are available in both short and long wheel bases and have a maximum payload volume of up to 1000 kg. The van will be sold in van, double cab-in-van and kombi versions. Deliveries of the vans will start towards the end of the year.
