The Ford Transit Connect commercial van will come with a 2.0-Liter Duratec inline-four mated to a four-speed automatic transmission capable of 19 MPG city and 24 MPG highway according to a leaked ordering guide.


According to the ordering guide for the 2010 Transit Connect, the new commercial vehicle will be available either in "Van" or "Wagon" with XL and XLT trim levels available. The "Van" version gets no back seats and the "Wagon" comes with either a two-seat or three-seat cloth second row.

All Transit Connects come with the same 2.0-Liter Duratec inilne-four, capable of 138 HP and 132 lb-ft of torque, mated to a four-speed w/OD automatic transmission. The combination provides for an estimated mileage of 19 MPG city and 24 MPG highway, which is good for a commercial vehicle but feels a bit low for a tall first-gen Focus wagon.

As the Transit Connect is meant as a commercial vehicle, the typical amenities are limited relative to a normal passenger vehicle. Audio equipment standard on the XL model is a two-speaker AM/FM radio, with the CD player available on the XLT model. One of the most exciting pieces of new Ford technology, Ford Work Solutions, is now confirmed as an option on the Transit Connect.


Now we just need to come up with a fake business so we'll have an excuse to buy one.
