Performance and Efficiency

Powered by your choice of our latest Ford EcoBoost petrol or EcoBlue diesel engines, the New Ford Transit Connect combines power, durability and efficiency. And with a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission, both offering a more rewarding driving experience, the van is the perfect partner for your business.

1.5 EcoBlue diesel engine

Our 75 PS, 100 PS and 120 PS TDCi diesel engines impress with their refined power and superb efficiency, offering fuel economy as low as 4.7/100km (56Tooltip mpg) and 123g/km CO2 emissions. On town or city roads to long drives on the motorway, their smooth torque delivery is invaluable on inclines or when overtaking.

1.0 Ford EcoBoost petrol engine

With turbocharging, direct petrol injection and variable valve timing, our multiple award-winningTooltip Ford EcoBoost engines deliver the same performance as larger engines, but with much better fuel economy and lower emissions.
