    2012 Ford Transit Connect Rated at 22/27 MPG
    Mileage Improves for Both City and Highway
    July 18, 2011
    By: Austin Rutherford

    In the months before releasing the Transit Connect in North America, Ford promoted the small utility van to obtain 25 mpg on the highway. When the vehicle was actually released, however, it carried 26 MPG on the highway along with 21 MPG in the city. After two years on the market, Ford has improved it again. Fuel economy numbers for the 2012 Transit Connect have recently been released and the van is now rated at 22/27 MPG. This results in a one MPG improvement on both ratings over prior model years.

    Hopefully this is enough of an improvement to hold off new competitors in its class. Nissan plans on releasing its NV200 while rumors suggest the Fiat Doblo will be rebadged as a Ram here in North America.

    Do not expect any other improvements until an all-new Transit Connect hits the market sometime in the 2014 model year.

    Why not the 2.5L I4 with a six speed auto?? This could be a modern day conversion van. Plenty of room for TVs, captains chairs, indirect lighting, and maybe even some shag carpet!
