Diesel World - - News -

For im­proved cross-town fuel econ­omy, Ford is adding a diesel power plant to the Tran­sit Con­nects it up-fits for taxi duty. Re­freshed for 2019, the new Tran­sit model will be equipped with a 1.5L in­line four that pro­duces 120 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. It’s also ru­mored that the diesel Tran­sit Con­nect will see at least 30 mpg on the high­way. Built to com­pete di­rectly with Nis­san’s NV200 Taxi, Ford boasts that the 60-cu­bic-foot cargo area in the Tran­sit Con­nect Taxi makes it slightly more spa­cious than its Ja­pa­nese ri­val.
