Each 2018 Transit Connect short wheelbase is ready to zip through city traffic using the 2.5L four-cylinder engine and earning an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined city/highway.2 The available long wheelbase adds an extra 16 inches, improving capacity while still able to fit down alleys and pull up curbside without causing a traffic jam.
