TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Ford Transit Connect

Ford Transit Connect Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 With less size and weight and a smaller engine, the Ford Transit Connect does get better fuel economy than a conventional minivan...but its advantage isn't large. The Ford's EPA ratings--20 mpg city, 28 mpg highway--best the Toyota Sienna's by two in the city and three on the highway. But the Honda Odyssey is rated 19/28. On the other hand, the much smaller, much lighter Mazda5 only managed 21/28. What's going on? Well, the Ford is very tall, so even though it's narrower it's pushing nearly as much frontal area through the air. This especially matters on the highway. Also, the Transit Connect is not much lighter, 3,979 lbs. to the Sienna's 4,310. Two tons is a lot of weight for a 2.5-liter four-cylinder to motivate. In the real-world, a light foot in the suburbs could nudge the trip computer average to 27 (even 30 on one trip). The Odyssey's trip computer reported numbers about five below these, while the Sienna struggled to crack 20. Push the Transit Connect a bit harder, and the trip computer average dropped to about 23, still good for a vehicle its size. But was the trip computer accurate? The gas gauge needle fell much faster than these numbers suggested it should have. On a 70-mph highway, even the trip computer numbers were short of the EPA rating, about 25. The big minivans can do this well. Blame the Ford's frontal area. The Transit Connect's fuel economy advantage is chiefly in urban and suburban driving. see full Ford Transit Connect review
