Ford has unveiled the new 2013 Transit Connect Wagon, a version based on the commercial van which will be offered in two wheelbases and in five and seven passenger configuration. 
The Blue Oval officials told us that their new MPV will return on the highway 30+ mpg US  (36 mpg UK or 7.8 liters / 100 km) when is equipped with an EcoBoost engine. The new 2013 Transit Connect Wagon will be offered in three trim levels (XL, XLT, Titanium) and it will have a payload of up to 1.200 pounds (544 kg), while the towing capacity is rated at up to 2.000 pounds (907 kg). 
Transit Connect Wagon offers customers a choice between two fuel-efficient four-cylinder engines – a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an optional 1.6-liter EcoBoost. Both units are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. 
Transit Connect Wagon’s global design includes premium cues throughout such as available full body-color exterior accents with jewel-like chrome trim and high-gloss interior trim pieces. A range of seating surfaces, from luxurious leather, comfortable cloth and heavy-duty vinyl, is available to suit the specific needs of a wide variety of potential customers.
"The all-new Transit Connect Wagon will expand the personal-use audience for this versatile nameplate by offering up to seven-passenger capacity across three rows of seating in a fully trimmed interior. It has an extensive selection of comfort, convenience and connectivity options, and a full complement of safety features – making it a modern, family-friendly alternative to oversized minivans", said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford vice president of Global Engineering, Global Product Development.
