Ford Transit Connect Wagon Goes Official

New Ford model won't show up for at least a year

Ford has introduced a new member of the Transit family called the 2014 Transit Connect Wagon. This isn't like a wagon you would've seen in the 70s, this is more like a minivan. Ford promises different versions of the vehicle seating five or seven passengers and having plenty of space for cargo. The vehicle will be offered in XL, XLT, and Titanium series.

All models will feature fold flat seating and two engine options. The standard engine option will be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an optional 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. The EcoBoost engine is expected to achieve over 30 mpg on the highway.

The Transit Connect Wagon will also be able to tow 2000 pounds when properly equipped. Either engine option available on the Wagon will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Pricing for the vehicle is unknown at this time. The Transit Connect Wagon should be on dealer lots by Q4 2013.

The Story of Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Bad-Ass Who Made the Corvette an Icon

Oct 31 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Hard-core Corvette fans know Zora Arkus-Duntov and the contributions he bestowed over his two-plus decades at General Motors.

2015 Mustang EcoBoost VS. Merkur XR4Ti

Oct 31 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Being the owner of a Merkur XR4Ti and the son of another XR owner, we were both very excited when we heard Ford was reviving the 2.3 Turbo engine in the Mustang. The Mustang hasn't been powered by a 2.3 Turbo since the SVO which ended production in 1986 and featured the same engine that was slotted into a Sierra body to create the Merkur XR4Ti. The new EcoBoost Mustang is the closest we will get to having a modern XR4Ti whi ...

Ford’s Expeditions for SEMA Are Just Silly (Except the One We Actually Like)

Oct 31 2014 1:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We thought that tinted SUVs on oversize rims were as passé as the idea of showing music videos on MTV. But, wouldn’t you know it, DUB Magazine is still in print (“If it ain’t on some 24s then it ain’t my sh*t,” proclaims the latest cover story) and Ford still makes an SUV that looks like it did in 2007. Boom—perfect fit. Ford is bringing trio of tricked-out 2015 Expeditions to SEMA next week in Las Vegas, its first show of customize ...

On The Road: Determination trumps Sanity

Oct 31 2014 1:34pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Drop the gauntlet, and Harry Reding of Calgary is sure to take up the challenge. An off the cuff remark at a Dodge Brothers Club (DBC) meeting in 2012 had Reding and his wife, Debbie, driving their 1929 Dodge Brothers Model DA Roadster from Calgary to Brenham, Texas a year later. “In 2012 we’d trailered our DA to Detroit, and drove the car from there to Connecticut to take part in the DBC meet. We also drove on to Rhod ...

Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Etc., Supercars, BMW, Electric Like few other cars we can remember, people want to talk about the 2015 BMW i8. Drive one, and you'll soon find out what we mean. They stop you at gas stations. They accost you in Walgreen's parking lots. They stream out of neighborhood bars, beers in hand. At least, that was our experience this week during Autoblog ...

The 9 best vehicles for the Canadian zombie apocalypse

Oct 31 2014 12:13pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Speaking purely for myself, I’m really looking forward to the coming zombie apocalypse. Just think of it: no line ups at Starbucks, no more “Beliebers” on Twitter, a huge reduction in traffic, and if you see someone shuffling along slowly with a downcast gaze it’s perfectly socially acceptable to sneak up and smack them upside the head with a cricket bat. You can’t do that today to someone glued to their iPhone. More’s the pity. Granted, there are a few ...

Community College, Multiple Vendors InvolvedYou may have heard the term “many hands make a burden light,” but even with the help of multiple partners, we’d hardly describe the task of building a SEMA project vehicle as easy. Thanks to the creativity and hard work of some area community college students, Extang built a functional 2015 Ford F-150 project for the 2014 SEMA sh ...
