The 2015 Ford Transit Connect has a tough competitor in the form of the Nissan NV200, so let’s see how it stacks up against the competition.
When you’re carrying a lot of cargo in the van’s bed, you’re going to need a powerful engine to get going. The NV200 makes do with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine making 131 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque. The Transit Connect has two available engines for you to choose from. The base model is equipped with a 2.5L Duratec I-4 producing 169 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. The range-topping Transit Connect has a 1.6L EcoBoost I-4 generating 178 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.
The Transit Connect’s engines are more powerful than the NV200’s, but are still able to obtain the same fuel economy.
