Which Ford Transit is the most economical?

The Ford Transit comes in a variety of different models and builds to help commercial owners customize the vehicle to their liking. The Ford Transit Connect XL Van features a Government of Canada-estimated rating of 11.9L/100 km (24 mpg) city, 8.7L/100 km (32 mpg) hwy, and 10.5L/100 km (28 mpg) combined (van) with a 2.5L iVCT gas engine.

Ford’s commercial vans have gotten much better fuel economy after they changed their overall design. Not only does the Transit’s design help with fuel efficiency, it particularly helps city drivers maneuvering through tight corners and finding parking spaces.
