Just in time for the Holidays, Ford has crafted a Transit Connect Wagon Sleigh just for Santa, citing its fuel economy as the main reason why Santa would want one.
Of course, the sleigh is powered by Ford’s 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine, that makes around 178 hp. The brand claims that it will be more powerful than the previous sleigh, which used 9-reindeer power, making about 36 hoofpower. Ford also claims the Transit Connect Wagon Sleigh gets an industry-leading presents per gallon rating.
Surely Santa will also be excited to hear that it is likely that the Transit Connect Wagon will receive diesel power in the future.
“This is a winning situation for all,” says Darren Goddard, chief engineer for Ford Transit Connect Wagon. “The increased efficiency means added time for Santa to enjoy milk and cookies at stops. His new ride will offer 100 cubic feet of cargo space and versatility to haul up to 2,000 pounds, which Santa will need.”
