DEARBORN, Michigan — The seven-passenger 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon will exceed 30 mpg, Ford said on Tuesday as it unveiled the people mover.

Pricing has not been announced. The 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon arrives in showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The EPA has not yet confirmed the fuel economy numbers on the 2014 Transit Connect Wagon.

Ford is hoping to make inroads in the minivan — and truck — market with the Transit Connect Wagon.

Ford said in a statement that the Transit Connect Wagon is "expected to deliver at least 5 mpg better fuel economy on the highway and 2 mpg better in the city than a seven-seat Toyota Sienna minivan, and more cargo space and passenger seating than a Mazda 5, yet hauls a heavier payload than a Toyota Tacoma Double Cab pickup or Dodge Grand Caravan."

The EPA says the 2013 Toyota Sienna with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission returns 18 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway.

The Transit Connect Wagon will come with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an optional 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Ford said it will be offered in two wheelbase lengths and three models: XL, XLT and a top-of-the-line Titanium model.

The Transit Connect Wagon will feature sliding doors, fold-flat second- and third-row seating and a choice of a rear liftgate or side-hinged cargo doors.

Edmunds says: Is the 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon the solution to the stigma associated with minivans?
