2017 Ford Transit - manual transmission?

Someone I know delivered a load of parts to the Transit assembly plant in Claycomo, MO last week. Waiting to get unloaded he started chatting with a worker there and the conversation turned towards the 2017 redesign. He mentioned the addition of retractable running boards, woodgrain interior, 6 speed manual transmission, bulkhead, and 4WD...

What caught my attention was the 6 speed manual transmission since I am a diehard manual fan. Do you think he spoke the truth? I guess we will find out for sure in a few months.

If this is true, it will make my decision very easy in the Transit vs. the others contest. I might just have to retire my trusty Sprinter. Poor thing is getting old, 12 years and currently 767,476 miles.
