I think it's all a part of the selling strategy. They'll roll out the AWD version in about 5 years, after they've sold a million of the current model...Transit getting old?, time for the newer, nicer ones.
The "rumor" of a dedicated manual for '17 is dead wrong...I'd bet we never see that here in the states. Besides, the manual mode with the current tranny works just fine, you're just pushing a button instead of throwing a shift handle.

Laid before my feet on Jan 14
I'd put a TRUMP bumper sticker on it, but I'm quite certain it would be vandalized.
