Ford's new V6 Diesel/10-Speed Tranny combo

http://www.autonews.com/article/2017...150-mpg-for-18

Here's an article on Fords coming V6 Diesel/10-speed tranny for F-150. You'll have to copy and paste the above link. I can't seem to keep the hyperlink when I paste the address.

I've got to believe that Ford will utilize this engine and Tranny in Transit too. They spent a ton of money on development and emissions so spreading the use would be wise for this investment.

I'm a long trip driver and currently doing 700-mile days. I drive 75-78 mph which kills mileage on the 3.5 Ecoboost. Bugs me to get 14-15 mpg which isn't much better than the Econolines of past. Combined with 25-gallon tank, the range isn't so great.

Hoping new diesel, 10-speed tranny and a larger tank will someday make the options sheet.

15 Transit 150 low roof XLT, 3.5. Super nice loaded van with crappy left foot space.
