Interesting, 2019 Transit

https://hdcarrelease.com/2019-ford-t...d-van-upgrade/

I will be in the market for a 2019 or 2020, will be interesting to see what MB and transit both have.

Strange article. Sounds like a piece written for the 2015 Transit introduction.

They have already moved away from that witness the new Escape vs previous.

same drivetrain options as 2015, which is not unusual. We probably won't see any real changes until 7-8 years into the model release.

I guess they aren't too worried about trying to increase gas millage by using a 7 or 8 spd tranny

My wife's first car (new Honda Civic original 74) had a two speed auto, we called it "rubber band drive", but I can already feel the need for more gears with my recent upgrades. I also read (probably here) that to offer AWD and the current engine choices they could not just transplant their current Euro AWD system, not beefy enough.

Aluminum body panels? Weight of a van under 5,000 lbs?

I would be surprised if Ford couldn't adapter the Intelligent 4WD from the Explorers if they had enough demand to elicit a response.

If it can work for the F-Series, no reason it can't work here. The issues standing in the way are oil, Trump, and the fact that our MPG numbers do not burden Ford's total fleet standards due to the weight. By shedding some pounds, Ford may stand to lose out.
