This goes into more detail:

Given what the Forbes article says about the new emissions standards, both of these will most likely be in the Transit no later than 2018.

They use more gears to allow lower gear differential and to keep the engine in the peak torque range.

More torque makes driveability better. If you've driven a diesel VW you can really appreciate the torque compared to a weak gas car.

More torque keeps the revs down as well and thus wear and economy gets better.

I'm assuming this newer design just led to more torque and wasn't necessarily planned. The design fixes any issues (probably not real) with deposits on the intake side of the valves due to direct injection.

Ecoboost is amazing and probably one of the greatest engines ever made.
Genuinely curious why you think the problem with build up may not be real.
Just seems like a huge oversight.
