Ford is going to be replacing its body-on-frame E series, which has been the market leader and a profit-generator for nearly three decades, with the Transit van family. Ford is already rolling out its 2014 Transit Connect Van and Wagon to dealerships and will start selling the full-sized 2015 Transit commercial van this summer.

"Many people have asked me, with E series being so successful, why are we making a change," says Minyang Jiang, brand manager for the Transit, Transit Connect and E series. The answers are diverse and one of them is Alan Mulally's One Ford plan, which entails consolidating offerings around the globe onto a few common platforms – something that Transit perfectly fits into.

Not sure how people are going to like this. The E-Class was an awesome truck based van, now...thats no more.

I think its not so much about turning away from the E series, and more about what it will be riding on next. As long as they do a good job with the new architecture that the Transit will ride on, people won't care too much.
