OK, fellows: educate me... I stumbled across an article buried deep on my homepage this morning, now can't find it -- but found this one on USA today regarding Ford's putting the Econoline van into the archives: http://content.usatoday.com/communities/driveon/post/2011/12/ford-killing-off-the-econoline-van-/1#.UETWdpb8mSo
On edit, here is the original article I found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Teilintegriertes_WoMo.jpg
So, does this mean that our E350's & E450's are about to become dinosaurs now or in the near future -- and the European Transit (sprinter like for sure!) will now be the basis for future PC's and other B+/C's by all manufacturers in the non-Sprinter vehicles? I found this photo of a European motorhome built on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Teilintegriertes_WoMo.jpg
. They talk about 25% better fuel economy, but also about it being lighter and less powerful than the E-series.
Did y'all already know all this and what do you think this will mean as far as this European version replacing the E-series? Any idea if it is going to be only diesel or also gas?
