    4-speed auto + 4.20:1 final drive = easily 3500-ish RPM on the highway from that 2.0 :rofl:

    Well - for a workhouse based off an economy car, what do you expect?

    Ford's keeping the E-Series, so people needing bigger vans and highway haulers can just get that. I think this is a step in the right direction for commercial vehicles (especially if you don't go out of the city much) around here. Ford's been selling this and the larger Transit in Europe for a while now. Although there's word the E-Series might get replaced with the Transit, which is kinda similar to the Dodge Sprinter in size.

    Yeah not sure if you read the thread or not but 17 already sort of mentioned this. Now I get it, all of Ford's products must be based off economy cars.
