And it would not surprise me if the nose is completely different to line up with Ford's American truck line.

Looks like it will retain the styling of the RWD Euro Transit.

Redesigned from the ground up, the Transit raises Ford full-size van capability to a whole new level. Coming to the North American International Auto Show, January 2013.

Very interesting. I wonder if this previews where the F150 and Super Duty noses will go? The propane barbeque burner look isn't that attractive...not that trucks of this ilk should be.

Theres never been much connecting the E series and F series look wise.
So where Ford goes with those probably depends more on the next generation product than anything.

Also interested in figuring out what Chevy is going to do in response to the Transit. We haven' heard anything from them. Perhaps its time for Chevy to express a response.....

Facelift for the Mid sized Custom model; This is the Tourneo passenger version, but I expect the commercial version to adapt similar changes;



Teh new interior looks comparably upscale for a Transit

They race them in Europe.....

Its interesting that Ford hasn't seen the market for this mid sized van. Then again, where I am the only MB mid sized I know is a discreet silver edition belonging to a Funeral Home.

They have the extended wheelbase Transit Connect covering it most likely.
