The 2015 Ford Transit full-size van family arrives at dealerships this summer.
Production of the Ford Transit began on Wednesday at the automaker's Kansas City Assembly Plant.
Ford said in a statement that Ford E-Series vans and wagons still will be available and sold side-by-side with Transit into the 2014 calendar year to "provide a seamless transition for Ford customers." Additionally, the E-Series cutaway and stripped chassis will continue to be built and sold through most of the rest of the decade.
In comparison, the base 2014 Ford E-150 van starts at $29,595, including a $995 destination charge.
Transit will be available in three body lengths, two wheelbases on van and wagon and three roof heights: in van, wagon, chassis cab and cutaway body styles; and in XL and XLT trim levels.
This combination offers "more choices than ever from a Ford commercial van vehicle," Ford said.
The E-Series features an all-gasoline engine lineup of two V8s and a V10. In comparison, Transit comes standard with a 3.7-liter V6 engine. The same 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine offered in the Ford F-150 pickup truck is optional on Transit. Another optional engine is the 3.2-liter Power Stroke diesel.
Each engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Edmunds says: Business owners shopping in the Ford commercial showroom have lots of choices and price ranges with the debut of the 2015 Transit and the word that the E-Series will still be available.
