Ford Transit Van Coming to the US as T-Series
Well, that “so on”, now will have a new translation, in the form of the full-size Transit van, which will be brought to the US. According to the UAW (earlier today, another Ford-UAW contract scoop revealed the 5.8-liter 2013 Shelby Mustang GT 500), the Transit will also be built in America (Ford Tough, of course). The vehicle will come to life at the Kansas City site, where the F-150 pickup is produced.
The vehicle will be renamed as the T-Series, in order to avoid confusion with the Transit Connect, a much smaller van, as Car and Driver reports. Thus, the range will follow the naming structure of the F-Series trucks line-up.

GM drops its S10 and economy trucks in faver of the colorado (overpriced midsized trucks with rediculacy large engines that get 2 MPG more than full size, and goes full speed ahead with hummers, H2, H3, H4. --- anyone still wander why american car companies are go bankrupt!
