Meanwhile, the Blue Oval welcomes nearly 1,000 employees that have already been hired to at the Kansas facility, which will also start building the 2015 F-150 pickup truck in the first quarter of 2015, making Ford one of Missouri's top employers.

The 2015 Ford Transit will replace the Ford E-Series, America's best-selling van for the past 35 years, when it reached showrooms later this year.

The vehicle will be offered as a van, wagon, chassis cab and cutaway, with a choice of three wheelbases and three roof heights. Engine options will include a 3.7-liter V6, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and a 3.2-liter inline 5-cylinder Power Stroke diesel unit.
