Ford will be manufacturing the Ford Transit or T Series in the US. Same name as the little cargo van we have currently, but the Transit cargo van has the same choices you have with a sprinter, wheelbase 3 choices and roof height 3 choices. Europe has a multitude of diesels to choose from. The US market will likely get one choice of diesel engine.

A diesel is in the plans for the US market- four cylinder or V6 unknown at this time. Most likely a 3.0 L V6 diesel - like the sprinter. The gas engine will likely be a 3.5 L ecoboost V6. So if you want to drag race a sprinter you will be smoking them. Some how that just seems wrong, but whatever.

So a van with same capacities as a sprinter that can be bought at your Ford dealer. It will be interesting to see in the next few years if the the new and used sprinter market offers better prices with the competition of the T series.

Not if your launch is hours away on a two-lane highway constipated by sheep, whether they're driving Sprinters or Cadillac CTS-Vs. The powers that be oughtta bump up the speed limits by 1 mph for every mph of wind.
