2014 Transit - I5 Powerstroke Diesel - E Series Replacement

Hey have you guys seen the new transit being produced by ford sometime in 2014? Little late to the game but pretty cool. I wish they would post more about the I 5 Powerstroke they are putting in it. Maybe that engine will make its way into other products (F150 maybe?). I am very interested in this vehicle as I think it would help my crew better than the pick ups we run. Let me know your guys thoughts.

and most americans are too eat up with the Prius and other econo garbage cars to realize the true benefits of a small turbo diesel. hell, Subaru has a Flat 4 Diesel in japan, but we dont get it here. Toyota has a HiLux diesel, but we dont get it here. i feel like the market for a compact or midsized diesel would be awesome. the economy and power of a diesel without the 3/4ton or larger package. not saying the capacity of a large truck, just better economy and payload for a small truck.
