Re: Demise of the E-series

"The impact of new gas-mileage rules on passenger cars gets all the attention, but proposed increases apply to commercial vehicles too.
That means that automakers will be redesigning their commercial vans for better fuel efficiency too."

Re: Demise of the E-series

We have 2 Transits in our inventory and both drivers claim that they have plenty of power as long as you're going downhill.

I'm a little upset, can ya tell?

Commie bastards.

Re: Demise of the E-series

Yeah, but unfortunately, I generally have about a ton of tools and equipment to carry around, I foresee a future of going no where fast!

It will be a sad day when the last vans become scarce. Or worse, when mine gets pulled away.

Re: Demise of the E-series

The replacement looks like the transit, but only bigger. It's supposed to have a strong engine, but it's still just a V-6 (eco-boost and VCT), and it's a uni-body. Worst, though is the fact that there's really no room for shelving in the back. I think Ford's going to lose some service vans.

Re: Demise of the E-series

Now don't bring communists in to this. I'm a communist, but I'm not stupid enough to think that improving the MPG of passenger cars (or work trucks) by a tiny bit is really going to have any significant impact on pollution levels.

Last time I checked most pollution was industrial. Nobody's tightening regulations on these companies that outsource labor and ship they half-assed automobiles to the other side of the world on giant cargo ships. Automobiles that we could just as easily uh... build here in America.

What do they think these cargo ships burn, flower pedals and cinnamon? It's actually petrol fuel. Uhhh... TONS of petrol fuel. Literal shit tons of it.

So please, leave communism out of this, because it's purebred capitalist that devised this little scheme.
