woo-hoo.In North America, customers can choose from several engines, including the proven 3.5-litre EcoBoost or a powerful diesel option;
Too bad we aren't getting the diesel AWD drivetrains they are getting in Europe.
For Europe, a full range of Transit bodystyles and derivatives, offering front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, will be powered by the latest 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel.

I don't practice llanteria
I guess no one got my humor. Basically they have one design, keep it like that for a year, then turn the tables to a fresh new design. Not like a 2002 civic and a 2005 civic where they just change the lights and grille type thing.
On that notw, Ford has done like Hyundai and did a comple 180 On their design in comparison to previous generation models: ex would be 2009 Fusion to 2010 Fusion or 2010 Sonata to 2011 Sonata. Completely different look
Easy like Sunday Morning.
I guess the 360 thing didn't bother me. I get memos at work where we're told to do a 360 review of a software product or something. They're saying "look all around it", like all 360 degrees. When I read a 360 degree design change, I read that to mean the whole thing was updated, not just a nose job. I believe we saw something like that with the Econoline, where the nose was updated but the rest of the van was left alone.
I really really like this new TC, the Transit however, I'm not too huge of a fan of, but seeing how well the Sprinter is selling I'm guessing there's a huge market just opening for these vans in NA.
Also I hope that by "powerful diesel option" they don't mean some 7.0L Powerstroke..The Sprinter does fine with the Bluetec as its ONLY option (It is the only option, no?) so I see no problem with a similar engine in the Transit.
