The first year on any new model vehicle is usually fraught with problems. I feel that the E450 is a very well proven chassis. Any answers?
Not to worry for 2016. Ford will make both Transit and Econoline cutaway chassis through 2019 at which time it is my understanding that the E450 will be phased out. The Transit chassis will initially not have the capacity of the E450 so certain smaller Class Cs may use it sooner but the heavy 3050 will stay on the E450 til 2020.
