This is a question that's on everyone's mind lately. The production of the Ford Transit has had a few delays as the chassis undergoes federal compliance testing and as Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant is being re-tooled for the production of the Transit.
In February we received "official" word that the Transit would begin shipping in January 2014. However, Ford's website is currently stating a shipment date of Summer 2014.
The Mobility Alliance has been in close contact with Ford in regards to the new Transit and Transit Connect, and we will soon be examining both for mobility modification possibilities.
Ford will continue to produce the E-Series Wagon, Cargo, and R.V. Converter through the 2014 model year without changes to the current design.
