I would assume they'll probably keep the E-450 around, since the Transit doesn't have anything in it's lineup with a similar GVWR.

Transit seems like a no-brainer for smaller school bus applications. It was only a matter of time. You would think the I-5 diesel would be a lot more efficient than the engines they currently run in those things.

t's interesting that Ford is still holding back fuel economy details on the I-5,
I wonder if it's good but not outstanding compared to the competition.

E450 will stay for a while but it will eventually give way to something else whether that be a Super Duty F-Series based chassis or a heavier version of the Transit, and I suspect the former will be the case.
