Ford Cancels Plans to Build 2012 E350 Diesel Cars
According to an inside source, Ford has cancelled any plans to fit their E-Series van line with a new diesel engine. Diesel van production stopped during the 2010 model year, after the 6.0L was discontinued. Ford was rumored to be working on fitting the new 6.4L or 6.7L diesel into the E-Series for 2012 model production but that has since been terminated. Ford has left the diesel van segment wide open for their competitors (Chevy Express, GMC Savana and MB Sprinter) to control.
