Options include a 255-horsepower 5. The panel vans make wonderful conversion projects and come with a long list of optional fittings to make the job easier for the contractor. Whether you own a business, are responsible for shuttling an army of people or just enjoy hitting the open road in a custom conversion camper, there is a Ford E-Series Van that can get the job done. A look at the Fair Purchase Price shows that the E-150 is being sold at or below invoice. If you're looking for a family hauling vehicle, the E-Series is not as refined or as quiet inside as a full-size Expedition or Excursion.
Large flush-mounted side glass provides an excellent view from within. The E-Series Vans are expected to hold an average resale value on par with the Chevrolet Express Vans. The steering is moderately dampened to give the driver some sense of the road, and the ride is fairly smooth when the vehicle is fully loaded. Ford has done a good job minimizing the vastness of the E-Series' instrument panel, at least from the driver's point of view. The E-Series offers a strong line of engine choices, with the base V8 delivering good power and torque for the standard wheelbase models. It's still a reach to access the audio and climate controls, but redundant controls on the steering wheel greatly reduce the number of times you'll need to stretch your arm. The same figures hold true for the E-250 and E-350 models.
In a nod to better visibility, the lower edge of the side glass extends far down the van's side, giving the passengers a good view in all directions and allowing the driver to see objects that might not appear in the sideview mirrors. Ford has done a good job making sure that certain aspects of the E-Series are not as gargantuan as the rest of the vehicle, such as placing the door handles down low so you don't have to reach up to operate them. Though it has undergone extensive reworking over the years, the E-Series still retains the same basic shape that has defined Ford vans since the late 1970s. Another appealing option is the Masterack work bin storage system, which includes steel shelving, drawers and cabinets. Available in half, three-quarter and one-ton models, the E-Series continues to offer the kind of durable and reliable work van upon which American businesses have come to rely. Seating in the passenger van versions now includes 11- and 14-passenger configurations with an open center isle.
Extended-length E-250 and E-350 models offer a choice of powerplants, including the Triton V10 and the Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel. . If you require a van with all-wheel drive, only the Chevrolet Express Van can fulfill your needs. . .
