KBB Expert Review

Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

Both the 2014 Ford E-Series van and E-Series wagon have vast interior space to serve their particular purposes. Cargo models can be equipped with two bucket seats up front and an empty bay, or crew style with a 2nd-row bench seat for three. The real beauty of the cargo van's interior is its ability to be customized with racks, tools and the like. The E-Series Wagon, meanwhile, puts its priority on transporting people. It can seat from seven to 15 people, depending on model and seat layout. Up front, each van is defined by a vast dashboard with dated but easy-to-use dials and controls for audio and climate functions.

Exterior   photo

As should be expected in a full-size van, form follows function. And like the half-century's worth of predecessors before it, the 2014 Ford E-Series keeps its box-on-wheels formula intact. Extended-length cargo and passenger models can be had to accommodate more goods or people. Cargo versions of the E-Series can be equipped with side and rear windows, and both models can be had with a sliding side door for easier entry and exit. Large side mirrors aid visibility, and can be ordered with a power-telescoping feature for even better sightlines. If you have a conversion project in mind, the E-Series is available with factory-installed pre-wiring packages to assist your installer.

Notable Standard Equipment

The 2014 E-Series has perhaps the shortest list of standard equipment among modern automobiles. Base versions of both the E-Series van and wagon include air conditioning, front-row vinyl flooring, a tilt steering wheel, intermittent windshield wipers, and a 2-speaker audio system with a basic auxiliary jack for portable music players. In these base versions, the windows and door locks are still operated manually. XLT wagon models add a high-capacity front and rear air conditioning system, cruise control, and an electronic message center. Standard safety features include driver and front passenger airbags and stability control with rollover mitigation.

Notable Optional Equipment

Basic creature comforts available for the 2014 E-Series include a power driver's seat, remote keyless entry, privacy glass, power windows/door locks, cruise control, and a 6-speaker audio prep package. Also on the list are a number of seating configurations for wagon models, fabric-trimmed seating surfaces, chrome-finished bumpers, and alloy wheels. In-vehicle electronics come in the form of Ford's voice-activated SYNC software, a navigation system, a rear backup camera, and Crew Chief telematics that help track fleet vehicles and monitor their idle time, fuel efficiency and more.

Under the Hood

The 2014 Ford E-Series offers a choice of three gasoline engines – two V8s or a range-topping V10. The E-150 and E-250 trims come with the base 4.6-liter V8 that provides adequate power, or the optional 5.4-liter V8 that is standard on E-350 models. Ford's big 6.8-liter V10 is optional on E-250 and E-350 models. All 2014 E-Series vans are rear-wheel drive and use automatic transmissions. The V8 engines are mated to an antiquated 4-speed automatic, while the V10 uses a 5-speed. Towing capacity ranges from a maximum of 6,500 pounds for the base V8 to 10,000 pounds for models equipped with the torque-rich V10. As you might expect, fuel economy isn't top of mind with any of these engines. The 2015 Transit promises greater efficiency via smaller and more sophisticated gasoline and diesel engines.

Pricing Notes

The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the 2014 Ford E-Series cargo van and passenger wagon begins around $29,600 and $31,200, respectively. E-350 Super Duty models start in the neighborhood of $34,000 and can top $45,000 fully equipped. The GMC Savana, Chevrolet Express and Ram Promaster have similar starting prices, while Nissan NV opens under $27,000. For something smaller and more fuel efficient, the Nissan NV200 cargo van starts at just over $21,000, while the compact Ford Transit Connect is under $23,000.
