When it comes to hauling substantial amounts of people and cargo, it's difficult to think of a more capable choice than the 2013 Ford E-Series van. With a resume that stretches back over 50 years, the E-Series continues to build upon its reputation as the workhorse of the American commercial industry. On the technology front, the optional Crew Chief telematics system provides operators with the real-time data they need to manage their fleets and reduce fuel costs. In wagon form, the 15-passenger E-350 extended version delivers an impressive measure of people moving power for fleet shuttle services or the Partridge family of the 21st century. While rivals like the GMC Savana, Chevrolet Express, and new Ford Transit Connect each offer high-levels of utilitarian might, the evergreen E-Series remains the benchmark of the full-size van segment.

"I recently purchased the 08' E-250 for my service business. It came equipped with service racks and bins and the fold-down type ladder rack. It is still untested although so far, I like what I see. My previous vehicles have all been GMC dating back to 1984 when I owned a Ford Ranger 4WD truck. Just a few comparisons... The 4.6 liter V-8(225 hp) does not compare favorably with the small block GMC V-8(5.0) The exterior styling is not quite as refined as the GMC Savana, but is good enough. The interior styling is better than GMC. The roadability compares about the same with the GMC Savana, but not quite as good IMO. Braking is adequate and comfort is good. Since the vehicle is new, these comparisons may be inaccurate.... but overall, I believe the E-250 Cargo van will prove to be a solid purchase for a bit less money than a comparable GMC model."

"I own 3 Ford vans E150, 2 E350's without a doubt Ford vans are the BEST, rugged & reliable. My E-150 is a 2002, I bought in 2009 for $4500, 22k, best buy ever, never put one cent into it, 60K now & I'm selling it for $5000. Bought a'94 E-350 in '04, 35K, $5000, drove into the dirt. My latest E-350, '01, bought 3/2012, 40k for $9000. now have 55K not one penny in repairs. Ford's biggest BLUNDER is discontinuing the E-vans, the transits are too small, & not strong enough engine & suspension, for the "trades"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
