2007 Ford E350 Super Duty Cargo Review

By

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. With a wide number of configurations and a choice between three gasoline V8s and one diesel engine, the E-Series continues to tackle the missions too big for the average pickup or SUV. 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.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you need to move a lot of cargo or people, few vehicles are better equipped to do so than the E-Series. With seating for up to 15 passengers, the E-Series is the darling of the shuttle community. Did we mention a properly-equipped E-350 Super Duty can tow up to 10,000 pounds?

You May Not Like This Car If...

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. An SUV may fit your needs and your driveway better than a full-size van. If you require a van with all-wheel drive, only the Chevrolet Express Van can fulfill your needs.

What's Significant About This Car?

For 2007, Electronic Throttle Control and an engine oil cooler are now standard, as is a larger rear anti-roll bar and driveshaft. Roll Stability Control and the Reverse Sensing System become optional on some models.

Driving the E350 Super Duty Cargo

Driving Impressions Driving an E-Series Van is somewhat like piloting a big SUV, only there is a bit more rear overhang. 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.

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. 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.

Rack System
A new QuietFlex rack system provides quieter operation coupled with greater flexibility.

Turbo Diesel
The 6.0-liter turbo diesel is quieter and more powerful than Ford's previous diesel offering.

Interior

Ford has done a good job minimizing the vastness of the E-Series' instrument panel, at least from the driver's point of view. 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. Seating in the passenger van versions now includes 11- and 14-passenger configurations with an open center isle.

Exterior

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. Large flush-mounted side glass provides an excellent view from within. The panel vans make wonderful conversion projects and come with a long list of optional fittings to make the job easier for the contractor.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The base E-150 XL includes a 225-horsepower V8, four-speed automatic transmission, air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), dual side mirrors, dual 12-volt outlets, swing-out side doors, AM/FM stereo, eight-passenger seating, tilt wheel, intermittent wipers and power steering. The XLT trim adds chrome bumpers, six-speaker stereo with CD, dual cloth captain's chair seating, cruise control and power windows, mirrors and door locks.

Optional Equipment

Options include a 255-horsepower 5.4-liter V8, a 305-horsepower 6.8-liter Triton V10 and a 235-horsepower 6.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel. Also on the list are a number of seating configurations, rear air conditioning, CD player, aluminum wheels, sliding side door, telescopic side mirrors, power driver's seat, a trailer towing package and the luxurious Chateau package. Another appealing option is the Masterack work bin storage system, which includes steel shelving, drawers and cabinets.

Under the Hood

The E-Series offers a strong line of engine choices, with the base V8 delivering good power and torque for the standard wheelbase models. Extended-length E-250 and E-350 models offer a choice of powerplants, including the Triton V10 and the Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel. While there is no denying the Power Stroke's ability to tow, the added premium of over $5,000 is difficult to justify, especially when the V10 offers more horsepower and nearly identical maximum torque, though at a higher rpm.

Pros: "great for families with more than 3 kids"

Cons: "no headrests on bench seats"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"We had 6 kids at one time, so a minivan was out of the question. This van provided us all the room we needed on trips. My wife could sit in one of the bench seats and attend to little infants in carseats. She even nursed babies when absolutely necessary. No that our kids are teenagers, and the two older ones are out of the nest, the van allows the other 4 to spread out. The only thing I don't like is the lack of headrests on the bench seats. Not as safe as it could be. But the van has been very reliable, not needing much in the way of repairs."

Owned it 13 years. Very satisfied.

Cons: "A little side door rattling but not many "cons""

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought this van in 2001. It had 13,000 miles on it. I've had it 13 years and it only has 70,000 and I would imagine has a lot of use left but I just don't need it anymore. My wife and I would vacation with it. It has 4 bench seats and we'd put in just the second one back. We had a nice bed behind it and our luggage, golf clubs and a cooler up front. It's easy to take the seats in and out and drives very smooth and cruise control is great. I also enjoy the sitting up pretty high compared to a car. Since we didn't have a lot of weight in it we got 17-19 MPG and with a 35 gal. tank had really good range. At night I'd crack the side windows and always slept great in it. We'd get a tent site at an RV park so we had use of bathrooms and showers so only $15-$20 per night."

Pros: "Good value, strong van"

Cons: "Stopping production of this workhorse of a van"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The 2000 E 250 was the most reliable. The 2007 model needs a new transmission every 125,000-150,000 miles. This is the only drawback I could find for these vans. We also carry the maximum weight with no problems overall. To stop production of this van will be a mistake."
