Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2013 model year marks the end of the line for the iconic Ford E-Series. Instead of updating the age-old E-Series platform, the Blue Oval has opted to replace its best-selling van with the all-new Ford Transit (arriving early 2014).
Customers who purchase the E-350 receive AdvanceTrac traction control teamed with Roll Stability Control (RSC), and recent improvements to the suspension increase the maximum gross vehicle weight rating to 14,500 pounds. Ford's SYNC communication and audio system is also now available for the E-Series.
For 2009, the Ford E-Series receives a new dash and door panels, more comfortable driver and passenger seats and wider opening rear doors. New options include a factory-installed navigation system and a first-in-class in-dash computer that can access the internet via the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network.
For over 50 years, the Ford E-Series van has made a name for itself as transport for cargo and passengers. In that time, Ford's venerable van has become a workhorse depended on daily by businesses, fleet services, and families large enough to form their own hockey team. But time has caught up with the Ford E-Series, and 2014 marks the final year for the aging carryall as it makes way for the technologically superior and more efficient 2015 Ford Transit. Though the 2014 E-Series is competing with fresher rivals such as the Ram Promaster and Nissan NV, it's impossible to ignore this full-size van's history of commercial service and the familiar bond it has formed with tradesmen and fleet drivers alike.

"This baby, keeps going and going and going. Mine is 17+ years old with 148k (I babied her). I'm just now starting to get to putting a few $$ into her for maintenance items (things that most cars would have already experienced). That is ok. She is a very reliable friend. I should be able to get another 5-10 years with standard maintenance. Best vehicle I've owned."
