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.
No changes are in store for the 2014 Ford E-Series, which will cease production after this year. (E-Series Cutaways and Stripped Chassis models, however, will continue to be built for commercial applications.)
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).
