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
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.
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.
"This has been the most reliable vehicle that I have ever owned. I have owned it for 5yrs and the only thing that I have done to it is change the oil and air filter and tires.
I am always impressed how much this van can hold. When we travel we take everything and anything that we might possibly need. When the kids were babies, we would take their highchair, swing, bouncy seat, plus all the luggage and toys the kids might want.
The only thing to consider when purchasing is the gas mileage. Mine gets 12mpgs around town and maybe 14 on the highway. But if you know that and are ok with it then this van can't be beat. It will run forever and will hold everything you could ever need."
Pros: "Rear access. Easy to park. Low cost insurance."
Cons: "15 mpg. Roof rust only affects paint, not metal."
