Used Ford E-Series Wagon Vans
Second Generation, 2008-2014
Comfort: In all of the E-Series wagon options, both driver and front passengers enjoy roomy, supportive seating. Passengers in the back also will stay comfortable, but the seats you'll find are what you might expect in a large passenger van--bench seating with various fabrics depending on the year and the trim.
Technology & Convenience: You won't find a lot of standard features on this commercial van, but what you will find depends on the trim. The base XL is pretty spartan, with vinyl and A/C and a basic AM/FM radio, but you can also opt for the plusher XLT or, in some years, the Chateau trim.
Safety: Your Econoline helps you maintain control of your ride, even in bad weather, thanks to anti-lock brakes and stability control. Front airbags offer protection during a collision.
Performance: The Econoline wagon was designed to help you haul plenty of people in the easiest way possible--this is the ultimate in large family or small singing group transportation. The E-Series Wagons offer three engines: 4.6-L V8, 5.4-L V8, and 6.8-L V10. These engines range from 225 to 305 horsepower, giving you the power you need.
What Drivers Love about the Used Ford E-Series Wagons
The E-Series Wagon is extremely popular because it offers maximum passenger space for a convenient price. Another bonus is that, over the years, Ford never made any major changes to its dimensions, thereby ensuring that you can keep any customization that you do to your van for a long time to come. You can even move them to from your old E-Series wagon to a new one, should you upgrade your fleet.
Used Ford Econoline Commercial Vans Buyers Beware
If you happen to come across an E-Series wagon from a previous generation, dating back before the 2008 model year, make sure its capabilities meet your needs. Outwardly, these older models look like the new generation. But, under the hood, you'll find a variety of different engines, including an inline-6, one of three gas-powered V8s, or a diesel-powered V8. And, should you decide on one of these older models, you'll also want to check its features list for important safety gear. Anti-lock brakes and passenger front airbags weren't standard equipment on the Econoline until 2000, and those manufactured after 2008 had modernized steering, braking, and suspension systems.
