2014 Ford E150 is part of Ford’s E Series of full size cargo and passenger vans. This series came out of earlier popular line of Ford vans called ford Econline. It exists since 2001 when Econline and Econline Wagon changed their names. Now Ford wants to discontinue its E Series, although it is one of the most popular line of vehicles in the United States. They want to do that in order to make Ford Transit line of vans the primary van line for the whole world. This is not the first time Ford is doing this and there are rumors that similar changes will also influence some other Ford models, like Ford Flex for example. 2014 model year is the last year of E Series fifth generation, In spite of all the announcements about discontinuing this popular line of vans, some of the American E Series enthusiasts still have hopes that in 2015 model year. If that does happen on the other hand, it will probably be just a step towards making it more similar to Ford Transit.
2014 Ford E150 review
This is definitely the most popular van in United States and it can be seen literately everywhere in its passenger and cargo versions. Accept that it is also popular for the large families that can’t fit themselves in a mini-van. Its exterior is more made for the purpose than to look nice and flashy. This is partly why E Series vans lost track with some of the more premium vans in the industry like: Ram Promaster and Nissan NV. Depending on the kind of a van you want to buy it can come with or without side windows, sliding doors and other passenger- and cargo-only exterior features.
Ford E series interior
Interior is not much different than other vans of its class. Cargo version can come with two bucket seats in the front or with additional second row large bench seat for three passengers. It comes with crew chief telematics that allows the fleet owner to have instant communication with the working van, to track its shipments etc, which is great for a businessman and not so great for the vans driver. With other interior features there are also navigation system with 6,5” display, SYNC system with integrated hands-free Bluetooth technology for smartphones and other devices. Wagon model has enough space for 7 or 8 passengers, and beside that it has enough space for passenger’s cargo.
For passengers safety there are many features. All models of the Ford E series Wagon are equipped with AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC), ABS, Tire pressure monitoring system, 3 point seat belts for all seating positions, etc.
