Overview

What's New for 2014:

  • Unchanged for 2014
  • To be replaced by all-new 2015 Ford Transit

Introduction
With the debut of the all-new 2015 Ford Transit, 2014 marks the final year of production for the venerable E-Series cargo van and passenger wagon models. Offered in regular- and extended-length versions in E-150, E-250, or E-350 series, this rear-wheel-drive (RWD) workhorse van gets the job done with one of three available V-8 engines, can be ordered in a multitude of trim configurations, and accommodates up to 15 passengers in wagon format. Competitors include the Chevrolet Express, GMC Savana, Nissan NV 1500/2500/3500, and the Ram ProMaster.

Models and Features
Though they differ somewhat based on series (E-150, E-250, E-350), the primary trim levels for the 2014 E-Series passenger wagon include the XL, XLT and XLT Premium. Base XL vans are equipped with air conditioning, split side and rear doors, tilt steering wheel, radio with an auxiliary audio input jack, manual locks and windows, vinyl flooring and upholstery, and 16-in. steel wheels. From there, the XLT goes a bit more upscale with front and rear air conditioning, carpeting and floor mats, cruise control, power windows and door locks, CD player, cloth upholstery, and chrome exterior trim. The XLT Premium is distinguished by its standard Sync infotainment system with satellite radio, front- and second-row captain's chairs, power driver's seat, running boards, 16-in. alloy wheels, and keyless entry.

In cargo van form, the 2014 Ford E-Series is offered in commercial and recreational guises, with the former closely matching the XL and the latter mimicking the XLT/XLT Premium in terms of content.

Options and Packages
Options abound for the 2014 E-Series, with highlights including towing packages, side sliding doors, navigation system, telescoping exterior mirrors, heavy-duty batteries and alternators, various racks and bins (van), rear step-up bumper, and more.

Under the Hood
With regard to the E-Series' powertrains, Ford offers a 4.6-liter V-8 engine that produces 225 horsepower and 286 lb.-ft. of torque, all of which is delivered to the rear wheels via a 4-speed automatic transmission. In terms of size and power, a 5.4-liter V-8 boasting 255 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque managed by either the 4-speed or a 5-speed automatic transmission is the next level up. Available only on the E-350 is a 6.8-liter V-10 that generates 305 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, output that's controlled by the 5-speed automatic gearbox. A compressed natural gas/liquid propane gas (CNG/LPG) prep kit is available for the V-10 and larger V-8 engines.

Ford claims the 2014 E-Series can tow up to 10,000 lbs. (E-350).

Fuel Economy
The E-Series, like other full-size body-on-frame vans, has survived for decades thanks to its rugged underpinnings and despite poor fuel efficiency. Current EPA estimates suggest drivers of the light-duty E-150 fitted with the 4.6-liter V-8 can expect to average only 13 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway. Those who opt for the 5.4-liter V-8 will see the city rating drop to 12 mpg. And, as one might expect, the outlook for the E-350's V-10 engine isn't any better, as it manages just 10 mpg around town and 13 mpg on the highway.

Safety Ratings and Technology
As this overview is written, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has rated the crashworthiness of the 2014 Ford E-Series.

Standard safety items on the 2014 E-Series include 2 air bags and roll stability control, with options consisting of a rearview camera and rear park-assist sensors.
