2007 Ford E250 Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Ford adds standard electronic throttle control and an oil cooler, and offers three new colors — Forest Green, Pueblo Gold and Dark Blue Pearl — on its biggest van for 2007.

A QuietFlex Racks and Bins system is available as a no-charge option.

A 4.6-liter V-8 is the base engine. An electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models.

Formerly called the Econoline, the rear-wheel-drive E-150 comes in only one size. Passenger versions are sold in XL, XLT and Chateau Wagon trim levels. Heavier-duty models — the three-quarter-ton E-250 and one-ton E-350 Super Duty — are also available.

(Skip to details on the: E-250, E-350 Super Duty)


Exterior
Offered in one length, both the E-150 van and wagon have a 138-inch wheelbase and stretch to 212 inches long overall. Swing-out 60/40-split doors are installed on the right side, but a sliding cargo door is available as a no-cost option. Swing-out doors are the only choice at the rear.

Chrome bumpers and aerodynamic headlamps are mounted on the XLT. The Chateau edition features aluminum wheels and running boards, as well as two-tone paint.


Interior
Aimed at commercial applications, the cargo-hauling van is fitted with two bucket seats up front. Passenger models have seating for eight occupants on two front buckets and a pair of three-passenger bench seats. Captain's chairs in the Chateau version replace the center bench, reducing seating positions to seven. Air conditioning, interval wipers and a tilt steering wheel are standard. The XLT adds carpeting, cruise control, and power windows, locks and mirrors. An overhead console and keyless entry are included in the Chateau wagon.

Cargo volume in the E-150 is 236.5 cubic feet. An optional cargo organizer can be installed behind the rear bench seat.


Under the Hood
Two engines are available for the E-150. The base engine is a 225-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8. Stepping up a notch is a 255-hp, 5.4-liter V-8. Each drives a four-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the E-150 van can tow as much as 6,900 pounds, which is 400 pounds more than the equivalent E-150 passenger wagon.

Safety
All E-Series models have dual front airbags. Four-wheel all-disc antilock brakes and front seat belt pretensioners are standard. Side-impact airbags are not available.

Driving Impressions
After a few minutes behind the wheel, it's nearly possible to forget the E-150's truck origins. Engine drone is less noticeable than in Ford vans of the distant past. With relatively light steering, an E-150 maneuvers almost as easily as a smaller van. On the other hand, more effort is necessary when parking the van and when judging your position on the highway.

The 5.4-liter V-8 is strong enough to deliver satisfying and safe response. Ride quality is decent, but it's not as well cushioned as most minivans. Compared with many smaller vans, the E-150 demands more steering correction on straightaways, but it's reasonably stable. Drivers enjoy a commanding view, and getting in and out isn't too difficult despite the high stance.


E-250
Rated for heavier duty than the E-150, the E-250 van has the same engine choices but comes in both regular and extended lengths. Extended vans are 20 inches longer overall but have the same 138-inch wheelbase; maximum cargo volume is 275.1 cubic feet. The maximum gross vehicle weight rating for the E-250 is 8,600 pounds, versus a 7,000-pound GVWR for the E-150. Passenger wagons aren't available in this series. Back to top

E-350 Super Duty
Available in regular and extended lengths, the E-350 Super Duty has a maximum GVWR of 9,500 pounds. Cutaway versions are also available. The regular-length E-350 seats seven, eight, 11 or 12 people; extended-length vans seat 11, 12, 14 or 15 occupants.

A 6.0-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel rated at 235 hp and 440 pounds-feet of torque is optional in the E-350, where it mates with a five-speed TorqShift automatic transmission. The standard E-350 engine is a 5.4-liter V-8, but a 6.8-liter V-10 that generates 305 hp and 420 pounds-feet of torque can be installed.

A powertrain control module allows elevated idle speed in order to operate accessories. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control is standard on wagons with the 5.4-liter V-8. Back to top

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
