New for 2014
The 2014 Ford E-150 adds rear cargo doors that open up to 178 degrees, available eight-passenger seating for E350 Wagons, navigation system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, CrewChief diagnostics system for fleet buyers, and trailer brake controller.
The 2014 Ford E-150 is a commercial van available in three sizes, three engines, and passenger or cargo configurations.
The 2014 Ford E-150 is available with two V-8 engines, a 4.6-liter producing 225 hp and 286 lb-ft of torque and a 5.4-liter making 255 hp and 350 lb-ft, and a 6.8-liter V-10 with 308 hp and 420 lb-ft. Fuel economy is disappointingly low due to the old engines and heavy vehicle with the 4.6 models rated at 13/17 mpg city/highway and 5.4-liter variants at 12 mpg city. However, the van’s 10,000-pound maximum towing capacity in E-350 Super Duty Extended models is best-in-class while its capability to carry up to 15 passengers makes it ideal for hauling cargo or people.
Tech features such as Ford’s SYNC interface and a navigation system with a 6.5-inch touch screen are available, allowing drivers and passengers to integrate their portable devices with the vehicle through Bluetooth streaming.
After the new Ford Transit debuts, the automaker will begin phasing out the E-Series lineup.
Depending on the variant, the 2014 Ford E-150 has a two- to three-star rollover safety rating (out of a possible five stars).
