The base 2010 Ford E-Series Wagon E-150 XL is lean, if not especially mean, and will get eight passengers to their destinations effectively, though not stylishly. As with the entire regular-length E-Series lineup, this cavernous wagon can, with the rear seats removed, hold up to 237 cubic feet of cargo, while standard equipment includes only vinyl upholstery, front bucket seats, removable rear seats, tilt-wheel steering, air conditioning, and an AM/FM stereo with six speakers. Options include DVD navigation and satellite radio, as well as step running boards, Bluetooth communications technology, power accessories, rearview camera, rear air conditioning, and an in-dash computer with wireless mouse and printer. Safety-wise, optional daytime running lights, a remote anti-theft alarm system, and a dash-mounted passenger-side airbag deactivation system complement standard four-wheel disc ABS and traction/stability control.
For 2010, the E-Series Wagon E-150 XL carries a standard 4.6-liter Flex Fuel V8 and four-speed automatic transmission that puts out 225 hp and 286 lb-ft of torque. This equates to some 6,500 pounds of trailer capacity, and, though figures are not available, more than its share of gas. A more viable choice for heavier-duty usage is the available 5.4-lter V8, also with E85-capable flex fuel technology, and its accompanying four-speed automatic. Trailering capacity is increased to 7,500 pounds with no significant loss of fuel efficiency.
