2014 Ford E-Series Wagon Overview

The 2014 Ford E-Series Passenger Wagon is now available on a limited basis for those who need to tote a lot of people. This elderly 8- to 15-place people-hauler is essentially unchanged from 2013 (or from a few years prior to that, for that matter), but its cargo-oriented Van sibling is now a relic, with full production discontinued after the 2013 model year. Even the Wagon seems available only on a limited basis.

In any case, look for this wooly wagon to again come in three trims: the half-ton E-150, the one-ton E-350 and the stretched-out, one-ton E-350 Ext. All are available, in a base, a midlevel XL or the marginally up-featured XLT trim level. Each is, of course, offered only with rear-wheel drive (RWD), but cargo area remains an impressive 236.5 cubic feet in the regular-length E-Series (with the rear seats removed) and a whopping 275.1 cubic feet in the Ext edition with its added 20 inches of overall length.

Alas, this dinosaur is still a beast on the road, with ponderous moves, plenty of body lean, anemic acceleration with the standard engines and few amenities offered as standard equipment.

The E-Series Wagon is available with the choice of 3 engines. Standard in the E-150 XL and XLT is a Flex Fuel (FFV) 4.6-liter V8 that mates with the antiquated 4-speed automatic transmission for 225 hp and 286 lb-ft of torque. Look for mileage estimated at a woeful 13 mpg city/16 highway.

A somewhat peppier 5.4-liter FFV V8 graces the E-350 and E-350 Ext Though this up-powered V8 throws down 255 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, the retrograde 4-speed automatic dampens its potential, and mileage estimates remain at 11/15.

Should some seriously useful power be demanded, the E-350 trims can be delivered with an available 6.8-liter V10 powerplant and 5-speed shiftable automatic combo that puts out 305 hp and a trailer-ready 420 lb-ft of torque. Properly equipped with an available Class IV towing package, this big V10 can haul up to 10,000 pounds of trailer, but mileage is a frustrating 10/13.

Feature-wise, look for the 2014 E-Series XL to boast such Spartan adornments as 16-inch steel wheels outside, with vinyl upholstery, tilt-wheel steering, air conditioning an AM/FM stereo sporting 6 speakers and auxiliary MP3 input the interior. The XLT variations of this heavy-duty van—though not exactly luxury laden—do add standard cloth upholstery, front captain’s chairs, cruise control, rear air conditioning and heating and full power accessories, including power-adjustable outside mirrors.

Optional equipment for the latest E-Series iteration is expected to be comparatively plentiful, and to include navigation, Ford’s popular SYNC infotainment, satellite radio, upgraded exterior and interior appointments, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors and CNG/LPG engine prep for either V8. The E-Series XLT Premium Package, meanwhile, can be delivered with a number of the above extra amenities, as well as a power-adjustable driver’s seat, rear captain’s chairs (8-passenger versions only), Bluetooth hands-free calling, remote keyless entry and a dashboard-mounted electronic vehicle maintenance display.

Finally, standard safety equipment of note aboard all 2014 E-Series Wagons is expected to include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, and a post-collision safety system, with a passive antitheft system remaining available to both trim levels.


Have Laptop. Will Travel. I'm retired and travelling the country in a 34' motor home. I'm really digging meeting people . . and sometimes their cars . . . getting a sense of what makes this nation tick. The plan is to visit all the national parks in the continental US, then cruise to Alaska to visit Denali, and to Hawaii to check out Haleakala and the Hawaii Volcano's national parks. Anyhow, when I'm not horsing the motor home around the roadways, I'm tooting around in the 2012 Ford Focus that we tow behind, or making runs to Home Depot and various malls with the 2004 F-150 that just won't die.

I found where I should be able to do this using the select/reset stem but it won't go into the set-up mode.
