Ford Windstar Cargo Overview
The Ford Windstar Cargo minivan was a spinoff of the popular Ford Windstar van. The Windstar was manufactured from 1995 through 2003; the Windstar Cargo was introduced in 1999 and manufactured through 2003.
Windstar Cargo vans were especially popular with drivers needing adaptive conversions for wheelchair use; the roomy rear compartment and rugged suspension were a great fit for aftermarket electric lifts and ramps.
The Windstar Cargo was reasonably fuel-efficient for its day, and for its size: EPA fuel economy estimates were 17 miles per gallon city, 22 miles per gallon highway. Still, some of this came at the expense of power, as the Windstar Cargo came off the line with a 3.0 liter V-6 engine that wasn't quite enough to give it much zip.
The Windstar line was discontinued in 2004 in favor of the Ford Freestar.
