Up to 15 passengers can be accommodated in some versions of the E-Series Passenger wagon, which gives it one of the highest capacities of any vehicle, short of shuttle buses. When properly configured, the E-Series vans are one of the few vehicles to offer such high tow ratings--up to 10,000 pounds. Ford has also kept the Econoline up-to-date with respect to connectivity and in-dash technology, as the E-Series vans offer its Sync system for Bluetooth hands-free calling, as well as a full navigation system.
With the E-Series EPA highway rating of 17 mpg and its 33-gallon fuel tank, it has a cruising range of well over 500 miles. Both available 5.4L or 6.8L engines are natural-gas compatible with a prep package--which could greatly reduce running costs in some situations.
