2011 Ford E-150 Overview
Copious amounts of space for both cargo and passengers abound in the cavernous 2011 Ford E-150 van.
If you need to haul people around or if you need a van that can fit just about anything inside, then it’s a good idea to have the 2011 Ford E-150 is at your disposal. The E-150 is extremely flexible; it can be had in an eight-occupant configuration with two-bucket front seats and two rows of benches in the back for those looking to transport the crew. Conversely, if you have a ton of equipment you need to move, then the E-150 can be had as a cargo van with only the front bucket seats and an open cargo area in the rear. The cargo van maxes out at 120.6 inches behind the front seats allowing for approximately 10 feet of floor-space to work with.
There are two engine options that power the 2011 Ford E-150 van. A standard 225-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 receives 286 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. For more power, a 255-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 delivers 350 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a five-speed automatic with TorqShift. Both engines are FlexFuel E85 capable and receive 9-13 mpg in the city and 12-17 mpg on the highway. The 2011 Ford E-150 is part of the E-Series of vans, which include the heavier-duty E-250, E-350, and E-350 Super Duty. The E Series competes with the Dodge Sprinter and Chevrolet Express for super-van supremacy.
Access into the 2011 Ford E-150 is easy with swing-out 60/40-split doors on the passenger side, while a sliding cargo door is available as a no-cost option. Getting cargo in and out of the back of the E-150 is a snap due to the rear doors that swing out to a full 178 degrees. Chrome bumpers and aerodynamic headlights are available, while 16-inch steel wheels come standard.
Even though the E-150 is a work van, it can still be loaded with features. The top-of-the-line E-150 XLT Premium features privacy glass, power driver’s seat, running boards, leather captain’s chairs, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, audio input jack (iPod), SYNC, and a 6.5-inch in-dash display with DVD/CD/MP3 and navigation capability.
For those on the go, the Ford Work Solutions package consists of an in-dash computer, which includes available wireless accessories such as a printer and mouse to go with a wireless Internet connection. Keep track of tools stored in the van with Tool Link and talk to other vehicles in your fleet with Crew Chief, which is a communications and diagnostics system that allows you can keep track of maintenance and employees whereabouts.
Safety is no laughing matter for the 2011 Ford E-150. Dual front airbags and four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are standard on all trims, while traction control and an electronic stability control are only standard on recreational vans with gas-only engines. A factory-installed integrated trailer-brake controller and rearview backup camera are optional.
Take control of your fleet and enjoy the flexibility of transporting passengers or cargo in the spacious and capable 2011 Ford E-150 van.
