2014 Ford E-150 Overview
- One of three Ford E-Series vans
- Two V-8 engine options, standard four-speed automatic
- Can tow up to 7,000 pounds
The flexible 2014 Ford E-150 is offered in cargo and passenger models, excelling in either application.
The E-150 carries over without any real changes for 2014. Its styling? Well there’s not much to say about that, other than it looks like a van. Like the ones you see in movies, usually without windows. The E-150 competes with Chevrolet’s Express lineup and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for van supremacy.
Designed with ease of loading and unloading in mind, the rear and side doors of the E-150 were almost open a full 180-degrees. This gives full access to the rear of the van for loading/unloading large cargo, and the same is true of the side doors as well, which come in a 60/40-split. A sliding cargo door is optional.
Under the hood, there two engine options. A 225-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 that makes 286 pounds-feet of torque is standard. A more powerful 255-hp, 5.4-liter V-8 that makes 350 pounds-feet of torque is optional. Both are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The E-150 can tow up to 7,000 pounds.
Inside, the E-150’s interior changes depending on application; cargo models seat two in a pair of front bucket seats, while passenger models can seat up to eight thanks to two three-person rear benches (captain’s chairs in the second row are optional, and lower capacity to seven). Air conditioning is standard, but pretty much everything else is optional including Ford’s SYNC voice command system, power windows/locks, and a navigation system.
Standard safety features include front airbags, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control.
