2012 Ford E-250 Overview
Rated for heavier duty than the E-150, the E-250 Super Duty has the same engine choices but comes in both regular and extended lengths. Extended vans are 20 inches longer overall. Passenger wagons aren't available in this series.
All models receive a standard MP3 jack, and cast-aluminum wheels are a new option. A dual battery system replaces the auxiliary battery configuration as an option.
The Ford E-Series features a large front grille and squared-off headlights. Also, the rear doors can swing out a full 178 degrees. Swing-out 60/40-split doors are standard on the passenger side, but a sliding cargo door is available as a no-cost option. Swing-out doors are the only choice in the rear. Exterior features include standard 16-inch steel wheels and available chrome bumpers.
Aimed at commercial applications, the cargo-hauling E-250 is fitted with two bucket seats. Interior features include standard air conditioning, an available Sync multimedia system, power windows, locks and mirrors, in-dash computer with high-speed internet access (mouse and printer can be connected), and an optional navigation system with real-time traffic data and fuel prices.
Two engines are available for the E-250, a standard 225-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 with 286 pounds-feet of torque and an available 255-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 with 350 pounds-feet of torque. A standard four-speed automatic with overdrive is the only transmission option.
Standard safety features include dual front airbags, four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, and electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control. A backup camera and factory-installed integrated trailer-brake controller are optional.
