2014 Ford E-250 Overview
- Only offered as a cargo van (no passenger applications)
- One of three Ford E-Series vans
- Two V-8 engine options, standard four-speed automatic
The 2014 Ford E-250 is a cargo van specialist that has the same engine choices as the smaller E-150, but is rated for more strenuous tasks and offers an extended length model that is 20-inches longer and offers more cargo flexibility.
The E-250’s styling, well there’s not much to say about it. It looks like a van, like the ones you see in movies, usually without windows. It competes with Chevrolet’s Express lineup and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for van supremacy. In addition to the heavy-duty E-250, the light-duty E-150 and the lineup topping E-350 are also offered.
The rear and side doors of the E-250 were designed with ease in mind; the rear doors almost open a full 180-degrees to give full access to the rear of the van for loading/unloading large cargo. On the passenger side, choose between 60/40-split swing-out doors or a sliding cargo door.
Under the hood, the E-250 features a 225-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 that makes 286 pounds-feet of torque as its base engine. 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.
Inside, the E-250 is only offered as a cargo van, and not a passenger van as well like its two stable mates. 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.
