2014 Ford E-250 vs. 2014 Honda Odyssey Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford E-250 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Odyssey.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford E-250 as you will with the Honda Odyssey, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford E-250 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Odyssey. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford E-250 is much higher than that for the Honda Odyssey.

Dimensions
The Ford E-250 is about the same width as the Honda Odyssey. If you go with the Ford E-250, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Odyssey.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford E-250 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda Odyssey.

Handling
The Ford E-250 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Honda Odyssey, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford E-250 is clearly the choice over the Honda Odyssey for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford E-250 and the Honda Odyssey.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford E-250 seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Odyssey. With the Ford E-250, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Odyssey.

Warranty
The Ford E-250 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Odyssey.
