The Ford E series (Econoline) vehicles are passenger vans and trucks that were first introduced to the North American automotive market in 1961.These vans became increasingly popular over the years. In present times, the Ford E-Series holds the largest market share in the full-size van category, in the US. The first generation models (1961 to 1967) were equipped with a 144 CID 6-cylinder engine and a 3-speed manual transmission. The next generation models underwent significant redesigning as most vans were designed to hold an engine under a short hood. Third generation models manufactured between 1975 and 1991 witnessed several changes to the body style. The vehicles had a 4 speed automatic or manual transmission and different engine options. Some of them include the 300 CID I6, 302 CID-Windsor V8, 351-CID Windsor V8, 460-CID 385 V8, 6.9-Liter Navistar diesel V8 and a 7.3 Liter Navistar diesel V8 engine. Fourth generation models were designed to carry 15 passengers. Although these vans had more powerful engines like the 4.9 L inline six, 5.0, 7.5-Liter V8 and a 7.3 Liter Power Stroke diesel V8, the vans proved disastrous during rollover incidents due to the weight they bore. Ford then added a new edition to the E series lineup in 2001. The E-150 Traveler was designed bearing families in mind. 2004, 2006 and 2007 model year vans used more powerful engines while 2008 model year vans included better steering systems and upgrades to the exteriors. These vans are available as the Super Duty E series and the Super Duty F series. They’re powerful vans with high load bearing capability. The 2009 E series vans include several features like a new dashboard, in-dash navigation system, passenger side glove compartment and an optional rear-view backup camera. Ford dominates the full size passenger van market. It ranks high in terms of towing capacity and payload.
