2013 Ford E-150 OVERVIEW

The Ford E-Series dates back to the 1961 model year, when Ford released the Econoline van lineup. Just eight years later, the "E" designation took hold, as the E-100, E-200 and E-300 series of Econolines made their debut. Coming into the 2013 model year, the E-150 is available in either a commercial van or a passenger van, which is known as the Wagon.

The 2013 E-150 van comes in four trim levels: Commercial Cargo Van, Commercial Cargo Van Extended, XL Wagon and XLT Wagon. The two commercial cargo van trims are utilitarian vans that are designed to haul a pair of workers up front and a plenty of cargo in the rear. The XL Wagon adds in a set of seats in the rear, but not much more than that over top of the Cargo Vans. The XLT trim level, on the other hand, adds in cloth-trimmed seats, premium audio system and other trimmings that make it more family friendly. On top of the XLT’s already comfortable inside, it is also available with the XLT Premium package, which adds in running boards, keyless entry, tinted windows, 16-by-7-inch aluminum wheels, SiriusXM radio, Ford Sync, quad captain’s and a power driver’s seat.

All 2013 Ford E-150s come standard with a 225-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine and have an available 255-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 as an option. They also come standard with a four-speed automatic transmission with an auxiliary cooler to keep the temp down inside the transmission when hauling heavy loads. Speaking of heavy loads, the E-150 can haul plenty of it, as, depending on the driveline setup, it can tow between 5,600 pounds and 7,500 pounds.

The full-size van market has really shrunken to a nearly non-existent state, but there is still a little competition out there for Ford’s E-150. First up is the GMC Savanna 1500 Van, which comes standard in a cargo format with a 4.3-liter V-6 engine that cranks out 195 horsepower, gets 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway, and can tow up to 6,700 pounds as standard. Next up is the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Van, which also comes standard as a cargo van setup, and features a V-6 diesel engine with 188 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, which allows it to tow up to 7,500 pounds. The final competitor is the Chevrolet Express van, which comes standard as a cargo van with a 195-horsepower, 4.3-liter V-6 engine and can tow up to 6,700 pounds in its standard format.

As you can see, the competition is very limited, as fuel prices have all but eliminated families buying these types of vans. Fortunately, there is still a little competition to choose from.
