The Right Tools Start with the Right Foundation

E-Series can offer some of the most advanced technology in the business since it already has one of the most capable chassis in the business. Some of the standard and available functionality built into E-Series includes:

  • Standard on all E-Series vans and wagons, Ford's AdvanceTrac with RSC features unique functionality and a level of performance that competitive stability control systems can't match. Unlike competitor systems, AdvanceTrac with RSC uses a second gyroscopic roll-rate sensor to determine the vehicle's body roll angle and roll rate. If the unique roll-rate sensor detects a significant roll angle, the system applies additional countermeasures - such as applying brakes to one or more wheels or reducing engine power - to enhance vehicle rollover resistance
  • Flex fuel-capable gasoline V-8 engines: All E-Series vehicles equipped with either the 4.6-liter or 5.4-liter V-8 engine are capable of running on E85 (85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline), pure gasoline or any blend in between
  • Compressed natural gas/liquefied petroleum gas: CNG and LPG fuel-capable engine available on 5.4-liter V-8 and 6.8-liter V-10
  • Safety equipment: Includes an optional dash-mounted front passenger airbag cutoff switch on vans and cutaways and an optional factory-installed integrated trailer brake controller that permits direct operation of a trailer's electronic brakes

Comfort and Convenience

The 2011 E-Series features a tough, functional interior that reflects its exterior design. Key features include:

  • Functional, user-friendly instrument panel and center console
  • Storage, cleverly integrated throughout:
    • Door trim panels feature integrated second-bin compartments; a contents-retention strap helps secure items in the driver's door
    • Instrument panel has a storage tray above the passenger airbag
    • Center console includes three large cup holders that can accommodate a wide variety of cup sizes, an integrated clipboard holder and space for a laptop
  • Four optional user-defined switches on the dashboard and an efficient wiring harness make it easy for upfitters to integrate aftermarket features such as auxiliary lighting
  • Optional audio input jack on the instrument panel connects E-Series to MP3 players and other portable audio devices
  • Large glove box provides still more storage and a second power point
  • Available message center in E-Series vans and wagons features engine hour meter and standard vehicle maintenance information as well as miles-to-empty and fuel economy numbers

E-Series vans are available in E-150, E-250 Super Duty and E-350 Super Duty regular and extended-length configurations. Wagons are available in E-150 and E-350 Super Duty regular-length and E-350 Super Duty extended-length configurations.

All E-Series vans are built at the Ford Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, Ohio.
