1997 e-350 with powerstroke diesel

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Ford E-350 XL Club Wagon 3dr Ext Van

We bought it to haul around the family and also for use in our business hauling people. It currently has 365K on original engine and tranny. Not sure how or why the Powerstroke got in there, but it has to be the best engine for this type of vehicle. It will cruise at 70 mph all day and night while hauling 3000 lbs of canoes. Everything in it was built for heavy use. Seats are all in decent shape with only moderate cracks in the vinyl. Extremely utilitarian, with rear ac/heat fan control being the only creature comfort. Probably a prison transport vehicle due to odd wear patters in ceiling. It gets nearly 20 MPG on highway. The thing was meant to do nothing but haul people, and it performs!




12 passenger club wagon e350

Vehicle: 1997 Ford E-350 XLT Club Wagon 3dr Van

This is one of the best vehicles we have owned. It is the most comfortable when driving on the highway. My wife likes it because of the visibility. The kids like it because it is roomy. I like it because we have put over 220,000 miles on it with mainly oil changes. It is just now needing some work. The engine design and suspension are old design and are built to last. One issue we have is the radio now comes on by itself, the volume/on/off switch seems to be worn out. It is starting to leak some oil and has developed a leak on the low pressure side in the radiator. We did have to get the transmission rebuilt after we had the fluid changed, Ford picked up part of the cost. Overall a good buy.




Great big van

Vehicle: 1997 Ford E-350 XLT Club Wagon 3dr Ext Van

We've only had this van a year (bought it used), but it has 150,000 miles and is still going strong--runs great, looks great, and we get 16-17 mpg on the highway (only 12-13 city). We couldn't be happier with it!




Great van

Vehicle: 1997 Ford E-350 XLT Club Wagon 3dr Van

Very reliable vehicle. An automobile that can do it all, [carry the family and friends, haul lumber (almost any size), pull the boat/trailer, drive the highways like it is part of them, can even cross dry lake beds (with very little modification)].




Electrical problems abound

Vehicle: 1997 Ford E-350 Econoline 3dr Cargo Van

From the day I purchased this vehicle, the idiot lights malfunctioned and once a year I have to replace the windshield due to defect in design. It has a lot of pep still at over 300,000 miles and it is still used daily. No major problems to date other than regular maintenance.

What's New for 1997

While its cousins, the F-150 and F-250, receive ground-up redesigns, Ford's full-size vans receive minor enhancements. The new 4.2L V6 replaces the 4.9L as standard, and optional power plants now include the new Triton 4.6L and 5.4L V8s. A new front bumper and grille refresh the outside while a revised dash and front console, redesigned seats, an extra power point and seatbelt pre-tensioners round out the inside changes. A 3.31 limited-slip rear axle is offered and the three-speed automatic transmission is deleted.
