  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Multitude of engine choices, dual air bags, standard anti-lock brakes, and fairly decent driveability.

    This van has a hard time squeezing into most standard garages.

  • 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.

Another great vehicle

Vehicle: 1996 Ford E-350

We purchased a 12 passenger (1993) & loved it, selling it at 210K miles when it was still going strong. We replaced it with a 1996 & drove it to 181K miles (and still going) and bought a newer one (2006).




Energizer bunny of vans

Vehicle: 1996 Ford E-350

This van is our family bus, our pick up truck, our camper and more. It will go from hauling 15 people to hauling 8 people and 8 bicycles to a camper for a family of 5 with a queen size matress and 2 large coolers in the back, all with the flip of a few quick release seat locks. 230,000 miles and running strong.Super duty means super duty.




The best big van

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Ford E-350

We needed a BIG van for our growing brood - 9 children. When you're looking for 15-passenger van, the pickings are pretty slim. You can go with Dodge, Chevy or Ford. In my opinion, it's no contest - Ford simply makes the better van. We've owned this van for 6 years, and have no intentions of selling it any time soon. Keep in mind, almost any repair on a vehicle of this size will be expensive. The seats are big and comfy, even for adults. This van can haul a family of 11, including all their stuff, and a fully loaded trailer and never miss a beat. But don't expect much for gas mileage, at best ours gets 15 mpg on the highway.

12 passenger club wagon

Vehicle: 1996 Ford E-350

My dislikes with this vehicle is that Ford didnt think through the fact you would have a vehicle capable of carrying 12 passengers and put in 4 drink holders in it 3 of which are located up front for the 2 front passengers. The other problem I have is the seat belts for the 2 center passenger seat always fall through the slots in the seats and fall to the floor and they are a bear to get back up through the seat. Other than those 2 complaints...I love my van.
