Review of the 2002 Ford Econoline Wagon

  • Why buy a minivan when for the same price you can have a full-size van? Oh right, parking and fuel economy, to name just two. Well, if you've got nothing but wide-open spaces and lots of cash to plug into the tank, give the Ford Econoline Wagon a try. And look closely at the XLT Traveler, which is to family road trips what Valium is to stress.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Massive people-hauling and cargo-toting ability, powerful engines, wide range of configurations, available Traveler package.

  • Cons

    Fuel economy, size.

  • What's New for 2002

    All Econolines get A-pillar grab handles, tilt steering, backlit cruise control switches, an illuminated rear auxiliary climate control switch, low-fuel and cruise-control-on indicators in the gauge cluster. Newly optional on the XL is an overhead console. XLT has standard dual illuminated sun visors and front floor mats. E-350 Super Duty models can now be equipped with the luxury Traveler package, while E-350 Super Duty Extended vans get an upgraded transmission. Optional on XLT is an in-dash six-CD changer, and models equipped with the Chateau package get a dual-media cassette/CD stereo, privacy glass and an overhead console.

Best car ever!!

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Econoline Wagon

I purchased the 2001 Econoline with the Traveler package and the 5.4L engine when I was a Boy Scout leader with two kids in college. I had blown the shocks on my previous minivan 3 times hauling boys and heavy scout gear. We wanted something equipped similar to a mini van but not a full conversion van. Found the van on a lot with the Traveler package. As others have mentioned it was much cheaper than the larger SUVs and holds more cargo. Nothing but brake pads and tires to replace for the first 10 years. Mileage could be better but try and move the same amount of gear and people with sedans and you will buy a lot more gas since you will need more cars.

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Econoline Wagon

My van is a very good van and especially good because of its size (which in fact, was the overall reason we were looking for a van) It's fuel economy, well, we weren't expecting a prius, so it could have been worse. The exterior is very acceptable for a 01 and the interior is very well thought out, with lots of cup holders and other thoughtful touches, although perhaps too well thought out; I find gum and candy wrappers all over the place from our kids. I commute many miles daily to chi, so I am looking for a new car but Big Red has served me very well. Although I have had only one problem with the engine sometimes it does not operate when its hot, but Keep making econolines, Ford! Thank you

Excellent all around vehicle. Very capable for trailering a 3500 boat & trailer. Flexible interior with removable rear bench seat for cargo hauling.

Long term test is in,104K on 5.4L Traveler package and only been to the shop twice. Had some anti-lock brake wires chaff off and give error codes plus had an idle air control go bad. Other than normal maintenance, that's it. Good solid vehicle. My wife would rather drive it in traffic than the Camry.

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Econoline Wagon

This is the first full size van we have owned. After 3 mini-vans, it has been a wonderful experience owning something that is so large and comfortable to drive. We have driven from NC to Texas twice and have made several shorter state-to-state trips. With front and rear air, airplane lighting, and bucket seats all around, the travel is comfortable for all.

Our 2001 E-150 with Traveler package is the most versatile vehicle I have ever owned. It is the ultimate trip vehicle with the VCP with its cargo room and towing capability. We have almost 50K miles and haven't had any mechanical issues. When purchased the vehicle was about $7 K less than a comparable SUV and about $4 K less than a comparable minivan. Other than off roading it is much more functional than a SUV. Mileage isn't even that bad (up to 18 mpg), comparable to many smaller SUV models.
