by Heyteach on Oct 21, 2004 Vehicle: 2004 Ford Econoline Wagon E-150 Chateau 3dr Van (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
The E150 Chateau is wonderful for
someone who is diabled. It can carry
two scooters or two wheelchairs
(electric), and still have room for
passengers. It also has plenty of room
for shopping even with the electric
scooters, wheelchairs and passengers.
It will come in handy when we are able
to travel to visit releatives as we can
take all we require with us.
Ford's Econoline (E-Series) van gets few changes for 2004. A Chateau model is added to the lineup, whereas it was previously only an option package. Aluminum 16-inch wheels are available on all Econolines; in fact, even the standard-issue steel wheels are 16s this year. The 4.2-liter V6 has been dropped on E-150 models, while E-350 models now offer Ford's excellent new 6.0-liter turbodiesel V8 in place of the 7.3-liter diesel. Several features from last year's Econoline have been deleted -- among these, underseat storage, the passenger-side vanity mirror, seat-mounted grab handles and overhead lighting in the second row.
