Ford's full-size vans greet 1998 relatively unchanged. The XL trim level previously available is replaced by a gaggle of interior and exterior appearance packages, yet is still applicable to Club Wagon models. Optional audio units receive minor styling changes while instrument panel lighting goes from blue-green to green. Models equipped with power door locks get a rear door lock switch and the previously standard engine block heater for diesel models becomes optional. Colorwise, Colonial White is dropped, Denim Blue replaces Crystal Blue and Deep Forest Green, Carribean Green and Light Blue Metallic are introduced.
