Edmunds' Expert Review

vehicle overview

Tough and roomy, rugged and reliable, Ford's full-size vans have a favorable, well-earned reputation that reaches way back to the '60s. Ford boasts that the Econoline is a big seller to aftermarket conversion companies -- the folks who turn no-frills vans into alluring recreational vehicles.

All Econoline vans ride on a 138-inch wheelbase. All of Ford's full-size vans have four-wheel antilock brakes and dual airbags. These features, their large size, and better than average crash test scores, make the Ford vans some of the safest vehicles on the road.

The virtues of sitting tall with a panoramic view of the road ahead can outweigh many a minor inconvenience -- such as the difficulty of squeezing these biggies into urban parking spots and small garages. Handling is light, seats are acceptably comfortable and these vans don't ride badly at all, considering the old-fashioned suspension configurations they employ.

As with most full-size vans the Econoline family offers a wide choice of power plants. Exclusive to Ford, however, is the industry's first SOHC engines found in a van. The three SOHC engines include a 4.6-liter V8 producing 215 horsepower, a 5.4-liter V8 producing 235 horsepower, and 6.8-liter V-10 that produces 265 horsepower and a massive 411 lb-ft of torque.

Bad Tranny's
Shari, 8/5/2005
This van has to have a new tranny every summer! I have 82,000 miles on it and have had 4 tranny's put in. They have a transmission fluid over heating problem. It gets too hot and the cooler is too small; gets plugged and fries the tranny. Got tired of dealer so passed on having them stick in another bad tranny. Put in our own cooler, switched to synthetic fluid. So far so good. Van has serious tranny problems and service has really stunk. This is the first year we have so far so good got through the summer. Never again! What a nightmare this van has been. Run like the wind...

A work horse
Money's worth, 3/16/2009
I ordered this beast from the dealership. I wanted it to work like an ox and drive like a kitten. That's what I got. This is one of the best trucks-I've ever owned. It will pull with a full trailer and a full load in the box. The tilt, cruise,p/w,pdl. and upgraded seats are real comfortable on long runs. I can't say enough good things about this truck. The key is good and faithful maintenance.This truck will swallow a load and keep on going. It looks and feels like a truck.
