Free Car Owners Manuals - Ford E 250 General Information

Free Car Owners Manuals - Ford E 250 logoAvailable in either regular (216.7 inches) or extended length (236.4 inches) the Ford E-250 comes in two trims; recreational or commercial. Each trim is outfitted with a standard 4.6-liter Triton V-8 engine that is able to create 225-horsepower. If that’s not enough juice, go for the 5.4-liter Triton V-8 which can also create 255-horsepower. Either engine is controlled through a four-speed automatic transmission (complete with overdrive). All models have rear-wheel drive. The massive gas tank holds 35 gallons of unleaded fuel, as well as gets 15 MPG in the city and 19 MPG on the highway. In the 2009 model, both engines are flex fuel capable and have multi-point injection fuel systems. Whatever trim you choose, feel confident in the fact that this formidable van can also haul anywhere from 5,900 to 6,500 pounds depending on the engine. Often in comparison to the Chevrolet Express 2500 or the GMC Savanna 2500, the E-250 is comparable in power, pricing and room, yet has far more options and style.

The 2009 Ford E-250 has almost successfully stormed its way through the toughest tests. It is large and it is powerful. Even for a cargo van, the 2009 Ford E-250 is somewhat rugged and achieves the desired effect. It is created as a roomy rear wheel drivetrain. Here is a sneak peek at what others say: declares that “Tough, roomy, rugged and reliable, Ford’s Econoline has a favorable, well-earned reputation.” With its tough looks and good scores in lots of other aspects, the Ford E-250 has earned favor with lots of a car critic.

In terms of performance, the 2009 cargo van from Ford is somewhat a high flier, with Triton V8 standard and optional engines that never fail to coast comfortably considering its size. The standard engine is a 4.6L V8 that performs at 225 hp while the 255 hp 5.4L engine is available as an option for the users. Both the V8 engines come with a standard four speed automatic transmission. They are created as flex fuel engines, which improves performance to a really good extent. The tilt steering wheel is standard in the Ford E-250 but a nice new instrument panel appears in the 2009 model, with a glove box incorporated. This makes the vehicle all the more convenient for controlling the sheer bulk.

Electronic Traction control is somewhat good in the 2009 E-250. Stability control is somewhat okay overall, considering which you haul heavy cargo in this van.

Braking is good, with the standard anti-lock disk brakes to control the four wheels. But the E-250 has a lengthy way to go in terms of rollover safety, with the 2009 model managing a dismal “poor” according to NHTSA rollover tests. This apart, other standard features include variable intermittent wipers, air conditioning and underbody full size spare among others.

You can’t expect a delicate darling in terms of exteriors, because this is an authentic cargo van with rugged masculine looks that leave you breathless. The regular version is huge, but there's an extended length option as well. And they offer a recreational trim in additional to the commercial version. For making modifications without hassle, the recreational trim is an excellent candidate.

Go for the 2009 Ford E-250 cargo van if you want a rugged machine with large interiors and excellent cargo room for your needs. But look for enhancements where possible. At about $26,095, pricing is hardly a bother.
