The US has seen its share of reliable vans and towing cars for the past decades. With the introduction of the 2013 Ford E Series Wagon, the tradition continues but with several twists. This is a van that flaunts both powers to haul and to accommodate passengers for those long trips. Ford certainly has given this series a lot of thought as there are several models that are now available for the public to choose. These would include the E-150 XL, E-150 XLT, E-350 XL, E-150 XLT Premium, E-350 XL Extended, E-350 XLT, and the best seller E-350 XLT Extended.
Buyers have the several options when it comes to this type of van series. Its versatility is what attracts in a lot of homeowners who have big families and a manual labor job. The engine could come in varieties of Triton 8 4.6L, 5.4L, and the 6.4L. Only the 6.4L option comes with this Torque Shift (“TorqShift”) technology which is logical since it is present on models that are intended for heavy-duty jobs. The fuel flexibility capability is there too.
In terms of passenger capacity, we can see no less from this series. The regular and heavy duty models can all accommodate 15 passengers. There are passenger seating options that could be availed. These could come in luxury packages that feature limited reclining captain’s seats, cup holders, storage bins, and even clipboards. These packages are intended to keep passengers truly comfortable on long trips.
When it comes to towing power and capability, the 2013 Ford E Series Wagon is quite exceptional too. It comes in two trailer towing packages that have 5,000 lb and 10,000 lb capacities. It is interesting to take note that the braking system of the trailer could be controlled by the van. Synched braking is a feature that would prove to be vital when there are extremely heavy loads and the van is full of passengers too.
Generally, the 2013 Ford E Series Wagon is recommended for those who travel a lot and takes a lot of stuff. This van will be reliable on both city and country roads as proven by test drives done by Ford. At a starting price of $29,455 that comes with standard packages, you are really in for a big treat!
