Ford E150 owners manuals
The Ford E series (also associated as the Ford Econoline and Ford Club Wagon) is a series of full-size vans built by the American carmaker Ford as 1960. Debuted in 1961 as the follower for the Ford F-series panel van, four generations of the model series have been constructed. Along with the cargo van and passenger van body models, the Ford E-series has been provided as a cutaway van chassis and removed chassis.
From 1980 until 2015 (when it was abandoned), the E-series van was the best-selling full-size van in the United States, with almost 80% cut of the segment. In 2015 the Ford E-series cargo/passenger vans were followed in North America by the Ford Transit; since then, just cutaway and stripped chassis body styles of the E-series are made.
The E-Series Van has three available powertrains. By default on the E-150 and E-250 is a 4.6-liter V8 that delivers 225 horsepower and 286 pound-feet of torque. Optional on the E-150/250 and by default on all E-350 variants is a 5.4-liter V8 engine that produces 255 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both V8 powertrains are matched with a four-speed automatic transmission. E-350 customers can update to a 6.8-liter V10 engine that produces 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque which is paired to a five-speed automatic transmission.
