2024 Ford E-Series Order And Production Dates Revealed

The Ford E-Series, formerly known as the Econoline, has been going strong for almost six decades. Though it skipped the 2020 model year, the nameplate has continued refine its formula for commercial and recreational lifting alike, and it should come as no surprise that the upcoming 2024 E-Series will be relatively unchanged compared to the current model. And now, Ford Authority has learned key dates for the 2024 E-Series.

Sources familiar with the matter tell us that order banks for the 2024 model year are set to open on October 17th, 2022 and that production is currently set to begin at the Ford Ohio Assembly plant on January 3rd, 2023. These dates, however, are subject to change as The Blue Oval continues to face constraints and delays within its supply chain. It is also worth noting that production of the current, 2023 model year will end on December 23rd, 2022.

As a reminder, FoMoCo elected to skip the E-Series 2020 model year, without skipping production time, in an effort to boost the residual values of existing vehicles. The long-running Ford van cutaway received a few significant updates for the 2021 model year, headlined by the addition of the Ford 7.3L Godzilla V8 engine.

In fact, the Godzilla engine offers two different engine tunes in the E-Series – the standard tune that delivers optimal power and torque, or an optional tune focused on optimizing fuel economy at the expense of power and torque.

The Ford E-Series continues to be a strong seller for Ford, maintaining a strong position within its competitive set. During the first half of 2022, the nameplate placed fourth in it segment – impressive results despite the fact that the E-Series is available exclusively as a cutaway, while all other segment contenders offer multiple body styles including passenger, cargo, and cutaway options.

    So, are they skipping the ’23 model year, or is this a misprint?

    1. Ag

      It’s all laid out in the second paragraph. 23 models end in December. They do not follow the consumer models, probably since these all have to go to Upfitters to finish the chassis (they are sold as cut-aways) before getting on the road.

      The E-series is a year ahead. The 2023 models have been in production since Q3 of 2021, and are being built until December 2022. The Medium Duty trucks are the same. Strange, but it works.

    Waiting for Thor RV’s to order their new 2024 Class C, on the new Ford E-Series…
