The Ford Authority Take

Ford E-Series sales posted a modest uptick during the second quarter of 2023 as industrywide supply chain issues continue to ease across the board. Continued improved supply at the dealer level has put sales in the green once again last quarter, as FoMoCo is no longer forced to navigate constraints.

Refreshed Ford E-Series prototype

Looking ahead, the 2024 Ford E-Series promises minor changes, such as dropping its Economy tune for the naturally-aspirated Ford 7.3L V8 Godzilla engine. Moving forward, the E-Series will offer just one calibration, with an output of 325 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, as its flex fuel capability option has also been eliminated from the lineup. Ford Authority has already spotted a prototype a potential refreshed model out and about, showing off a revised front grille with a vertical element in the middle, along with a refreshed front bumper cover.

    One of the few products that FORD builds right and/or that isn’t plagued by recalls. A the old says goes, the best remains unchanged at least the same basic platform in place.

    I still prefer the E series vans over the E-transit. I had a short wheelbase window van and loved it. Didn’t need the extra length and it fit in the garage nicely.

      The state of Georgia still uses Econolines to take people to Brass Town bald in the mountains, the rangers will tell you its the only transmission that can handle the pulls to the top.

    I’m patiently waiting for an E series DRW cutaway van with the 6.7 diesel and 4 wheel drive. I know it’s wishful thinking but one can only dream. Until then I’m hobbling my 7.3 custom box van along. I would totally do a 4x conversion but ujoint only does front leaves. Ford if you’re listening please bring back the diesel for the working man’s Econonline! Your 6.7 would be a huge hit in so many segments of the van market.

  4. CrabbyMilton

    Never made sense to me why they never engineered the 6.7 diesel into that chassis.
    They had V8’s V10’s and straight 6’s in that thing but some say it just won’t fit? Come on.
