The full-size mainstream van segment, which includes passenger, cargo, and cutaway/chassis cab models, shrank seven percent to 75,233 units in Q4 2023, meaning that Ford E-Series sales significantly outperformed the segment average.

The Ford Authority Take

Ford E-Series sales have remained positive all year, posting the biggest gain among entries during Q4 2023. The E-Series alone nearly beat the GM duo in terms of deliveries, combining with the Transit for a dominating  55 percent segment share, even up five percentage points over last quarter.

All this is evidence The Blue Oval continues to move past supply chain issues that have been plaguing the automotive industry at large for the better part of the last few years, able to build enough units of the van to meet customer demand.

Looking ahead, Ford E-Series sales should continue its upward sales trajectory, aided in part to minor changes for the 2024 model year. This includes the deletion of the Economy tune in favor of the naturally-aspirated Ford 7.3L V8 Godzilla engine. Moving forward, the E-Series will offer just one drivetrain 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.

A year ago, Ford Authority spotted an E-Series prototype of a potential refreshed model undergoing testing, showing off a revised front grille with a vertical element in the middle, along with a refreshed front bumper cover. As of this writing, a potential refresh would likely be introduced for the 2025 model year.

Furthermore, Ford E-Series production will continue into 2028.
