About Ford E-250
Ford E-250 is a full-size van manufactured and marketed by Ford Motor Company since 1960s. The first Ford E-250 was introduced to replace the Ford F-Series' panel van and a member of the third longest-produced nameplate Ford E-Series by this company around the world. As it is still in production today, so it has gone through four generations. E-250 has always been the best-selling American full-size van since 1980.
The third generation Ford E-250 (Econoline 250; 1975-1991) was the first American full-size van that adapted body-on-frame construction. It also featured a cutaway van chassis used in ambulances and various types of trucks and buses. Available trim levels included XL, XLT and so on. Powers mainly came from inline 6-cylinder engines and V8 engines mated to 3-speed and 4-speed manual and automatic transmissions. Then the fourth generation Ford E-250 (1992-present) underwent a major design and returned in both cargo and passenger configurations from only fleet orders. Its engine options add a 6.8 L SOHC Triton V10 except for inline 6-cylinder and V8 engines carried over from previous generation. In addition, transmissions become new 4-speed and 5-speed automatic transmissions.
