The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Dodge Sprinter is very different from traditional full-size vans, but its fuel-efficient engine and space-efficient interior make it the smart choice. The 2008 Ford Econoline is built for a purpose: carrying heavy stuff and lots of people. Most readers will be better served with a minivan or a big crossover like the coming 2009 Ford Flex.
