True to its nature and purpose, the 2008 Ford Econoline offers features geared more toward the commercial user than the family driver.

While the options list for the Econoline does include "amenities like leather trim, CD changer, [and a] power driver seat," the folks at Edmunds.com, like all others whose comments TheCarConnection has read, emphasize that the cargo capacity and hauling capabilities are what the E-series is all about.

Ranging from 237 cubic feet (enough for 7 passengers) to 275 cubic feet (15 passengers), the E-series vehicles are designed to allow you to carry a lot. Kelley Blue Book lauds options such as the Masterack tool storage system and the QuietFlex rack and bin system, which "allow owners to custom-tailor their vans to better suit specific work-related requirements."

Enhanced security features like side and rear doors that unlock only with a key rather than the keyfob have been designed with the Ford Econoline's commercial user in mind. The optional Reverse Sensing System, however, which warns about objects behind the vehicle while backing up, should appeal to families with children playing (or leaving toys) in the driveway as well as to contractors wishing to, as NewCars.com puts it, "prevent potential parking lot mishaps."


Conclusion

For those looking to outfit a van with efficient ways to carry a lot of stuff or moderately comfortable ways to carry a lot of people, the 2008 Ford Econoline is worth considering--just don't expect heated seats or cooling cupholders.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
