  • 2012 Ford E350 15-Passenger Van Combines Power & Comfort

    The 2012 Ford E350 Super Duty Extended is a full-size wagon that holds up to 15 passengers.  The most significant changes to this model are that there are new alloy wheels (on the XLT trim) and there is a new audio input jack (which is now the standard on all models).

    The E350 is part of a line of “Super Duty” pickups that offer great engines.  The 5.4-liter V8 gasoline engine is rated at 255 hp, along with 350 lb-ft of torque. There is also the optional 6.8-liter V10 with a five-speed automatic transmission.  This offers an impressive 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, capable of towing up to 5 tons (10,000 lb).

    Exterior

    With the 2012 Ford E350, you have the option of two trim levels: XL or XLT.  The XL has 16-inch steel wheels, while the XLT has alloy wheels.  This model is very distinctive on the road, as its front end and grille are wide and solid with a rectangular shape and square headlights.

    The hood is on the shorter side, with distinctive styling.  The windshield rises noticeably from the body of the vehicle.  There is also distinctive styling on the doors of E350, as well as on the sides and fenders.  As you would expect, the door configurations are wide so that there is easy access to and from the vehicle.

    Interior

    In addition to the powerful body, this model also provides surprising comfort for a truck, as the cab is functional, attractive, and comfortable for riding.  There are heated-and-cooled leather seats with driver memory, a moonroof, and two rearview cameras.  There is also SYNC voice-activated communications and entertainment, as well as remote start.  It’s also pretty easy for the driver to operate, as the large dash controls are in easy reach.

    You can find a 12V power outlet(s) in both the front and the rear, along with an ashtray in the front.  In addition, there is a cigar lighter in the front too.  There is an audio system equipped with an MP3 player, AM and FM radio, and six speakers.  For those who want to add more options, you can add Bluetooth capabilities, a DVD player, and a navigation system.

    Seating

    Fifth row seats provides a bench with seating for four, while the fourth row seats has a bench seating for three.  The driver and passenger seats are arranged in a bucket formation.  There are also two front head restraints, as well as a folding front seat center armrest.

    Safety

    Along with its massive size and body, this model comes with four-wheel anti-lock brakes and stability control.  Traction control is standard on all models.  Both front seats come equipped with front airbags.

    Conclusion

    The 2012 Ford E350 is a truck with some impressive towing power and size, backed by a powerful V8 engine (or an optional V10 engine).  Yet, it provides surprising comfort for such a powerful truck, with enough room to hold 15 passengers.  There are plenty of notable options that can be included to make the ride even more enjoyable, including Bluetooth capability, DVD player, and a navigation system.
