Performance & Handling
The 1995 Ford E-150Econolineallowsit to haul or tow a good payload without suffering from lag. The three-speed automatic that is available with the 4.9-liter engine is rather outdated and useless with the exception of city driving. On the highway, it’s not good, and although the acceleration capabilities are not all that great, it's capable highway cruisers. Due to the sheer overall size and it sitting fairly high off the ground, it can be difficult to handle. It's responsive to steering changes, but the suspension causes it to be stiff around turns, and it requires the driver to be cautious.
