What's New

A low-gas indicator, vinyl flooring, and a tilt wheel comprise new standard equipment for the 2002 Ford E-350. Speed control provides a new optional feature. If ordering cruise control, the indicator light glows in the instrument panel.


The 2002 Ford E-350 measures 231.9 inches overall in length while riding on a 138-inch wheelbase. Other measurements total 83.4 inches in height, 79.3 inches in width, and a seven-inch ground clearance. The E-150 only comes in regular-length, which measures 211.9 inches. The doors swing out, with a 60/40-split. An optional sliding cargo door remains available for no additional cost. Rear doors solely come in the swing-out type. Privacy glass comes with the Chateau Appearance Package, along with interior upgrades. All E-Series models wear 16-inch steel wheels. The cargo capacities prove excellent on all models, as the Ford engineers produce top-of-the-line commercial vans and wagons.


For commercial applications and tasks, the Cargo Van suits everything. The interior is easy-to-clean and offers plenty of room for hauling. Extended-length models offer 309.4 cubic feet, whereas the regular-size van holds 256.5 cubic feet. An organizer sits beyond the rear seat for extra storage. A Travelers Package fits on the 2002 Ford E-350 exclusively. This package adds leather-trimmed seating for seven, a two-tone paint scheme, two rear video screens, and running boards, in addition to the standard equipment.

Basic features include power steering, power windows, air-conditioning, cruise control, power locks, keyless entry, front bucket seats, an adjustable steering wheel, and cloth/vinyl seat trim. The sound system includes an AM/FM stereo with a cassette player. An outlet supplies power. In addition, the standard floor mats are made of easy-to-clean materials.

The passenger models carry eight passengers in two rows of three-occupant bench seats and two captain’s chairs in front. Ford offers optional seating in various configurations. Another set of bench seats increases capacity to 12, and two additional bench seats accommodate 15.

Performance & Handling

The 2002 Ford E-Series offers five engine choices. From small to heavy-duty, the available engines accommodate various towing and hauling requirements that full-size van shoppers require. The E-350 has a 4.2-liter V-6 that provides 191 horsepower. The V-8 choices come next with a 4.6-liter making 225 hp and a 5.4-liter generating 255 hp. The gasoline-powered, 6.8-liter V-10 produces 305 horses, and the heavier-duty 7.3-liter turbodiesel Power Stroke V-8 makes 215 hp. The trailer ratings range from 6600 pounds to 10,000 pounds, depending on the model.

Every 2002 Ford E-350 comes with an automatic four-speed transmission. The biggest Ford E-350 van tows five tons when properly equipped. Maneuvering seems easier than most vans with light steering. Some owners comment that the E-350 has more carlike qualities than truck-like traits.


Seat belt pretensioners for the front seats, anti-lock brakes, and front airbags all come standard on the 2002 Ford E-350.
