The 2007 Ford E-250 offers buyers a lot of variety. It comes in three trim levels: XL, XLT, and Lariat. It also has three body/interior styles: regular cab, super cab, and crew cab. The regular cab only comes in XL and XLT trim levels. It also has three engines to choose from. The 6.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine offers the most towing power, but it doesn't quite match the potential of its competitors. Still, for anyone doing serious work with the E-350, it's the engine to choose. The E-250 comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but a five-speed automatic is optional. For all of its good qualities, it fails in other regards. It has a dated interior, a huge turning radius, and noisy drivetrains. Still, it's a reliable, versatile work truck that sells at a competitive price.
Body Style: Regular Cab Truck, Super Cab, Crew Cab
Engines: 5.4-liter V-8, 6.0-liter V-8, 6.8-liter V-10
Transmission: Six-speed manual, five-speed automatic
Models: Ford E-250 XL, Ford E-250 XLT, Ford E-250 Lariat
The 2007 Ford E-250's drivetrains receive some updates. Ford has dropped the 5.4-liter engine with manual transmission because it could not meet emission standards in several states. SuperCabs now have an optional Lariat Highline Package that adds black leather seating and chrome details. Crew Cabs have an optional Lariat Outlaw Package that offers a new color scheme for the interior and exterior. Ford has extended the powertrain warranty to five years or 60,000 miles.
The 2007 Ford E-250 has a commanding presence on the road, mostly thanks to its large size. It also has a hulking front end. Regular Cab and Super Cab models receive plenty of bed space, but buyers will lose some of that space with the Crew Cab models.
The 2007 Ford E-250 has a lot of good points, but the interior isn't necessarily one of them. The design looks very dated. Considering its yearly changes, it seems that Ford could have spent some time updating the interior to match contemporary aesthetics. It does, however, offer a lot of choices when it comes to the interior. The XL models don't come with many niceties. It only comes standard with an AM/FM radio, and an air-conditioner is not included. The XLT adds the A/C, a CD player, cruise control, full power accessories, and replaces vinyl upholstery with cloth. Opt for the Lariat, and things start to get much fancier. This trim line comes with dual-zone automatic climate control and leather upholstery. Buyers can also choose to add various options and packages to each trim level. Some popular options include the FX4 Off-Road Package, the Harley-Davidson Package, and the King Ranch Package.
Performance & Handling
The base 2007 Ford E-250 comes with a 5.4-liter V-8 that offers 300 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. A 6.8-liter, V-10 engine offers considerably more power with its 362 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. Those interested in a truck that can haul heavy items, though, should opt for the 6.0-liter, Power Stroke diesel V-8. It only kicks out 325 hp, but you also get 570 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, it can tow 12,500 pounds. Most drivers will choose the six-speed manual transmission, which makes it easier to decide what gear is needed for various jobs. A five-speed automatic, however, is optional. It handles very well for a truck. While it feels a bit bulky, it has a huge turning radius, but it responds well to commands on the road. It also has an impressively quiet, smooth ride that one rarely finds in the cabin of a truck. Unfortunately, that smooth ride is somewhat marred by noisy drivetrains.
The 2007 Ford F-250 comes standard with four-wheel anti-lock brakes. The XLT and Lariat crew cabs have optional rear parking sensors and power-adjustable pedals. Side airbags are not available for the 2007 F-250.
