New vehicle for work
My work swapped out my 2007 3500 express van to a ........ 2010 FORD E350 and I hate it!
It has no power it is generally lethargic and handles like all the twin I beam vehicles.
My chevy van still had plenty of life left in it but our company was recently bought out .
Anything over 150,000 miles is retired and sold at auction . They Are "saving money' on the Fords!!!!
My Chevy was still getting 14-15 mpg. and the Ford is only getting 12 mpg.
It wont take long to make up the " SAVING MONEY" at the rate this miserable beast burns fuel!
my chevy only needed some front end refreshing and it would be good to go.
IT STILL BEATS WALKING!

Well im both a ford and chevy fan and i put it into perspective by looking at the fact that the E series hasnt really changed since the early 70s, other than a little sheet metal. NO offense to chevy but to keep up with ford they have had to do updates to their vans. And im guessing your van only had the grossly underpowered 4.6L in it.
but as you said it beats walking! and luckly its not your money! HAHAMike

No not the 4.6 but the super anemic 5.4 . I was just used to the 6.0 in the Chevy.

I use to drive 100,000 miles or more in my old work vans and at first we had Fords. Ford has legroom vs Chevy. We went to Chevy's and my knees would be killing me because of the lack of leg room. Now all other things equal I liked the feel of driving the Chevy better but the seating just sucked.
