2022 Ford E-450SD Review
Before you take one out around Flushing, Flint, and Swartz Creek, MI, read through this 2022 Ford E-450SD review from the LaFontaine Ford of Flushing team. We’ll show you a few of the features you have to look forward to in this exceptional work vehicle.
Powerful Engine: 7.3L V8
One of the first things to note about the E-450 is that it comes with a 7.3L V8 engine. The standard Premium-rated model offers up to 350 horsepower and 468-lb-ft of torque for the job ahead.
While that strength is nothing to sneeze at, you may not need all of that horsepower to tackle your daily jobs. Finding an engine that matches your needs is essential, which is why the E-450 is also available with an Economy-rated engine. Offering up to 300 horsepower and 425 lb-ft of torque, you’re in for a treat with this powertrain.
Both engines come with a Ford TorqShift® automatic transmission and a auxiliary transmission oil cooler. While the transmission works hard to help you to tow and haul all your gear, the oil cooler will prevent it from overheating to keep you running smoothly.
A cutaway vehicle is versatile and ideal for any kind of job that looms on the horizon. Whether making deliveries, hauling your gear, or transporting people, the E-450 is ready to work.
Across its many available configurations, the E-450 can handle serious towing and hauling jobs thanks to its high GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating).
At its lowest, the E-450 has a GVWR of 14,000 pounds and can handle payloads of up to 8,480 pounds. The middle option ups the GVWR to a whooping 14,200 pounds, with a payload capacity of 8,680 pounds. However, when you need Herculean strength, you need an E-450 model with 14,500 pounds of GVWR that can carry 8,980 pounds of payload.
Confidence Behind the Wheel
The E-450 is available in two wheelbase measurements—158 inches and 176 inches. While these dimensions will have a slight bearing on the stability of the truck, you’ll find that the 2022 E-450 also includes a few features to keep you feeling confident.
The E-450 has standard Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control working to keep you firmly planted on the road. You’ll feel completely in control with these features. However, the E-450 still has more to offer.
The standard Hill Start Assist will keep your vehicle from rolling backwards when you’re driving up an incline and switching from the brake pedal to the gas.
The driver-assist package offers a wide variety of available features you can utilize on each drive, such as:
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Departure Warning
That’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the technology of this vehicle too. To find out what else is included, visit our showroom.
