Ford Econoline (E-Series)

Ford E-Series wheelchair van.

The Ford Econoline, or E-Series, is a full-size wheelchair van that offers one of the most spacious interiors among all wheelchair van models. The E-Series was one of the best-selling handicap vans in the United States between 1980 and 2014 before it was discontinued by Ford due to evolving consumer preferences. Nowadays, the Ford Econoline remains one of the most reliable full-sized vans for passenger and cargo use.

The E-Series utilizes a wheelchair lift instead of a ramp for navigating in and out of the vehicle. The E-Series is available in both side-entry and rear-entry conversion, and can be commonly found in our nationwide inventory.

Ford Transit & Transit Connect

Ford Transit Connect wheelchair van.

The Ford Transit became the successor of the Ford Econoline wheelchair van after it was discontinued in 2014. Aiming to improve the accessibility provided by the E-Series, the Ford Transit wheelchair van has quickly become one of the most popular commercial wheelchair vans on the market. The Transit offers improved fuel efficiency, suspension, and interior space compared to its predecessor, and is commonly found in commercial industries that require passenger transportation such as hotels and hospitality.

Since being introduced in 2015, the Ford Transit has also evolved into a new trim level called the Ford Transit Connect. The Transit Connect is more compact compared to the basic Transit model, making it more suitable for city-based applications when navigating narrow streets becomes crucial. You can often find both models available in our nationwide dealer network, making it easy to compare which one is right for your needs.
