2024 Ford E-Series Facelift

a refreshed version of the Ford E-Series was in development, which is big news given the fact that the current model has soldiered on for a number of years now with few major updates, save for the addition of a chassis cab variant a few years ago. Now, Ford Authority has spotted a refreshed Ford E-Series model driving around for the very first time, giving us a preview of what to expect.
Though it’s covered in camouflage, we can discern a few notable details from these photos. For starters, the front grille is slightly different than the current model, as it features a vertical element in the middle. The front bumper also appears to have received some styling changes, too, Moving down the side, the first thing one might notice is the strange apparatus that’s attached to the front and rear wheels. Those are actually used to measure how the vehicle behaves while it’s in motion. Another interesting detail present here is a front tire that’s negatively cambered, though it’s unclear why that is the case.

Otherwise, this refreshed Ford E-Series prototype looks quite similar to the current model, which isn’t a huge surprise. However, as Ford Authority previously reported, bigger changes could be taking place inside the cabin and under the hood. Currently, the E-Series lineup offers buyers quite a few modern features, but lacks any type of Sync system – which is prevalent across the rest of the Blue Oval lineup – and isn’t yet available with the brand new 6.8L gas V8 engine that debuted in the 2023 Ford Super Duty, nor Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s possible that the refreshed E-Series might add both the new gas V8 and a more modern infotainment system, even though it’s more of a workhorse model in The Blue Ovals’ commercial vehicle lineup. For now, however, the E-Series remains a strong seller for The Blue Oval, even though it experienced a seven percent decline in Q4 2022. Ford sold a total of 9,927 units last quarter, giving the E-Series a 12 percent market share and placing it behind the full-size van segment-leading Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster, and Chevrolet Express, as well as ahead of the GMC Savana and Nissan NV.
