For customers with big demands, only a big vehicle can suffice. This is especially true when there is a great need to move people and haul big cargo loads at the same time or do one after the other. This is the situation where heavy-duty pickup trucks just would not be enough for the job due to few seating capacity. For all these, Ford has got you covered with the 2013 Ford E-Series. There may be no major changes for the 2013 version but this does not mean that it is practically the same with the older one. It still boasts of the same 15-passenger capacity and the mighty V10 engine but the feature that will surely complete your day and make your everyday work easier is the work solution package that is undoubtedly the best in the whole automotive market today.
It is not every day that we come across a heavy-duty vehicle that can do all the work of hauling and towing yet offers high technology unlike any other. Ford introduced this work technology solution a few years ago and the consumers greatly loved it. Today, Ford offers it once again in the 2013 Ford E-Series with even better capabilities.
For one, the SYNC communication system lets drivers use voice control through a Bluetooth-enabled phone, 911 assist, Vehicle Health Reports, and even turn-by-turn directions. Another wonderful option is the very helpful rear-view camera. It is no secret that big vans are not exactly easy to park especially in tight parking lots. The camera can be displayed in the rear view mirror or on the voice-activated navigation screen, which is another great option for the 2013 Ford E-Series.
For workaholics who spend a great deal of time in their work van, you should rejoice as this vehicle also offers a Sirius satellite radio subscription and Sirius Travel Link which opens up a whole new world as you are updated with sports scores, weather, gas prices, and even movie times for those times you are in hurry to catch up a long-awaited date with your special someone.
Among all these wonderful high technology features now being offered in the 2013 Ford E-Series, it remains to be the workhorse that it has always been famous for.
