Why Buy the 2018 Ford E-Series Cutaway?
Although pickup trucks and vans can be flexible and capable, their body styles do restrict what can be done with them. The E-Series are trucks with cutaway cabs and stripped chassis, so they operate as a platform to build upon as you want and need.
The 2018 Ford E-Series Cutaway is the right choice because, in addition to the flexibility to decide on what kind of back to put on your E-Series, the platform is rugged, tough, durable, and reliable--inspired by the legendary F-Series. In a segment of the market focused on needs like capability, durability, and adaptability, the E-Series Cutaway couldn't really get better than that.
How Can the E-Series Cutaway Be Customized?
An E-Series can be customized any way you want, or in any way you need we should probably say. Unlike even the most powerful and capable F-Series Super Duty pickups, these vehicles are really first and foremost a commercial vehicle platform.
Buyers can choose to put closed boxes on the back that can be anything from a mobile food retail space to a workshop, a horse trailer, or anything else for that matter. But that's just the start--other customizations can include dump truck-like beds, flatbeds or even fire truck conversions.
How Much Can the E-Series Cutaway Tow and Haul?
What you will legally be able to tow and haul with an E-Series will depend to some extent on what you do with the back. A flat bed or a truck bed won't add too much weight and size, but a large box with heavy shelving will affect its overall weight.
But as far as the basic vehicle is concerned, chassis cab versions have a maximum payload of 6,020 pounds, and a maximum trailer rating of 7,500 pounds. As for a stripped chassis E-Series, the maximum payload is 9,690 pounds and the maximum trailer rating is 10,000 pounds.
Which E-Series Cutaway Model is Best?
The E-Series Cutaway model that's best is the one that's best for you, which means you have to know exactly what you want to build your E-Series into and what you need it to be capable of. Whether you want a stripped chassis or a chassis cab depends on the back you want to put on your truck, and whether to go for an E-350 or E450 depends on how much you need to haul and/or tow.
The good news is the rest of the choice is equally simple and a la carte, as there are no trim levels to worry about here. Every E-Series comes in its basic form, and you get to choose how well you want it to be equipped in the cab and what other items you want to upgrade. Ford does offer a cadre of available features that include the likes of 16-inch aluminum wheels, heavy-duty batteries, an engine block heater, Ford Telematics, a rearview camera and plenty more.
