2010 Ford E-150 Club Wagon
The 2010 E-150 Club Wagon is equipped with a 4.6-liter E85 capable angine with AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability Control (RSC) technologies.
"Conventional stability-control systems are designed to help a driver maintain control and avoid fishtailing or spinning out. While conventional systems help reduce the potential for rollover, these do not directly measure a vehicle's roll motion or the side-to-side tilting that can occur during an accident-avoidance maneuver," Ford Philippines said. "Ford's Roll Stability Control rises to the next level by responding to the potential of a rollover, besides helping a driver avoid fishtailing or spinning out."
Other safety features in the new Ford E-150 Club Wagon include the seat-integrated three-point safety belts for rear-center passengers, as well as airbags for the driver and front passenger and side-door intrusion beams for passenger protection.
The 2010 Ford E-150 also boasts of Ford's SYNC technology for hands-free entertainment and communication through media players or mobile phones with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
Ford offers new exterior colors for the 2010 E-150 Club Wagon: Dark Blue Pearl, Black Clear Coat, Royal Red and Oxford White.
