The 1st generation Ford Aerostar was available since 1986 in a single body length as a cargo van and a 7-passenger van (two trim levels were available: base-trim XL and deluxe-trim XLT). The standard engine was the 2.3L Lima SOHC inline-4 100 hp (75 kW) while the 2.8L Cologne 115 hp (86 kW) was an option. In 1987 the 2.8L Cologne was replaced with the 3.0L Vulcan. In 1990 the 4.0L Cologne became an option for all non-XL models.
