I purchased my Excursion while trading
in my F-150 to tow my 21' boat and 33'
camping trailer and also needed the
extra room (have 4 children).
I could not be more pleased with the
Excursion with it's towing capacity and
room. My ford has the 6.8 Liter V10 and
has tons of torque.
The seating arangement is great. I had
to pick up some items so I removed the
3rd row seat and had lots of room while
still having the 2nd row available. The
3rd row seat could not be more easily
removed... a quick pull on the latch
and it rolls right out the back on it's
built in rollers. The 2nd row seats
then simply fold down if more room is
Torque, Torque, Torque. Pulling my 21'
boat (about 5000 pounds)through fairly
hilly terrain and the Excursion never
came out of overdrive.
The seating is also excellent. Interior
lets you forget you are in a large
(F250 frame) SUV with 4WD.
For the "Limited" version I would have
thought it would have came with
more "Goodies". The options are fairly
sparse for this level of vehicle. Auto
Climate Control and headlights at least.
