Excursion-a fun trip and room to stretch
By FOZ on
2001 Ford Excursion XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Although this was a "Big Boat", it was still fun to drive. The power and economy of the 7.3L/TD was just awsome. We felt comfortible, safe, and secure in our "boat", even our Great Dane agreed. On several trips, the unit always performed to expectations and more. There was always enough room for everyone and everything. Even pulling a trailer was a joy. We hardly knew the trailer was there. We would gladly replace our present vehicle with a newer one (2005 being the last of the line), but for the right price. Right now they are still over priced on resale and under priced on trade values.
We liked the size, the lift gate/doors,four bucket seats, rear air/heat and controls, ride height (visability), economy(diesel), and of course the 4WD
The seat heater switches be relocated to the dash for better monititoring and have Hi/Lo function. Also courtesy access lights in doors when open.
