2001 Ford Excursion XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I love my Excursion Diesel! I use it extensively in my business, and also have four children, so nothing else compares. Always used to drive Suburbans, but had problems with lights, electric windows, etc. - little annoying problems, never a problem with my Excursion, and have put over 70K miles on it so far. The only two things that are problems, especially if you pull a lot of trailers, is the turning radius, which I believe has improved in the '05 model and the horsepower. It does not keep up at all with my '03 F350, but I will gladly give up the comfort of those two items, for the inside comfort and room! Would strongly recommend the diesel versus the gas model for gas purposes.
Lots of room!
Turning radius, they actually improved this in the '05 models!
