2001 Ford Excursion Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
We bought the 2001 Excursion with the 7.3L PSD Diesel engine in Sept. 2000 and over the years have congratulated ourselves often for this lucky purchase. The Excursion is comfortable and fun to drive, even with the occasional boat in tow. The average fuel consumption over the last 20,000 miles amounts to an excellent 19.8 mpg (the electronic counter cheats with 22.6 mpg!). Besides regular maintenance, we had $0 (zero) expenses on repairs in more than 4 years! Our other car is a Suburban, not a bad car at all, very good seats, but too many expensive repairs. We will keep our Excursion a long time.
