2001 Ford Excursion XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I have owned several SUV's, trucks, and cars over the years, but with 3 children and several toys to haul around nothing compares to the Ford Excursion. I made do for too long in the past. Sure the thing is huge, but smart people wouldn't buy one for everyday in town use anyhow. I purchased it for weekend getaways, vacations, and hauling. With the V10 it has more than enough grunt to do whatever I ask it to!! It rides like a truck, but... hey, it is a truck!!! I find myself cheating and driving it to work daily, instead of my gas- mizer 'cause the thing is just a blast to drive! It doesn't feel near as big and heavy driving as it looks! I love my Excursion!
