Review of the 2002 Ford Excursion

  • Too much truck for too many people. Buy a Suburban if you need a nine-passenger SUV that can tow.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Provides safe haven for the family, carries lots of stuff, truck-tough underpinnings can take lots of abuse.

  • Cons

    Won't fit in a standard garage, drives like a loaded U-Haul, horrific fuel economy, hard to park, can't beat the Suburban at its own game.

  • What's New for 2002

    Excursions get crystalline headlamp lenses for 2002, as well as "smart" intermittent front and rear wipers. XLTs gain a new auto-lock feature as well as standard third-row child seat tethers with a BeltMinder system. Excursion Limited receives a chrome side strip, automatic climate control and power-adjustable pedals. New options on XLT include power-adjustable pedals and a power front passenger seat. Limited models can be equipped with memory seats and pedals, second-row captain's chairs and redundant controls for climate and audio on the steering wheel. Both XLT and Limited will get a DVD-based entertainment system for rear-seat passengers later this year. Skid plates are no longer optional.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Excursion Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

What a great truck/suv. Hard to find and there is a reason why. Reliability and ready to roll when needed




Good kid hauler

Very good SUV. Good ride, and nice interior and exterior. 2wd has very smooth ride compared to 4wd.




2002 excursion limited diesel

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Excursion Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

Amazing fuel mileage for such a huge vehicle - Diesel 7.3L. The ultimate travel vehicle - plenty of space, rear air and rear entertainment - lots of cup holders, very smooth on the hiway. I do not have 4wd.




Trailer hauler/people mover

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Excursion Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

So far reliable. 1 Firestone failure. Pulls a 9000 trailer very well getting 12-13 mpg. Gets 20 mpg+ without trailer with optional diesel. Will travel over 850 miles per 44 gal tank. Noisy outside but economy makes it worth it. Truck based, ride is harsh on bumps. 3.73 rear axle is right.




Doesn't hold value.

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Excursion Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

I really love my Excursion. My only complaint is, based on Edmunds, the value of my 2002 is about $5,000.00 less than I owe (after almost 2 years) AND I GOT 0% INTEREST. That is pretty darn bad. Even the dealership where I bought the Excursion was not going to give me pay-off....then they tried to sale me a 2004. Other than holding it's value this truck is awesome. We take it everywhere. I have three growing boys (teens and pre-teens) and we can all fit in the truck very comfortably. It is the ultimate "large family" vehicle. Plus, Ford makes a great diesel engine.




Wow!

Vehicle: 2002 Ford Excursion Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

I love this car so far! I bought it used with 52,000 miles. It has the 7.3L Turbo Diesel and it seems that it will continue driving strong for a long time to come. I'm 6 feet tall and this is the car I was meant to drive because of it's comfort, reliability and luxuriousness. I won't want a new car for a very long time! Thanks Ford!
