2002 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We love our Excursion! We use it to tow a boat as well as a horse trailer. This is a great tow vehicle. Very comfortabe on trips, it has a great ride on the highway and has tons of power under the hood!


Favorite Features

The purse hook,room for a crowd,ride and the power of the V10 under the hood.


Suggested Improvements

Although, not the worst I've sat in the front seats could be a bit more comfortable.

2002 Ford Excursion XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have driven my diesel excursion for 71,000 trouble free miles. Used it from around town to towing, etc. I have towed 11,500 lbs from Sebrign, Fl to NC with the cruise on. My wife even drove!! It has been reliable, inexpensive vehicle to own. A little laborious to use to run to the grocery store, but if you are o the highway, it is a great truck. Pluses. Doesn't hydroplane in the WORST rainstorms, Great power 20+ MPG highway Good brakes for a vehicle of this size Handles ANY tagalong trailer you can throw at it. Good seating position drawbacks: Don't rush to get anywhere or you could get into trouble Probably could handle a little better.


Favorite Features

Diesel, crisp transmission, rear heat controls, rear vent windows, headlights (good light at night)


Suggested Improvements

Technically? a little less weight could be managed. More sophisticated front and rear suspension would improve handling and ride.

2002 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Comfortable, competent on road hauler. V-10 gives great power, little sacrifice to mileage. MUST get 4X4 in snowbelt!! (not great in RWD in snow) Watch the parking garage heights!! Not sporty, but swallows 8 people, plus their stuff (Hurray for George Carlin and "stuff") Delivers what the Hummer H2 and Suburban/Yukon XL promise


Favorite Features

V-10 and 4.11:1 Limited slip rear!!


Suggested Improvements

Tighter turning radius

Very nice. Can haul 9 people and gear anywhere...mud, snow...no problem. Plenty of HP with the V10. No brainer to pick the Excursion over the suburban.

2002 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

My husband and I bought the 7.3L Powerstroke diesel engine for trailering our toys (boats/4wheelers/snowmobiles) and hauling our great dane dog. We get 19.3 avg miles on the highway 17.5 in the city after our 5,000 mile break in. Looked at Chevys, Toyota, Lexus & BMW - the diesel is a tried and true engine. My father in law has a Ford F250 with 135k on it and my brother in law has a F350 with 160k. Engines still running perfectly.


Favorite Features

Love the back up sensors and the seat warmers. We bought the Limited - if you are going to spend this much money might as well get all you want in it!


Suggested Improvements

If you like the windows "cracked" while driving - buy the Ford after market window guards. They work great.
