I LIVE IN TEXAS WHERE IT IS TURE WE
TRAVEL 22 MILES JUST FOR BREAKFAST.
THIS VEHICLE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE
FOR CAMPING AND TRAVELING, TOWING. THIS
NEW 6.0 DIESEL IS QUITE AND HAS PLENTY
OF GO POWER. THE BEST NEW FEATURE IS
THE 5 SPEED TRANSMISSION. VERY
COMFORTABLE OVER LONG DISTANT

The Excursion is the best kept secret.
the 6.0 Turbo Diesel gets excellent
fuel mileage, I don't know where the
critics get there 411 on fuel economy?
I wouyld take an Excursion over a
Suburban any day.
A new Eddie Bauer trim level debuts. It's equipped similarly to last year's Limited trim and also includes Arizona Beige exterior trim, two-tone leather seating and available second-row captain's chairs. Limited models get as standard equipment a six-disc in-dash CD changer, new aluminum wheels, cherrywood interior trim and a reversible cargo mat. In terms of mechanical changes, a new 6.0-liter turbodiesel engine arrives mid-year with more power and efficiency, connected to an all new five-speed TorqShift automatic transmission. Why anyone would use this mammoth rig to go trail busting we have no idea, but Ford will be offering an off-road package shortly after the first of the year. Finally, all Excursions get revised front suspensions for improved ride and handling.
