2003 Ford Excursion Diesel Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I bought my Excursion in June and have
put on 8200 miles since. Most use is
at 75 to 80 mph on highway trips
without a trailer. On those trips, I
get over 20 mpg. I have a 28'
transporter which I use to haul ATV's
and camp in. With the loaded trailer
behind it, the mpg drops down to 11. I
can pull the trailer both up and down
hill as fast as I care to.


Best Features

Power is impressive. Without a trailer, it stays in 5th gear from the time I leave Salt Lake City till I get to Denver.


Worst Features

As with most SUV's I would like brighter backup lights. I also wish it did not have the 3rd seat which I never use. With the 3rd seat removed and the 2nd laid down the floor is not flat.

Review

We use our Excursion for family
vacations and towing a 35' travel
trailer.

This is a wonderful vehicle. It is well
made, powerful, quiet and gets
surprisingly good mileage. On diesel
fuel, we average 18 MPG in town and 22
on the highway. When pulling the
trailer, highway mileage drops to 19.

I have never had a vehicle that can
handle a trailer this large with such
ease. I can drive all day and not fell
beat.


Best Features

Powerful and quiet diesel engine. Seating capacity and space.


Worst Features

I cannot think of a thing I would change.

2003 Ford Excursion Diesel Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (7.3L 8cyl Turbodiesel 4A)


Review

I average 19 mpg on the highway, 16
stop & go, and can carry everybody and
their stuff! This is a terrific
vehicle, and the diesel is quieter than
I expected.

Worst Features

An easier way to get the third seat out, or have it fold into the floor.

Review

LOTS OF POWER WITH THE 7.3L, UNDER FULL
LOAD AND TOWING 7500LB'S, THE BABY GETS
UP TO HIGHWAY SPEEDS FAST.

WITH NO ONE ELSE BUT THE DRIVER ON
BOARD YOU AND BLOW THE DOORS OFF ALMOST
ALL SPORTS CARS AND TRUCKS OFF THE LINE
AND HANDELS GREAT IN THE TURNS.

LOYS OF ROOM FOR LUGGAGE BE HID THE 3RD
SEAT. A MUST FOR ANY FAMILY WITH MORE
THAN 2 KIDS.
