Review

I have the Powerstroke 6.0 diesel. Use truck for towing 32' travel trailer - works great. Interior seats are very spacious and comfortable. 20mph hwy/16 city. Towing 12 - 13 mpg. Will hate to see it discontinued.


Best Features

Front seats, rear double door, interior cargo options, Powerstroke 6.0l diesel

Electric mirror extend/retract capability.

2003 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

The Excursion is so comfortable! The 7 people in my family, including 2 teenagers, fit wonderfully in this vehicle. Road trips are a breeze! It takes a little time to get used to parking this beast, but it's well worth the effort. I am saddened that this vehicle will not be made after 2005.


Best Features

Interior space, smooth ride.

2003 Ford Excursion Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second Excursion. We have traveled nationwide with a family of six and all were comfortable. It handles great in mountains or deserts. I get about 20 mpg on the highway and 15 mpg in town.


Best Features

I love the size and the weight of the vehicle. I also work out of it and can pull any trailer and carry as much as I could in a pickup.


Worst Features

Don't ever put on all terrain tires and expect a quiet ride. I'm also sad that they will not be made by Ford anymore.

2003 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

This is the second Excursion I've
owned. The first had the V-10 and
really bad mileage. The 6.0 diesel is
very powerfull and gets GREAT mileage
for the size of the vehicle. On the
highway, I average 24 MPG at 75 MPH.
My Jeep Wrangler gets a paltry 15 MPG's.
We have had a few minor, but annoying
problems, particularly electrical ( A/C
looses power.. just shuts off ) but far
less than the problems we had with the
2000 V-10 ( also electrical, interior
lights would blink on and off everytime
it rained and it rains a lot in
FLorida ). Overall, this vehicle
represents the best value for people /
cargo around.


Best Features

Economy, power, comfort, and especially the "feel" of absolute safety, knowing you're the biggest, badest SUV on the road. My 5 foot, 105 lb. wife REALLY loves it ( must be a chick thing ;)


Worst Features

Get the electrical system right !! and redesign the window rims so that water doesn't pour in if you crack open a window in a rainstorm ( even 1/2 an inch ). Wind noise is annoying. Ford should keep building this vehicle, but ONLY offer it in the diesel. GREAT Mileage !!!!

Review

Pay extra for the Diesel Engine, it is
worth for the fuel economy. The new
Turbo 6.0 engine is Fabulous and
surprisingly quiet.


Best Features

Make sure that you get the towing mirrors, it makes a huge difference seeing around the huge blind spots.
