2003 Ford Excursion 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.

Size


Suggested Improvements

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

Review

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.

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


Review

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 EXCURSIONS.


Favorite Features

OUR ANNUAL VACATION THIS YEAR WAS 12 NATIONAL PARKS AND SIX WEEKS CAMPING IN THE FAR WEST. THE EASE OF USE IS EXCITING NEW TRUCK GAVE US GREAT CONFIDENCE TO GO TO SOME VERY OUT OF THE WAS PLACES WITHOUT FEAR OF NOT COMING BACK!


Suggested Improvements

WHAT I DO WHEN I GET A NEW EXCURSION IS TO REPLACE THE SHOCKS WITH OFF ROAD ADJUSTABLE AIR SHOCKS. THE RIDE ACTUALLY IMPROVES FRONT AND REAR. THE VEHICLE IS SOMEHAT UNDER TIRED. 285X70X16 BF GOODRICH A/T IS THE CORRECT TIRE FOR THIS 8,000 LB. TRUCK.

Review

Got diesel fuel economy 17 mpg. at present only complaint vehicle had no rear sway bar. I added one from hellwig big diffence. ford warranty needs to be addressed 3yr/360000 bumper to bumper. 5yr/100000 on drive train which means diesel motor only.


Favorite Features

6 disc cd ride good for a big vehicle can haul any thing you want no holds barred


Suggested Improvements

more contoured seats for drive and passenger. center seat console instead of just console f- series has it. rear sway bar standard. shading tint a little darker
