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


Review

Love the loadspace, gas pedal and overall size/comfort inside. With 1500 miles we lost our coolant -the factory didn't quite get the hose clamp right - a damaged hose and several days later back owning the road. Can't get past a gas station without a stop -around $65 these days if you let it get to a 1/4. Great hauler. Not for anyone on a budget -pretty sure, as an owner group, we are keeping OPEC running...


Favorite Features

Size & gas pedal...


Suggested Improvements

Poor quality control, squeaks sneak in fast after the first few hundred miles.

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


Review

Awesome truck, former 6.5L Chevy diesel Suburban owner. Gas mileage takes a bit of getting used to but passing cars going up mountains pulling a 30' travel trailer is a thrill. The V10 WILL do the job if you can afford to put gas in it.


Favorite Features

Awesome engine.


Suggested Improvements

Better sound. It is ok but for the price, should be better.

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


Review

I’ve owned many vehicles in my years. Among them, 4 SUVs. The Excursions by far is the best of the SUVs. At first I hesitated because of its size. After a few short miles I found it to be very easy to drive as did my wife, who now is the primary driver, I only get it on weekends. It has plenty of room and power to spare. I find it hard to believe FORD is discontinuing this vehicle. I found nothing but praise for it in everything I read.


Favorite Features

It’s styling, it’s handling, it’s room, it’s power what more can you say? It’s got everything.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage, with today’s technologies Ford should be able to do better. The V10 is state of the art.

Review

This is a great truck! The only real gripe I have is it rides and sounds like a truck on the inside. I had a eddie bauer expedition with the air suspension before and it had a great ride. This truck has way to many creaks and rattles. The gmc denali doesn't have creaks and rattles!


Favorite Features

V-10 Power!!! Towing capicity 30' boat 10k plus 75mph 11 mpg. The room 6 people and everything you need to tailgate at the orange bowl


Suggested Improvements

air suspension. more sound absorbing insulation. less creaks and rattles
