2003 Ford Excursion XLT Value Rwd 4dr SUV (7.3L 8cyl Turbodiesel 4A)
The ride is not as good as expected.
The seat sits a little higher than the
F-250 truck making it more like driving
a commercial vehicle. It is rough
riding on rough interstate highway. The
turning radius is wide. The vehicle
does not drive as good as a Suburban
but the engine, fuel mileage (18 mpg or
better at 72 mph), size of tank,
visibility is excellent. The engine
runs great, although the first factory
re-programing made it run rough and
slower than it did before. This is a
nice vehicle, a better value than the
Suburban. A better seat and driver's
position, with a smaller turn radius,
would make it great.
Large fuel tank, engine and
transmission. Size elimates most road
rage from other drivers. Mileage is
better than most other SUV's.
Better front seats, better driver
position to steering wheel, smaller
