Love my Excursion! we're a tall family
of 5, husband 6'3, wife 5'10 and three
kids ages 10,10, & 13 who are all tall
for their age. We frequently tow a
jeep or sand rail and an occasional
boat. Towing ability is great, plenty
of leg room for long hauls (500 miles
to get to the beach). Great for the
winter driving, snow is no worry.
Great hwy mpg (16-18) getting kids into
town for school with the diesel. 4X4
does great driving in sand or to rocky
trail heads. Like the firm ride-
doesn't feel like a boat bobbing around
like other lrg SUV's. It's big--but
worth it if your a big family who
travels & tows.

The Excursion's final year of production is 2004 so there are few changes from last year. Ford's excellent new 6.0-liter turbodiesel V8 replaces last year's 7.3-liter diesel. Besides offering considerably more horsepower and torque, the new engine has cleaner emissions and gets better gas mileage. Several new options are available; these include wireless headphones for the rear-seat entertainment package and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Body-side cladding and illuminated running boards are no longer available on XLT models. Also note that the trim level structure has been revised slightly, as base XLS and midlevel XLT trim replace XLT Value and XLT Premium.
