2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

Great truck except the 6.0L Diesel has a factory defect. The head bolts stretch. Blew a head gasket just before warranty was up. Over $5000 cost to repair. They remove the body to repair the engine which disturbs many electrical and other connections. Some owners have to pay after warranty is up. I like it but not sure I would buy another Ford after this engine. Check the internet before buying regarding this engine.

2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

This SUV can tow anything, haul the
wife, 3 kids, dog, gear-and gets GREAT
mpg. The truck is large, but it's
shorter than a 3/4 ton crewcab pickup.
It gets much better gas mileage than a
Durango with more space - WAY more.
Although it's a 3/4 ton, it rides
smoothly, and talk about power - I
towed my 27ft travel trailer from VA to
FL at speeds averaging 65-70 mph and it
never once kicked out of overdrive -
and I got a solid 12 mpg out of it - the
2002 Yukon XLT I traded in didn't come
close - about 7.5 mpg with less tow
capacity. With no trailer I averaged
almost 20 mpg HWY. I went 802 miles
without filling up. Size, power,
range, leather, DVD - it's the dream
SUV for any RV/Truck/Family guy


Best Features

My favorite feature is its total utility! A muscular diesel tied to a luxuriously comfortable SUV with leather seating for 7 (2nd row captain's chairs) is a dream come true. Whether towing my RV or keeping the kids amused with a DVD, there's no other truck on the planet with such a total package.


Worst Features

I'd stiffen the ride up a little to tighten up the turns. Strengthen Ford corporate backbone; advertise the diesel, the power, the MPG. Put the PSD badge on the door; I'm amazed how few folks know the PSD availble on the X. Discontinuing this gem is a mistake made by scared executives - C'mon Ford!

Review

this is a great SUV, that is extremely
utilitarian, and very powerful. Lights
up the rear wheels with ease and a
great trail rig. Took it with me,
toured europe and the middle east.
pulling up at a stop light and leaving
other cars in the dust was great. Also
i averaged a range of 700 miles per
tank!! I highly recommend this SUV.
The diesels rock!!

Review

I cringe at referring to the mighty
Excursion as an SUV since it is built
on an F-250 frame, has a diesel engine
option, tows up to 11,000 pounds, and
performs like a truck. The Excursion
is not a good choice for "around town"
driving. But, if you travel a lot, and
have a family or just stuff, the is
nothing more practical than the big E.
Three essential options: Four Wheel
Drive, diesel engine, and the Trailer
Tow Group. It doesn't make sense to
spend the $ on this vehicle and not get
4WD. The 6.0L Power Stroke Diesel gets
20 MPG on the highway, accelerates
well, and starts easily in the cold.
The Trailer Tow Group has better
mirrors and a rear stabilizer bar that
helps in the wind.


Best Features

Interior room. There is enough to haul a 1/2 a chord of firewood in the back. This new Power Stroke diesel is the best engine I have ever seen. Very, very comfortable on long trips. The rear DVD system is a nice option to pass the time.


Worst Features

The rear stabilizer bar of the Trailer Tow Group and the block heater should be standard equipment. True barn doors for the back would be a nice option as well.
