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


Review

We wanted a large SUV to accommodate traveling with three daughters under the age of 5, their stuff, our stuff, and the necessary traveling goodies to keep them entertained. We started with a 02 Explorer, but it filled fast, necessitating the purchase of an external hitch carrier. Compared to the Explorer, the Excursion is a cave and can handle loads of stuff. We recently packed it with two tricycles, two small bikes with training wheels, a stroller, and a duffle bag. Everything fit behind the third seat! Right now we are averaging 16 mpg combined driving.


Favorite Features

Ample space with storage bins. Great gas mileage for size. Acceleration is quick and passing is no problem. Very comfortable on highway and long trips.


Suggested Improvements

Turning radius is a bit big but no real problem. Handling not as true as Explorer.

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


Review

Bulletproof is the only way to describe this vehicle. It is heavy, safe and drives like a "rig." I have the wife, three kids and parents-in-law all in the truck and we all feel safe. Everyone gets out of the way or does want to be behind you in this truck. It is amazingly smooth and comfortable. The build quality blows away any GM product I have ever owned or rode in. I traded the Expedition for the Excursion and the difference is immense; plastic bumpers on the 2003 Expedition. The bumpers on the Excursion remind me of a 1950's vehicle because they are so solid. You will never be out of room again with this thing.


Favorite Features

Interior comfort. The DVD is great for the kids. Cup holders everywhere. Fit and finish is incredible. The diesel starts right up. Forget what you think you know about diesels.


Suggested Improvements

The diesel background noise takes a couple of weeks to get used to. After that, you will enjoy it.
