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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

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