2004 Ford Excursion SUV Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

This is our second Excursion. We frequently take excursions from SoCal into NorCal and Central Cal, delivering finished goods and transporting our two sons. With a quick mod on the air intake, we get 14+ MPG, and this includes 75mph ascent on the grapevine and fully loaded in the cabin! We got 16.3 mpg once on a trip to Vegas and back. It's bigger than other SUV's (Largest), so small cars yield and Semi's see us.


Favorite Features

The smooth ride. Maybe I'm just used to it, but the kids fall asleep QUICK! Even with the factory installed DVD player!


Suggested Improvements

Increase the mileage. We installed a Tornado into the intake and I immediately saw 1 - 2 MPG increase. I understand there are other mods available without compromising smog standards. Ford should be installing these automatically!

2004 Ford Excursion SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

We have always maintained between 14 to 18 mpg even when towing. The ease of getting in and out of the third seat is unbelievable. It is perfect when taking large groups of children because everyone can see the screen on the entertainment package. The turning ratio is better than I could have ever hoped for especially when I am coming from a Dodge Dakota with no turning ratio. We are so totally happy with this vehicle.


Favorite Features

Comfort, ease in driving, spacious interior. The cup holders are great, one for everyone. The backup alarm system is very handy and I would not want to do without it.


Suggested Improvements

Self-cleaning! Other than that it is absolutely perfect for us.
