2004 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

I have found the excursion to be a worthy competitor to the chevy suburban. Although gas mileage is slightly worse than the chevy, the power and driveability of the excursion is unequaled. The steering is more responsive then the chevy even though it is some seven inches longer and approx. 1900 lbs heavier. Do not be intimidated by the size of this vehicle. On the exterior it seems almost too big to control, but when in the drivers seat control is all you will feel. The high stance of the excursion provides superior visability in city and highway traffic. Noise levels are at minimum even when on the highway passing big rigs.


Best Features

Approx. 48 cubic feet of storage without moving any of the seats, and an unbelievable 100 cubic feet when you remove the third seat and fold the second seat. I can fit a 4'x8' sheet of plywood in the back with room to spare all the way around!!


Worst Features

I would change the location of the 4wd drive controls. They are located on the right side of the steering wheel on the dash. This position requires the driver to move his head to the right slightly to see them. I would also like to see an optional full time traction control system.

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


Review

i have always wanted this truck. i traded in her 98 expedition.my limited's color is mineral gray which is a very rich color.i had a remote starter,power sunroof and navigation installed by the dealer.i had the nav unit un-installed and the original cd6-radio re- installed.the reason being is that with the nav unit you lose your radio controls in the steering wheel and the console and you can only listen to dvd movies on the headphones.my wife did not care for these inconviences so the original unit went back in.i am getting 14 mpg in in-town driving and with the 44 gallon tank it is weeks between fill-ups


Best Features

so far the quality and quietness of this truck is great.everything works with a feeling of quality.my kids love the dvd setup and with the gamers power pack i bought they love playing game cube also


Worst Features

i would love the third seat to be powered like the expedition's.it does not have to fold into the floor but if it was powered and maybe even split it would be easier to lower down and put the load on top of it
