2004 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This SUV is amazing. It is amazingly big, tall, fuel inefficient, and difficult to maneuver. But I've got 302,000 miles on the original 5.4l engine and transmission (which works out to 20,000 gallons, or $80,000, of gas). This is a serious SUV that should only be used by those who need it. Even with a V8, it is surprisingly slow. You need to pay attention when you're driving it, and a long trip can be stressful. But it holds a lot and is surprisingly competent offroad.


Best Features

Big, reliable, good seats.


Worst Features

Interior is not yuppie - plain, cheap plastic. Obviously gas mileage is bad, but only about 30% worse than many crossovers. Poor handling, braking, and ride quality.

2004 Ford Excursion Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had zero problems with my Excursion and I'm impressed! It drives as well today and it drove when I bought it. The steering wheel leather doesn't hold up well but that's about it.

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


Review

Bought new and have been driving since. I have 105,000 miles and still have original tires, brakes. Mileage has been an average of 16.8-16.9 though I do mostly highway driving. Only problem I had was the alternator went around 75,000 miles and parts are expensive for this big truck. It is fun to drive and can carry just abuot anything! Great value, too bad they got rid of this truck line!


Best Features

The DVD player is great for trips and for killing time while parked somewhere and the backup alarms are definitely needed with this land yacht! The long wheelbase allows for great handling and some speedy corners!


Worst Features

Bring this truck back! Put the new twin turbo diesel in it to bring gas mileage up some more and I will get another!

Review

I own a 6.0 Turbodiesel. This is one of a kind. Bought it for towing capacity (Have my Prius for commuting & Range Rover for off roading) and I am surprised how fond I have become of this truck. It is a shame Ford discontinued this truck. For space, power and functionality, nothing comes close. I have hauled plywood in the back (with doors closed), multiple people with their bags and a 6000lb boat behind me and it does not even break a sweat. I am planning on holding on to this truck as I do not know of any other vehicle on the market that offers all the functionality that Excursion offers. Unlike other reviews, I think mileage is fine for size and weight of the truck.


Best Features

Torque/Towing capacity, room, versatility, ride (for a truck). Even with the issues that I have had, I still really appreciate this vehicle.


Worst Features

Improve quality (Turbo replaced 3 times in first year), front seat head rests are not very functional, steering is vague. But I guess, none of these matter as they have ceased production. (I have come to understand the term Fix or repair Daily... take this comment with a grain of salt).
