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


Review

this is a great SUV, that is extremely
utilitarian, and very powerful. Lights
up the rear wheels with ease and a
great trail rig. Took it with me,
toured europe and the middle east.
pulling up at a stop light and leaving
other cars in the dust was great. Also
i averaged a range of 700 miles per
tank!! I highly recommend this SUV.
The diesels rock!!

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


Review

I cringe at referring to the mighty
Excursion as an SUV since it is built
on an F-250 frame, has a diesel engine
option, tows up to 11,000 pounds, and
performs like a truck. The Excursion
is not a good choice for "around town"
driving. But, if you travel a lot, and
have a family or just stuff, the is
nothing more practical than the big E.
Three essential options: Four Wheel
Drive, diesel engine, and the Trailer
Tow Group. It doesn't make sense to
spend the $ on this vehicle and not get
4WD. The 6.0L Power Stroke Diesel gets
20 MPG on the highway, accelerates
well, and starts easily in the cold.
The Trailer Tow Group has better
mirrors and a rear stabilizer bar that
helps in the wind.


Best Features

Interior room. There is enough to haul a 1/2 a chord of firewood in the back. This new Power Stroke diesel is the best engine I have ever seen. Very, very comfortable on long trips. The rear DVD system is a nice option to pass the time.


Worst Features

The rear stabilizer bar of the Trailer Tow Group and the block heater should be standard equipment. True barn doors for the back would be a nice option as well.

Review

I purchased in july 04 and have 5000
miles so far.Averaging 16.3 mpg.I
replaced the shocks after 2 weeks with
MONROE REFLEX shocks. I highly
recommend this if you want the best
ride and handling for this truck.Rubber
mldgs on drivers side noisy. I put some
back to black rubber treatment on them
and noise went away.My daughter loves
this truck so much she had to give it a
kiss.Over 700 miles per tankful is a
joy.


Best Features

Love the front seats. The diesel is GREAT


Worst Features

Add a nav system. Third row seat that folds into floor

Review

My Excursion is a 2003. I love the room
and the fuel economy. Have had it over
a year and have had no problems. Is the
only vehicle that I have bought that I
have not had to take back to the dealer
and get a lot of small things fixed.
Took a 5000 mile trip with it this
summer and had 4 adults and three
children in it. All were very
comfortable. My fuel economy is 18 to
20 mpg at 70mph+ and 14 to 15 mpg in the
city. There is no comparison to my
wife's Chrysler Town and Country mini
van. The Excursion is more comfortable.


Best Features

The performance and fuel economy of the 6.0 diesel.


Worst Features

None
