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.

Favorite Features

Big, reliable, good seats.

Suggested Improvements

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.
