Bulletproof is the only way to describe
this vehicle. It is heavy, safe and
drives like a "rig." I have the wife,
three kids and parents-in-law all in
the truck and we all feel safe.
Everyone gets out of the way or does
want to be behind you in this truck. It
is amazingly smooth and comfortable.
The build quality blows away any GM
product I have ever owned or rode in. I
traded the Expedition for the Excursion
and the difference is immense; plastic
bumpers on the 2003 Expedition. The
bumpers on the Excursion remind me of a
1950's vehicle because they are so
solid. You will never be out of room
again with this thing.
Interior comfort. The DVD is great for
the kids. Cup holders everywhere. Fit
and finish is incredible. The diesel
starts right up. Forget what you think
you know about diesels.
The diesel background noise takes a
couple of weeks to get used to. After
that, you will enjoy it.
