2004 Ford Excursion 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.

Favorite 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.

Suggested Improvements

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.
