Excursion-The Ultimate Highway Hauler
By Nitro276 on
Vehicle2004 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
ReviewI 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 FeaturesInterior 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 FeaturesThe 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.
