ReviewWe wanted a large SUV to accommodate traveling with three daughters under the age of 5, their stuff, our stuff, and the necessary traveling goodies to keep them entertained. We started with a 02 Explorer, but it filled fast, necessitating the purchase of an external hitch carrier. Compared to the Explorer, the Excursion is a cave and can handle loads of stuff. We recently packed it with two tricycles, two small bikes with training wheels, a stroller, and a duffle bag. Everything fit behind the third seat! Right now we are averaging 16 mpg combined driving.
Best FeaturesAmple space with storage bins. Great gas mileage for size. Acceleration is quick and passing is no problem. Very comfortable on highway and long trips.
Worst FeaturesTurning radius is a bit big but no real problem. Handling not as true as Explorer.
