Not as bad as you may think!

ReviewThis is our second Excursion. We frequently take excursions from SoCal into NorCal and Central Cal, delivering finished goods and transporting our two sons. With a quick mod on the air intake, we get 14+ MPG, and this includes 75mph ascent on the grapevine and fully loaded in the cabin! We got 16.3 mpg once on a trip to Vegas and back. It's bigger than other SUV's (Largest), so small cars yield and Semi's see us.
Best FeaturesThe smooth ride. Maybe I'm just used to it, but the kids fall asleep QUICK! Even with the factory installed DVD player!
Worst FeaturesIncrease the mileage. We installed a Tornado into the intake and I immediately saw 1 - 2 MPG increase. I understand there are other mods available without compromising smog standards. Ford should be installing these automatically!
