2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)

Review

This SUV can tow anything, haul the
wife, 3 kids, dog, gear-and gets GREAT
mpg. The truck is large, but it's
shorter than a 3/4 ton crewcab pickup.
It gets much better gas mileage than a
Durango with more space - WAY more.
Although it's a 3/4 ton, it rides
smoothly, and talk about power - I
towed my 27ft travel trailer from VA to
FL at speeds averaging 65-70 mph and it
never once kicked out of overdrive -
and I got a solid 12 mpg out of it - the
2002 Yukon XLT I traded in didn't come
close - about 7.5 mpg with less tow
capacity. With no trailer I averaged
almost 20 mpg HWY. I went 802 miles
without filling up. Size, power,
range, leather, DVD - it's the dream
SUV for any RV/Truck/Family guy

Best Features

My favorite feature is its total utility! A muscular diesel tied to a luxuriously comfortable SUV with leather seating for 7 (2nd row captain's chairs) is a dream come true. Whether towing my RV or keeping the kids amused with a DVD, there's no other truck on the planet with such a total package.

Worst Features

I'd stiffen the ride up a little to tighten up the turns. Strengthen Ford corporate backbone; advertise the diesel, the power, the MPG. Put the PSD badge on the door; I'm amazed how few folks know the PSD availble on the X. Discontinuing this gem is a mistake made by scared executives - C'mon Ford!
