2004 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
Bought this vehicle to tow a 32 ft trailer 8500 lbs over the east coast.
Was getting 7mpg with a 2005 expedition, went to 17mpg on the excursion.
Did have to replace the turbo, the injector 8 and a starter.
But its the only 4x4 diesel suv on the market. If the truck survives a year, without more problems, I'll probably have it until the frame dies.
Size, fuel tank size, towing
Although it was discontinued because of environmental groups, it gets a better mpg than my expedition.
The camping population needs a diesel SUV. Not all families wantnto tow in a pick up
