Review of the 2005 Ford Excursion

  • Unless you really need the Excursion's towing ability and huge interior, you're better off with the smaller Expedition or GM's Suburban/Yukon XL twins.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Substantial passenger and cargo capacity, impressive towing ability, diesel engine option.

  • Cons

    Unwieldy size, trucklike driving characteristics, poor fuel economy, high sticker price.

  • What's New for 2005

    Alloy wheels replace chrome steel wheels on XLS models, and the front fascia appearance has been slightly revised.

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Excursion XLT Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

I like the exterior modifications and the positive acceleration for the 2005 lineup. The ride and handling characteristic take awhile to get used to. I really don't like the extra swaying of the vehicle; maybe a heavier duty shock needs to be used at all corners. The now standard Pirelli tires really helped me decide to get the vehicle. It made me think that Ford really wants the best for its customer.
