I love it. We only have two kids so far, but to go anywhere takes a lot of stuff and room for it. This can fit it all and lots more, especially for those long road trips. The diesel engine's performance is phenomenal. It is so powerful. Right now we are averaging about 16.5 mpg, and about 680 miles a tank. Not bad considering gas excursions get approximately 7-8 mpg. :-) I would suggest this car to anyone.

Overall an exceptional buy. Paid $6,000 under MSRP. Fuel economy in first 400 miles is 18 MPG combined city & highway. Ride, despite other's criticism, is much better than the pickup trucks I have owned in the past. Not quite as good as my Expedition but overall a good ride. Length of the vehicle is the same as a pickup truck with a long bed and regular cab. Fits in my garage with an Expedition just fine. It also gets 3 miles a gallon better mileage than my Expedition.

This SUV gave me the luxury to hold passengers and cargo and not lose the comfort and ease of either. I have found the Excursion easier to drive then I expected for a truck this size. I love carrying my entire family and their gear!

This is my 2nd Excursion (1st is a
2002). We travel extensivly and the
leg room and width of the interior is
excellent. I also use it for towing
and even with a fully loaded trailer,
the power is still there. I can climb
a mountain (the Blue Ridge's) at 75mph
with no problem. Because I mostly use
it on the highway/interstates my gas
mileage is fairly high, averaging
around 17.5-20.00mpg per tank. In town
driving I usually get 14.5-15.5mpg. I
first chose the Excursion for the
interior room. The cargo space far
outpaces that of the Suburban/Yukon and
the Expedition. The price is also much
better than its competitors and the
quality of the materials used is much
