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.

The big replacement

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)

I had wanted an Excursion since they first arived on the showroom floor. I finally got one nine years later, as a replacement for two vehicles. It now takes the place of my Lincoln Town Car and a 4wd 15 passenger van, which was a hard thing to do. I wanted all the luxury inside an suv just like my Lincoln Cartier, the room, rugedness,and 4wd go anywhere of my van. It has replaced them both with flying colors, and made me very happy. It is very comfortable and ride hieght is excelent. I use this vehicle for work, family and play.




Better than two previous towncars

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

Unlike the Towncars little or no road and wind noise. Most miles are annual trips between Florida and New Jersey. Loaded to the roof, it has more than adequate power. At 14,062 every aspect of it is dependable and holding up better than any other car I have owned.

Beauty and a beast

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)

We purchased a pair (2) 2005 Ford Excursion Limited's with the 6.0L turbo diesel. We traded in a pair (2) of Volvo's. With three (3) growing kids and lots of gear, the Volvo's just could not carry the loads without going to roof racks. The diesel Excursion is a treat. So much power, so much room, so much safety. selected againt Chevy/ GMC, Caddy because we love Ford diesels since they run much stronger and longer. Plus, those are all smaller interiors. I wish Ford would revisit making the Excursion. We bought two (2) of the 2005 model with the Limited package. We will replace the engines if they ever need it, with the new updated Powerstroke found in the 2009 Super Duty pick-ups.
