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 XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)

Surveys tend to indicate that virtually all SUV owners wish they had more room. It was this logic that led us to the purchase of the 2005 Excursion - sporting restyling features that put it over the top for irresistibility. Once you easily adapt your driving habits to accommodate the characteristics of the Excursion, you will never look back. It's a very social vehicle that lets passengers get comfortable and enjoy being together. Out of nowhere, amidst the line of mostly GM SUVs at her school during dismissal, my young daughter proclaimed: "I carry pride for that grill!". They ought to use that slogan in a Ford TV commercial.
