2005 Ford Excursion SUV 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.

Best Features

Exceptional paint finish; remarkable seating comfort & large window visibility; incredibly good premium CD sound system (a huge and pleasant surprise!); tri-gate rear door arrangement, cargo flexibility; super shiny alloy wheels; plus well-engineered dual a/c units.

Worst Features

The XLS is a best buy when it comes to the wide array of standard features - but it would have been nice to have factory-installed fog lights, too. This would add a little more panache to a great new front fascia treatment (sporting the new jewel-effect headlights, updated grill and chrome bumper).
