2005 Ford Excursion Diesel Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

The power of this outstanding vehicle is unbelievable. I would recommend it to the world, and definitely over the Chev Suburban. Not to mention the incredible space! Too bad they stopped making it.


Favorite Features

The diesel engine, and the massive space capacity.


Suggested Improvements

GPS would be nice, they could put that in the new Expedition.

2005 Ford Excursion Diesel Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I have gotten up to 22 miles per gallon hwy and it's not even broken in yet. The Excursion is everything I need or could ever what in an SUV. I'm saddened Ford is not going to make them anymore!


Favorite Features

I love everything about the Excursion! Can't name one certain item!


Suggested Improvements

NONE!

2005 Ford Excursion Diesel Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

I was surprised to get 16 mpg - much better than my Jeep Wrangler. I've driven similar trucks and usually got around 9 or 10 mpg. I'm really impressed with the power of the 6.0 diesel - it definitely outperforms the older 7.3.


Favorite Features

Leather interior, sound and DVD system, available turbo diesel and 4WD.


Suggested Improvements

Was never offered in a King Ranch package - although I hear Ford may be producing a longer version of the Expedition in the future to replace the discontinued Excursion.

Enjoy this truck a lot. Plenty of space and power for towing and love the big tank!


Favorite Features

Power for towing and diesel mileage.


Suggested Improvements

3rd seat should fold into cargo floor. Need more comfortable seats.

2005 Ford Excursion Diesel Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

This is by far the best truck we have ever owned. It will carry or drag anything you ask of it. We when though three hurricanes last year and this truck never missed a step. From dragging fallen trees out of the road to carrying building supplies, it never let us down. And when every one ran out of gas it was still easy to find diesel.


Favorite Features

Power Stroke engine has great power and still gets 17MPG! Drives so smooth you forget you're driving almost 8000lbs down the road.


Suggested Improvements

Dealership, Dealership, Dealership. Ford has the best trucks on the market but their product support needs a lot of help.
