2005 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
Review
Large capacity SUV that is not for the timid. This is my second one with a diesel engine. Milage is about mid 17 on my comutes and about 19 on the highway. In Florida last year with no hills and 55 mph speed limit the milage went over 22 mpg. Not bad for GVW @ 9200 lbs. New diesel is quieter than 01 model year. For some reason the tree hugers don't like this one but that's because they haven't educated themselves to what this vechicle is all about. I may agree with the gas version but certainly not the diesel. Interior finish is good to excellent. It handles well considering its weight and height above the ground. Try one you will like it.
Favorite Features
Diesel engine is low maintenance and great mileage. This engine will outlast the body if properly maintained. Exterior design is clean and straight forward. Lack of chrome in the 05s is definetly a good thing. Interior workmanship is as good as any luxury car. There are 6 power ports.
Suggested Improvements
Brakes should be bigger. The seats should be air conditioned.
