2005 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
Review
I was uncertain about making the jump to an Excursion so in 2003 I purchased a comperable Expedition. This year I was fortunate enough to find an Excursion at the very least compareable to my Expedition. The first thing I noticed was more interior room. The seat configuration makes sense. The steering is tighter I suspect because of the different suspension but I like the solid feel. Acceleration feels slugish at first but after a while you adapt to the Diesel performance. When the power is needed it only requires a deeper push oif the accelerator.
Favorite Features
Large (40 gallon) fuel tank and an indicator of how many more miles left to empty. Grab handers for passenger acces in every possible position. Plenty of power access ports for all elctronic power cords. Turbo charger provides plenty of power on demand
Suggested Improvements
Third row seat needs some modifications. By its very nature it is large and takes up cargo space when stored in the collapsed position.
