Bigger is better

ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesLarge (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
Worst FeaturesThird row seat needs some modifications. By its very nature it is large and takes up cargo space when stored in the collapsed position.
