2005 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)
Don't know why this vehicle was discontinued. I would continue to by this car until I can't drive anymore. I got it for 18k because the dealership couldnt move it, 35k miles mint condition turbo diesel. Have put on 5k miles in 2 months and love it - diesel could be cheaper. Very comfortable, great visibility and overall very safe. Mileage can be better and diesel requires some extra care like plugging in at night when it's cold and $200 oil changes (15q) but like I said I would buy many more. Hate Ford love the Excursion and we are 3 people in total and have all the space and comfort in the world, as well as room to pick up my 7 siblings when they fly in for a weekend rain, snow, or shine.
Safety, comfort, ease of operation, view of traffic, diesel noise putting my family to sleep on long hauls. Can't find much fault and regardless of fault would buy more.
Better mileage, cheaper diesel fuel and massaging captains chairs.
