2005 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
Wonderful towing capabilities- you
hardly know have something back there.
We generally tow between 5000 and 9000
lbs. Quick response both when asking for
speed and when asking for stopping.
Comfortable for passengers and great
cargo capacity both with all the seats
in place and without. Fuel economy has
been around 20mpg(diesel) which I don't
think is bad for the size of the vehicle.
Jeez, where to start, it's so well
designed. I think the neatest feature is
the tow/haul control. When negotiating a
steep incline you can set this feature
to maintain a speed that you determine-
no constant braking
Seats seem to be a little stiff-very
roomy and comfortable in that regard but
difficult for a short person to be
comfortable on a long trip because of seat
