2000 Ford Excursion XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

We were looking for a vehicle with some power. We still have teenagers at home so a truck was out and we already had gone the van route. I didn't even know that Ford made such an animal. We test drove Chevy Suburbans but nothing in our price range performed like our 'X'. The 'X' (affectionate name Excursion owners have for their vehicles) is not your average grocery getter SUV. It is made with a purpose that suited ours perfectly. Ours also has the 4.30 optional gears as well. It pulls our travel trailer with plenty of power to spare. My wife had already driven vans so the mirrors were no problem. This is a big station wagon with lots of guts. Other than the fuel economy, this SUV rocks!


Best Features

Sits up high. Three seats with plenty of room. Power everything. Power to spare. I love to drive this thing!


Worst Features

I really wish they could do something about the fuel economy. But when you are driving something with 10 cylinders, you probably shouldn't be worrying about gas.

2000 Ford Excursion XLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Well, I have wanted one of these for a while; haven't had it too long, but so far it is everything I wanted in a truck. Used it for a long road trip to see family/friends, got 13.5 miles a gallon, drove in extreme comfort. Also have a 1997 Kia Sephia and didn't want to drive it this far, so I bought my Excursion, and I absolutely love it. People see this thing coming and get out of the way. Took out third seat and laid a full size air mattress in the back, love all the power options, and the power/manual hubs for the 4X4. And all the room in this thing. Buying used it was cheaper than you think.


Best Features

4X4, power 1/4 windows, stereo with second row control, ability to fold second seat down, trip computer, seeing everyone look at it when it goes by, having a unique vehicle, the power of the V-10, and getting 13 miles a gallon from this 7100 lb beast and going 500+ miles between fill ups.


Worst Features

Have the second row fold flat instead of butting up to the front seats, have the doors unlock with one push of the button and auto lock when car is put in drive, and I don't like that when you open a door every light on the truck comes on.

2000 Ford Excursion Limited 4dr SUV


Review

Well what can I say the Excursion is the biggest SUV out there with just about everything you need on board. The Excursion is highly appealing unlike the Suburban with its cheap plain look.The Excursion has a very flashy exterior with its shiny grill and crystal clear lights and limo like body - the Excursion will make you look twice. With a comfortable interior you're pretty much set for the road ahead. People who review the Excursion and say its useless except for carrying up to 9 passengers and having a big cargo space; hey it's not any diffrent than the enormous Escalade ESV or the H2 Hummer (which looks like an an ARMY truck). If Ford discontinues this car it will be a huge mistake.


Best Features

My favorite features would have to be the reverse sensing system. The DVD & sound system are grea t - it's a theater.


Worst Features

I believe the Excursion should be continued rather than making an extended Expedition. I believe they should give a better suspension, make it a bit more luxurious on the outside and still leave the power from within; it would make it mote competitive.

2000 Ford Excursion Limited 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Big, spacious hauler with plenty of room for our three kids and two dogs. The Excursion is our main vehicle for our weekly trips to the ski slops in Vermont and there is no better truck on the road to handle the weather we drive in. The diesel gets around 16-18 mpg and stays about the same even when towing a 9,000 lb tractor. I am replacing this truck with an '05 Excursion. I had two Suburbans before this truck, and they did not have the hauling and towing capacity as this truck has.

Review

Vehicle has been very dependable. Plenty of room. Features are great. Better mileage than expected for its size and larger gas engine. If you need a large SUV and realize that it will not provide you with 30 mpg, this is a great vehicle.


Best Features

Rear passenger heat and cool is great. Heated seats wonderful. Sound system very nice. Back-up alarm is a fantastic feature.


Worst Features

Front alarm system would be nice for tight parking and object notification. Would like a slightly stronger braking system and front suspension system.
