Review

Great truck. Hauls just about anything. Bought it to haul an Airstream, 5K, 14 MPG highway (60 mph). Pulls a 6k boat out of the water no problem. Fit a 4x8 stack of plywood in the rear. Plenty of room to sleep in the back, plus camping supplies. I get 14 city, 20 highway. Bought it new, love it. Seats 8, and luggage. Yes, it's a diesel, can't choose from drop down.

Love my new old Excursion. Always wanted one, and here we have a 15 year old vehicle that drives like brand new. Tough and versatile.

Review

Unbelievable, but other than regular maintenance such as oil changes, battery, tire and wiper replacement there has never been one thing wrong with this truck.
Just replaced the fuel pump, had it completely checked out, everything in perfect condition.
Have loved this truck since the first day.
Okay, lousy mileage, but use it for hauling and long distance trips.
Purchased 3 days before 9/11 - still own with no intention of replacing.

This truck far surpasses the Suburban by having a better turning base, more pick up and much more comfortable.
A true Texas truck!!!


Best Features

Great turning base, very comfortable. Can load just about anything, Lots of room and comfortable seating.


Worst Features

Better mileage would be nice especially with today's gas prices.

Review

This is my first truck/suv and i wanted one that was huge well the excursion is certainly huge. On road trips you have to stop every so often because its so comfortable you keep nodding off while driving but yet its still tough and rugged.reliability is good only thing i replaced was ac compressor and running board light sockets.Gas milage can be as high as 14 on a constant long stretch highway but normally around 11 combined highway and city but well worth the gas milage.Winter roads are no challenge for the excursion .Only other complaints are when i hand wax it or need to scrap ice off the winsheild you will need a small ladder or step stool but well worth it i will keep it forever !!!!!!


Best Features

heated seats ,heated mirrors


Worst Features

nothing its fine the way it is

Review

We picked up our new 7.3L Diesel Excursion for around $35k. We droveit home and the dealer had to come pick it up because it blew coolant out of a heater hose that didnt have a clamp.Door locks and door ajar lights started acting up just out of warranty. engine blew an oil plug at 88k which nearly cost the engine. Now the transmission is on the way out at 134,000. I had bought 5 Fords in 8 years and I refused to buy another one after this. I also had a SuperDuty F250 with the rotor problems, the door ajar problem and the door lock problems. I can understand somethings can go wrong but their customer service was never helpful.


Best Features

If you hit something, you win. Nine people fit comfortably.


Worst Features

They already made the best improvement- they stopped making them.
