2002 Ford Excursion SUV Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

WHAT A TRUCK. I will say that it is
worth it to go for the diesel engine.
not only is the fuel economy great
considering the size of the vehicle
but the sound is incredible! It gets
about the same mileage as my01
Cherokee. get the 4wd. it's handy in
the winter and itloods tough. Its
amazing in the snow. AMAZING! its more
comfortable and easier to drive than
expected. Diesel is typically cheaper
than gasoline. It is a little tough to
park. I'll get over it.small price to
pay. If you are thinking about buying
one DO IT! You wont regret it the
diesel has a standard 100k
warranty and everyone tells me that
the diesel willrun a half a million
miles.

2002 Ford Excursion SUV XLT 2WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my Excursion for over 2
years and so far no major problems. I
wish I had gotten the beeping bumper
because I did back into a pole. That
option is well worth it. The only
other problem I had is that someone
broke into the car on the driver's
side. Nothing was taken and since I
was not out there I am not sure if the
alarm went off or not.


Best Features

Over head air vents and extra cigarette lighter adapters.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage if possible. Automatic back seat instead of having to pull it at and put it somewhere when you need the extra room.

Review

We love our Excursion! We use it to tow
a boat as well as a horse trailer. This
is a great tow vehicle. Very comfortabe
on trips, it has a great ride on the
highway and has tons of power under the
hood!


Best Features

The purse hook,room for a crowd,ride and the power of the V10 under the hood.


Worst Features

Although, not the worst I've sat in the front seats could be a bit more comfortable.

Review

I have driven my diesel excursion for
71,000 trouble free miles. Used it
from around town to towing, etc. I
have towed 11,500 lbs from Sebrign, Fl
to NC with the cruise on. My wife even
drove!!

It has been reliable, inexpensive
vehicle to own. A little laborious to
use to run to the grocery store, but
if you are o the highway, it is a
great truck.

Pluses.
Doesn't hydroplane in the WORST
rainstorms, Great power
20+ MPG highway Good brakes for a
vehicle of this size
Handles ANY tagalong trailer you can
throw at it.
Good seating position

drawbacks:
Don't rush to get anywhere or you
could get into trouble
Probably could handle a little better.


Best Features

Diesel, crisp transmission, rear heat controls, rear vent windows, headlights (good light at night)


Worst Features

Technically? a little less weight could be managed. More sophisticated front and rear suspension would improve handling and ride.

Review

Comfortable, competent on road hauler.
V-10 gives great power, little
sacrifice to mileage.
MUST get 4X4 in snowbelt!! (not great
in RWD in snow)
Watch the parking garage heights!!
Not sporty, but swallows 8 people, plus
their stuff (Hurray for George Carlin
and "stuff")
Delivers what the Hummer H2 and
Suburban/Yukon XL promise


Best Features

V-10 and 4.11:1 Limited slip rear!!


Worst Features

Tighter turning radius
