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


Several trips from Lansing, MI, to Portland, ME nonstop, one driver and one tank of diesel (with a tailwind). Visibility and leather driver seat make driving a pleasure. I weigh 240# and get a backache driving luxury sedans in $40-50k range in half the time. Rock solid diesel never misses a tick at 98000 miles (but would not consider gas). Pulls better than my F350 crew long box diesel because it weighs more. Biggest problem is non support attitude of FMC. No satisfaction on missing rear sway bar, 2002 only. If Toyota or Nissan built a diesel SUV, bye-bye Ford.

Best Features

Diesel, front seats, visibility, weight, power.

Worst Features

7.3 diesel capable of more with better electronics. Will wait and see on smaller diesel. FMC left off rear sway bar on 2002 only and this degrades tracking. No explanation or retrofit available.
