My '03 Excursion is great towing vehicle
By RV Guy on


2004 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


I bought a 2003 Excursion with the
optional diesel engine and it pulls my
35' travel trailer like there's nothing
behind it! The gas mileage with the
diesel engine is better than I got with
the 2002 Chevy Suburban (Gas engine) I
traded in on it. One complaint is that
there is not an optional power sunroof
available and an aftermarket one is out
of the question since the back A/C and
heater vents are located towards the
middle of the vehicle making the
installation of a power sunroof not
possible. The "back-up" warning
signals are wonderful as are the pull
out trailer towing mirrors.

Best Features

The seats are very comfortable, more so than the Chevy Suburban this vehicle replaced. The gas mileage (with the optional diesel engine) is about 17-20 mgp, upper range being highway mileage. This is slightly better than with the '02 Suburban I had.

Worst Features

I was disappointed that the radio antenna scraped the molding at the upper part of the garage everytime I pulled in or backed out. I ended up getting a shorter one from an auto parts store myself and replacing it.
