2005 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


Review

No other SUV on the market can tow more than 10,000 lbs. I needed the power of a diesel. I had an 03' Silverado Crew Cab Long Bed 4 x 4 with 8.1 liter gasoline motor with the 5 speed Allison Transmission. Empty netted 10 mpg around town. The Excursion gets 16 mpg.


Best Features

6.0 PowerStroke diesel.


Worst Features

More useful storage throughout.

2005 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)


Review

I just traded a 2000 Lexus RX300 for a 2005 Ford Excursion 4WD Limited. We drove through a very serious blizzard a few days ago. The Excursion on 4WD is unbeatable: comfortable, safe, and very fun to drive. My kids loved watching DVDs in the middle of the blizzard. In term of cargo space, this car is a dream.


Best Features

Cargo space, interior design, comfort.


Worst Features

None.

Review

Very reliable suv. Strong towing capabilities. great stopping power. Only suv with enough interior rear storage for the luggage of the maximum number of riders. That's a plus when traveling long distances. Lots of cup holders for passengers and very comfortable seating. Access to rear seats is readily accessible as well.


Best Features

Rear sensors and rear ac controls. Wide towing mirrors.


Worst Features

Retractable side steps.

Review

The power of this outstanding vehicle is unbelievable. I would recommend it to the world, and definitely over the Chev Suburban. Not to mention the incredible space! Too bad they stopped making it.


Best Features

The diesel engine, and the massive space capacity.


Worst Features

GPS would be nice, they could put that in the new Expedition.
