2005 Ford Excursion XLS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


After towing a 6,000 lb travel trailer
for 3,000 miles with a Lincoln
Aviator, I decided it was time for a
real truck.

The Powerstroke (Intl) diesel is
getting 22MPG highway, 14.5 with the
trailer - as compared to 14 and 7.5
with the Aviator. A HUGE difference -
plus diesel is cheaper than premium.

The 44 gallon tank gives us an 800
mile range, while the Aviator had a
180 mile range.

The Limited has the same options as
the Aviator, except for the cooled
seats and navigation.

The space is fabulous and although the
size takes getting used to, it isn't
that big if a deal.

I put an $1800 Banks Six Gun PowerPack
on it that boosts the HP to 500 and
torque to 800 - amazing power
