Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Substantial passenger and cargo capacity, impressive towing ability, diesel engine option.
  • Unwieldy size, trucklike driving characteristics, poor fuel economy, high sticker price.

Unless you really need the Excursion's towing ability and huge interior, you're better off with the smaller Expedition or GM's Suburban/Yukon XL twins.

2005 Highlights

Alloy wheels replace chrome steel wheels on XLS models, and the front fascia appearance has been slightly revised.

My Toradore Review
BK,11/11/2004
XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
My experience with the Excursion is that it is extremely reliable. The only negative thing that I have to say about it is the interior design, whereby the spare tire is inside. I'm sure it could have been placed outside like most other vehicles. That would enable us to utilize that "dead space" which is created by having a tire inside of the vehicle. As for fuel economy, I've never seen a rating, but we average anywhere between 18-21 mph on the highway, and 16-18 in the city! I think that is awesome for a vehicle of its size. Thanks for your time.

Heavy 8,045 pounds on Truck Scales
Captcapo,09/27/2018
XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
I bought this 2005 vehicle new in 2004. I have driven it back and forth from FL to MA and back again hauling a trailer or a boat. The power this engine puts out is fantastic. The mileage around home is about 17mpg and over the road about 19 mpg. Pulling the trailer or boat it dropped to 12 mpg. It is comfortable to drive. The only negative I would have is that the steering circumference is not great due to the long wheel base. It holds the road very well. You are sitting up over the roofs of most cars so you never get the boxed in feeling if you are in traffic. Since you are higher than most traffic you can foresee events happening ahead of you and take evasive action if necessary. The vehicle was built off the Ford 250 truck frame. The shift into four wheel drive on the fly serves you well in slippery conditions. Since you have a lot of steel around you and are higher up than most vehicles, I believe you are safer than the small vehicles ("vegetable makers") that the auto industry is trying to shove down our throats. If Ford still made this vehicle I would buy another one for my wife in a heart beat.

THE BIG REPLACEMENT
Rick Salinas,07/22/2009
Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)
I had wanted an Excursion since they first arived on the showroom floor. I finally got one nine years later, as a replacement for two vehicles. It now takes the place of my Lincoln Town Car and a 4wd 15 passenger van, which was a hard thing to do. I wanted all the luxury inside an suv just like my Lincoln Cartier, the room, rugedness,and 4wd go anywhere of my van. It has replaced them both with flying colors, and made me very happy. It is very comfortable and ride hieght is excelent. I use this vehicle for work, family and play.

Love these Trucks
Patrick,06/24/2005
Eddie Bauer 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl Turbodiesel 5A)
My 2004 is the second Excursion we have owned. We tow a 10,000 lb. trailer and it has no problem handling the trailer. We get 21 mpg on the interstate when not towing, and 11 mpg when towing. Factoring what we tow, 6 adults, and gear, we are getting fantastic mileage. Hope Ford continues to build this great truck.

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Ford Excursion?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
