Great Vehicle. — I can not complain with mine having seating for 8 and being able to hold as much as a regular SUV cargo area, the fuel economy is outstanding, I am getting 30 MPG Highway, yes, it is a diesel, but I can not complain, I only fill it up once a month, it handles quite well, it looks good on both the inside and the outside, it is a great vehicle for going on ski trips, vacations, RVing, or whatever you need to do, it is remarkably agile and other than a few run of the mill issues, everything on the vehicle is working like a dream.

Got To Get One If U Dont Have One!!!! — This SUV is the top of the line in Land yachts. The Electra 225 started it and the Ford Excursion redefined it!!! The thing i really love about my truck is the space had a gmc suburban before the ford and i know the troubles chevy put out in those suv's. As far as gas the in town is about 11.3 and the hwy gets up to about 14. I can do everything i need with this SUV the only thing i wish it had was the power folding 3rd row seat.

Pros

Fit 8 people comfortably (I would say even better than the Suburban), tons of cargo space.

Cons

Big, ugly and handled like crap. Inside felt plasticky and cheap.  Gas mileage is the worst I've ever seen.

Avoid, Go Get A Suburban Instead — Had it for 2 months and was glad to be rid of it. Terrible handling, horrible gas mileage and poorly built.

Nice And Roomy — With two tall teenage son's it was a necessity to have a larger vehicle. Plus my husband loves the "get-up-n-go" that it has with the V-10. But the gas range could be better in today's economy.

Beast — Wish I could afford to buy a newer vehicle. Besides being big enough to hold my family, it drains our family's funds but we have to have it to get around without taking two other smaller vehicles. The big engine sucks gas and costs an arm and a leg to maintain.

Pros

Great big suv for those large families. Tons of elbow room. Its a tank and you feel truly safe.

Cons

Takes tons of fuel and blows right through it. Turning or making u turns is horrible. You need plenty of space to stop one of these too.

Great Vehicle For A Growing Or Active Family — You can personalize your excursion with all kinds of after maket things. She pulls and is tough as you can get in a suv. Her engine is almost bullet proof with all the wear these older cars get. For being 14 old they seem brand new with little or no problems It seats 8 with more than enough leg room. You can pack for days with all the cargo space in the back and then you still have the roof rack too. would definitely buy this again.

Worth Every Penny! — the 5.4 liter...has blown three plugs....found out its very common...But ford wont recall this engine cause it is in millions of cars....there are even websites griping about this issue... i love this truck but DO NOT BUY THE 5.4.....this truck is STILL worth every penny.

Pros

Very reliable, very big, very strong.. everything you want and expect from the largest suv in the market.

Cons

If you are even looking at this beast, fuel consumption shouldn't be an issue.

I Love My Excursion. So Much So, That If I Don't Sell It.. I'm Completely Happy Keeping It Forever. — The only thing I don't like about this truck is it is very hard reaching the back spark plugs.. the engine is HUGE and goes on forever Ü. Can haul anything, anywhere... As a basketball coach and a boater - I've had no problems carrying things .

Love The Room And Crash Ratings! — Good quality, cheap cost of ownership any one can do repairs if needed. Low theft risk. Good safety ratings. Like the truck like look, when you see one on the road they are often mistaken for a F250 or F350 from the front.
