2001 Ford Excursion Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 11 reviews
The 2001 Ford Excursion built on the successes of its freshman year with very few changes. Two trims were available for the 2001 Excursion: XLT and Limited; the Limited's luxury accoutrements now included fog lamps and mirrors with built-in electric turn signal lights, as well as the heated mirrors, leather upholstery, and other goodies.
Buyers could choose rear-wheel drive, or optional four-wheel drive. The Excursion's 4WD option was marketed for suburban safety, though, rather than for all-terrain versatility; you weren't likely to want to take this landwhale off-road.
When it came to roominess, the Excursion gave new meaning to the 'full-size' in 'full-size SUV'. Its overall length was 226.7 inches, with a width of 79.9 inches. The Excursion seated 9, with ample legroom and headroom for all, and had a cargo capacity of 146.4 cubic feet.
In addition to its size, the Ford Excursion offered plenty of power. The Excursion came off the line with a 5.4 liter overhead cam V-8 that delivered 255 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque; buyers could upgrade to a 6.8 liter overhead cam V10, with 310 horsepower and 425 lb.-ft. of torque, or go for even more power with a V-8 turbodiesel option.
The new V-8 turbodiesel was another of the 2001 changes to the Excursion. A 7.3 single overhead cam putting out 250 horsepower and 505 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine was fit for a monster. Or an Excursion?
