Very Impressed With Looks And Handling And Power When Pulling Loads. — Vehicle still is very impressive in looks all though its 13 years old. Interior features are very user friendly. The V10 power plant has all the power one would need while pulling loads. Surprising the gas mileage is not bad for a vehicle of this size and weight. Average MPG while on the road is around 13-14. Only issue we have had is with front suspension. I replace all shocks but we are still experiencing rough jarring when hitting front road pumps.

Family Car — Great car from extreme use to day to day use. Does good in tough weather and is very safe on the road. Good off roaring, great for taking big cargo around or a lot of people. Can tow or carry a bike rack in the back.

Love It. — The reason I purchased this Expedition was for family trips and daily driving. Researching the 7.3L Powerstoke engine, it was, and still is, the hardest working longest lasting engine Ford produced. It is great for road trips and around town as the fuel economy is excellent for a vehicle this size.

Monster — Big and fast, Lots of room inside. Built to last. Great engine and mechanics. Withstands a lot of abuse. Will pull a house down. Will tow anything. Comes with lots of toys to play with. Electid 4wd. Drives alike a dream and will demand respect on the road.

American brute force.

Ok — It's huge and now fast. Is got a banks: turbo wheel,4'' exhaust(straight piped),transcomander, and big head waste gate. Along with a banks intercooler. DP-tuner 16 position chip piggy-backed with a banks six-gun tunner. I love this truck, it's loud and powerful and will roll coal untill the loud pedal is released.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Bottom Line? If This Refers To Selling It, I'm Not. — Well it's murdered out, lifted 6", on 37 inch tires. It's a great truck with the 7.3 liter diesel in it, got a chip, intake, and exhaust on it, and it moves plenty for my taste. In those words, I love it = ].

Love It — I love everything about my Excursion. I have owned it for 5 years and today I am buying another one. I will keep my old on with the 5.4 for a few months. The new one will have the 7.3 Diesel. By the way I looked at a Yukon Denali, it looks good but is not half the vehicle and gets worse mileage 4 miles worse that the 5.4 and 9 miles worse than the diesel. Bet you wish you had one huh?

Excursion's Rock!! — I love this truck!! It's huge, but having this much room is addictive. The turning radius kinda sucks, but everything else is awesome. Power is great, V-10 will pull just about anything. It's great to finally be able to have a huge sub box, and carry 4 or 5 people! Gas milage sucks, parking is a pain, but I still love it!!
