Awesome! — I can't say enough about the pulling power these things have, not that I haul a lot but when I do power isn't an issue. Probably the most reliable rig I've ever owned, never had to do anything other than put fuel and change oil.

Lots of room for the family!

Powerful! — The best thing I like about this SUV is the power and surprisingly decent mileage (about 15-16 mpg). Second is the looks people give when they see it in person,not to mention the positive comments on how nice it looks. I've had a lot of different lifted trucks and this one is definitely at the top of the list!

Pros

Very reliable car, its a diesel.  The maintenance costs are high, I use only the best fluids for maintenance.  Been great for towing and my 3 kid family.

Cons

Cost of fuel, gas (diesel) mileage, routine maintenance costs.

Great Large Family Car — Other than expensive fluid changes and tires and low gas mileage this car has been solid and served our family well. I would recommend this car to a friend especially if towing a trailer. This is a big car with a big engine but if you take care of it you should get 300,000 miles out of it.

Nice large suv with a family of 7.

4wd hubs have to be repaired fairly freq, fuel mileage is not what I thought it would be.

Great Overall Family Car With Alot Of Space — I have owned my excursion for about a year. The Diesel 7.3 is a great motor with the bullydog system and K&N filter on it. Other than it steers like a ford truck, this truck is great overall. some minor problems with the 4wd. I also plow with it and does great.

The excursion has more power and interior space than one could ask for.

Awesome - I Will Never Get Rid Of My Excursion. — I added the banks package, rear air bags, a full duty air compressor with spare tank and lifted the front end 3 inches. I just love vacationing, camping and road trips in the excursion. Soon I am going to be removing internal door and side panels and add sound deadening materials.

Pros

Will tow or haul just about anything, and rarely slips a tire pulling 10,000 of boat and trailer out of the water.

Cons

Diesel fuel in my neighborhood costs more than premium, and they don't make 'em anymore.

Awesome Mobile Office. — I bought this truck with 25,000 miles on her, and now have 225,000 miles on it. It has given me zero problems, I run 35" tires, and tow relatively heavy stuff all the time. When I run into someone in trouble, she's always been ready to help. We even up-righted a turned over truck and put it back up on the road. It's awesome with all the comforts of home and more!

Pros

Huge 7.3L Diesel Engine.
Huge Interior/ storage space.
Heated leather seats.

Cons

Electronic toys are busted.  6 disc changer that is now a cd prison and a drop down monitor that doesn't work either.  That is ok because it was attached to a vhs player.  Would've been cool in the 80's.

Daddy's Family War Wagon — I thouroughly enjoy my Excursion. It is perfect for my family of six. I love the fact the there is 8000 pounds of truck around my wife and four children. The third row is a real bench and there is still room behind it for a stroller and groceries. It is great for family vacations. A comfortable ride that can go anywhere and haul everything. The power of the 7.3 diesel is ridiculous. The fuel economy is comprable to most minivans yet it looks and sounds sooooo much cooler. It handles well for the beast it is and the power makes it fun to drive. I love to hammer down on the freeway, spool up the turbo and blast off. My wife, doens't enjoy it as much... well that is unless she is doing it.

Amazing Full Power High Performing Vehicle — I love this Excursion. It is superior for transporting family and towing a trailer or boat. It has looks, leather, and it's Impressive. Only drawback is low gas mileage. Makes you feel invincible on the road. Getting behind the wheel of this SUV give you that feeling of POWER!
