Pros

V10 power, 4wd, Tows the boat perfectly!

Cons

gas mileage.....

55

2003 Excursion Eb 4x4 — The perfect SUV - tows the 10,000 lb boat, hauls the family safely and aggravates greenies...what's not to like? The V10 is a fantastic motor - shifts well with the 4R100 transmission. Gas mileage is a bit dismal - but the initial cost of diesel would have taken me 5 years of driving to even out. That's at 15mpg for the diesel and 11 for the V10 and 10k miles per year.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Biggest Suv Available — I love this truck. its one of the most powerful ive ever seen. although its strong, tough, and has leather interior, its fuel economy sucks. it only gets 11.2 miles per gallon. it has never given me any engine difficulty with its v10 315 horse power engine. its the best truck ive ever owned

Its Very Big! — I dont use this truck very much do to the cost of fuel. It has a V10 gas burner engine and is four wheel drive. Its great for hauling things and for its vast cargo space inside. Beautiful truck with custom wheels.

Pros

7.3L diesel engine? This baby can pull a fully loaded semi (YouTube it!!)
Amazing highway MPG - topped off and drove from South Jersey to Brooklyn and gas gauge still was still reading full.
Wireless backup cam makes it possible to park in spots you never imagined!
Engine quiets when going at higher speeds

Cons

Gas mileage in the city sucks, loud on quiet residential streets late at night.
Everyone knows a diesel can get expensive to maintain / repair.
Parking was almost impossible until I added on a wireless backup camera

I Like It, But Do Not Have An Entire Family And Will Hopefully Switch To A Pickup. — Well, overall the Excursion is a workhorse, used by many law enforcement, fire departments and Emergency Medical Service companies all over the US and Canada. I particularly enjoy the pickup, speed and towing capacity of this vehicle, however it has its cons as I have mentioned

Great Large Suv For Everything... — My only gripe is that Ford stopped making them. It is a great vehicle, and the words it won't fit doesn't happen often. Toodles around town fine and safe because nobody wants to mess with it. A great car for a growing family.

Primary Use: Family transportation

7.3l Diesel Is To Die For!!! — Loved it put almost 200K miles on it without any problems. Only complaint was interior parts fell off, before the truck itself ever had any problems
