Overall:

The Ford Excursion with a Diesel motor is a solid vehicle to have for traveling and pulling a load.

Overall:

The two most important items to decide on are (1) which engine do you want / need, and (2) 4x4 or 2WD? The V8 gas engine should only be considered if youre not going to tow anything heavy (less than 5000 lbs) i.e. people only. That is why they had the V10 gas and the V8 Powerstoke Diesel options. Either of these can easily handle 10,000 lbs towing, with the big differences between them are maintenance costs (diesels more - 15 quarts oil) and fuel economy (gas 12 mpg - diesel 19 mpg). If youre into venturing off the asphalt path, 4x4 is a must. Note the Diesel engine models changed from the 7.3L to the 6.0L around 2002-2003. 6.0L can have head gasket issues if not bullet proofed. The 7.3L is legendary and priced accordingly.

Overall:

The next biggest vehicle out there is a Chevrolet suburban. The excursion is approximately 2 ft longer 6 in wider taller and carries 4x8 sheets of plywood without tipping them on their sides. Not to mention that it toes over 5,000 lb more than a Chevy suburban.if youre looking for a small vehicle this is not yet but if youre looking for a monster to carry gobs of people gobs of payload and carry or tow a massive trailer this is the vehicle

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive!

Cons: Parking spots too small

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!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of room for the family!

Cons: Parking this beast can sometimes be a challenge if you don't like to walk

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.

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 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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice large suv with a family of 7.

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

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.

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

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

Cons: I wish it had a 5th gear for a higher overdrive

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!

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

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.
