2003 Ford Excursion Reviews and Price
If you have a use-case for such a vehicle, there is nothing else made that can do exactly what this vehicle can do. We tow a 33 foot camper, and frequently when we travel with or without the camper we have four family members and two large dogs. Having the extra interior space vs. a pickup, even with a crew cab, is really helpful. The V10 is a solid engine, although it won’t get great mileage. All interstate driving can be as high as 16 mpg, though.
My mixed driving gets between 11.5 and 12 mpg. It’s not a vehicle for everyone, but if you need lots of interior space and the ability to tow a large travel trailer, then the Excursion gets the job done better than anything else. If you don’t need the space or the towing capacity, then there are lots of choices that can get better mileage and deliver a softer ride and be easier to park. For me, none of them do everything I need. If my camper was just a little smaller and lighter a 2500 Suburban or maybe some models of the Expedition could also have been a choice. They have the advantage of still being in production so newer models are available.
Excellent vehicle 325 horse power and 550 lbs torque at 2000 RPM‘s. This means telling my 9000 pound travel trailer at 2000 RPM‘s I am consistently at 70 miles an hour with no downshifting. The 6 L has a bad rap. If you educate yourself about the engine and know what to do to take care of the engine and monitoring you’ll easily get 400,000 miles out of it. On trips I consistently get 17 to 18 miles to the gallon when I’m not towing and average 11 towing my travel trailer fords future diesel motors the 6.4 and 6.7 L are unfortunately very poor quality.
