2005 Ford Excursion Reviews

We have 4 children and often carrying even more than that!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Excursion!!! We use it for everything! We haul furniture, kids, pull our 30 ft camper and more. We own the 2005 and would love it if they started making them again!! It was our best purchase!!
This is the best vehicle, I have ever owned. There's alot of room in all 3 seating areas and is great for long trips. I have the 6.0 turbo diesel and it gets around 15-16 mpg in the city. I owned a 2002 Excursion V10 and that was also a good car, but could never compare to the "Limited" model with the diesel engine. It's too bad they don't make them anymore
