The Ford Excursion Is a Massive SUV With a Cult Following

The Ford Excursion is a massive SUV that's developed a cult following. Today I'm reviewing the Ford Excursion, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of this behemoth. I'll also review the Ford Excursion driving experience, and show you what it's like on the road -- and why so many people love the Ford Excursion.

    when I was a kid these interior features were top notch. you were the envy of all your friends if your parents had a vehicle like this. today just about every car in production has a touch screen and a bunch of bells and whistles, but these were some seriously premo features in the 90's and 2000's. my aunt had an expedition with a built in screen and VCR, my cousin and I would sit in the way back watching movies on long trips.

    I used to drive an excursion for work. It had an insane exhaust leak and the steering was so incredibly vague, I could never stop correcting the direction I was going on the road. It had 80,000 miles...

    If an American calls a car massive, you know it must be truly enormous (honestly, fat jokes aside, why are American cars so damn large?)

    LOL I remember being on the YMCA swim team as a kid, and one of the moms bought this absolute HOSS of a vehicle. We always loved when it was her turn to carpool us to practice, because holy cow it was luxurious. I remember geeking out about it so hard back then, upon learning it had a V10 engine, I remember exclaiming (knowing basically nothing about cars), "That's the same as a DODGE VIPER." Haha, the epitome of early aughts excess. Gotta love it.

    i think the closest to an excursion in the modern era would be the ram mega cab. seating for 6, full capabilities of a 3/4 ton pick up, rear entertainment system etc. 3rd gen megas came out in 2006 (first gen mega cabs) feel like they may have filled the void these behemoths left

    Just picked up a 2004 Limited for $500. Lady who was selling it was damn fast to get rid of it. Said it had a bad motor. All it needed was some new plugs and coils. Now I have a damn near perfectly running Excursion in damn fine shape for less than the cost of a single monthly payment of most newer SUV's. Living the dream.

    Love the excursion, had a eddy bauer bronco, then moved right on up from eddy bauer explorer, to eddy baurer expidition. Now i have the 2000 limited v10 & 2003 6.0 diesel eddy bauer excursion with eyes on my friends 7.3 diesel. Also with the third row removed and the second row seats folded flat, you can fit full 4’x8’ sheets of plywood in the back. The second row seats also recline. You have in a sense dual zone heat and air, the front cabin area has its on air / heat selection and where it comes from as well the rear has its own separately controlled air / heat and where it comes from like floor or vent. Also heres a vid of my 2003 eddy bauer 6.0 diesel performing a sled pull at my local fair. fititle.infodbNThgfzjnk?feature=share

    My parents had a first-gen Expedition and pulling that third row out was a bear. I can only imagine how tough it would be if you had to get it 2-3 extra feet to get it out of the car. Putting fold-flat seats in the second-gen was the best upgrade Ford made to the thing.

    This is small compared to a quad cab 4x4 dually. For all of you who don't know what that is.. It's a pick up that happens to be 1 meter larger in every dimension, 2 tons heavier and power by a massive diesel motor straight out of a commercial vehicle
