Windning down the Dragon in TN.

"Without a doubt an automotive anomaly. Who TODAY makes an SUV that weighs 8K, get 20mpg's, can tow 11K+ (stock), seats 8 adults and is wanted more and more each day by those in the know? The original, the King... 7.3, Ford Excursion 4x4, PSD. In the world of "horse"-power it would be the Clydesdale. Wanna go fast? get a Mustang... wanna pull sumtin'? get the Excursion. The Ex is never gonna have parking lot maneuverability, would not be my first choice for daily in town commutes, Ford did not design it with good road manners, but with some TLC and a few after market additions I would describe the Ex as enjoyable to drive as any full size SUV. The Ex is a long-haul hauler kinda like what a semi does. Built to go straight and pull. If your a road warrior and your bedroom is enclosed in aluminum on wheels... walk to the auto-alter and get hitched. ... and used ones ain't cheap."

"Selling because we are going land cruising in a new RV. I will be crying when this car goes. It is awesome. Can't say enough good things about it. Many times my husband has offered me a new car, but I will miss this car forever."

"This is my favorite vehicle ever. I'm not sure why Ford discontinued such a great SUV. I have done countless softball tournament trips in comfort with decent fuel mileage and plenty of room for friends and gear. I also use it regularly to pull my 4 horse trailer. Most recently did a 6,000 mile road trip taking my daughter to college. We had it loaded to the hilt, with dorm supplies and 5 people. It ran great and it was nice to be able to watch some movies along the way. Plenty of power, plenty of room, plenty comfortable."

"We have six children. we have a 31' Air-stream. We have traveled to Reno, Nevada, Columbia Missouri, Tempe Az, Jerome Arizona in snow, Denver Colorado area Thanks giving, Nainamo Canada, Mountains, desert. It drives very well. Interstate speeds best, We live in rural area with windy two lane roads. All service has been from dealership of purchase."

"My only concern with this vehicle is , what to replace her with when the time comes. Purchased the excursion new in 2000 hoping to get 8 high mileage years out of it, so I'm pleased. Great safe family cruiser , excellent tow vehicle and all around road dog."
