Pros: "Powerful, roomy with a commanding view of the road"

Cons: "Hauling 7,000+ lbs kills economy"

"I purchased the Excursion in 2007 (used) predominantly for towing our 28 foot travel trailer. It exceeded my expectations by a mile. I couldn't even tell the trailer was behind me while towing it. The 6.8L V10 engine has more than enough power/torque to pull the 6,000 lb trailer. The vehicle is very spacious inside and quite comfortable for the long haul. Three row seating allows for up to 8 people to be taken along for the ride. The seating position is quite high which affords an excellent view of traffic all around. The only negative is, of course, the fuel mileage which is only 10 or 11 mpg around town and 14 on the highway. Towing the trailer reduces these numbers to 6 and 8 mpg respectively."

Powerful, well maintained, long range on fillup

All the way around

"This vehicle was purchased with 30K miles December 2000 and has been a family car ever since. It has been maintained well and complete records available. New tires, minimal body blemishes. Remove 3rd seat, fold 2nd forward to incredibly spacious interior. Pulls heavy loads like a cloud. Would be a great family car or conversion to a work vehicle. It's never let us down."

"I have owed three Excursions, all v10 Limited models with 4 wheel drive, all together I have driven them a total of approximately 500,000 miles, all trouble free as far as mechanical reliability, the only maintenance other than routine gas, oil, tires, etc was having to replace power door actuators on a 2000 model. other than that, no problems."

"I love my Excursion, it is my girl truck that met all my needs for my growing family. The gas is hurting me financially and the only reason I am trading it in. My family is now out on their own, so we don't get to use it much."

"Fantastic vehicle, decent mileage on the highway, and loads of power ( 7.3 deisel) handles like freight train at speed, but that's expected with nearly 8000 lbs. love it. Kills my previous vehicle in every way ( including gas mileage. 2000 suburban)"
