    2002 Ford Excursion - Limited 7.3L Ultimate (430A) 4x4

    Pros: Diesel engine. Cost more in intial purchase - last longer & better fuel economy

    Cons: Arm rest on driver/passenger seat a bit short. Not long enough.

    Advice: Buy the diesel only. Do not waste your money on the gas engine unless you drive only short distances or are really rich.

    Excellent. Loved the rear sensors in backing up. A bit high to get in but the running boards help.

    2002 Ford Excursion - Limited 5.4L Ultimate (330A) 4x2

    Pros: Powerstroke Diesel

    Cons: Pitch & Yaw when cornering at hwy. speed.

    Advice: Do NOT fail to get the tow mirrors. They are THE BEST mirrors on the market...

    Wanted the diesel for economy. Was afraid the V-8 wouldn't have enough power and from experience know the V-10 gets lousy mileage. Diesel adds about $ 3,000 to resale value. Gets 16-18 hwy mpg. and guessing 15 mpg in town. It's big, safe, and handles suprisingly well. Like ALL Sport Utes, it does have a problem with pitch and yaw. We got a 2x4 and I expected it to be as stable as my 4x4 F250. It's not! But it is quiet, comfortable and easy to push down the hwy. at 70+ mph. Good acceleration at hwy. speed for passing and not as hard to drive/park in town as you might have been told. Wheelbase is exactly the same as full size Super Duty pickups.

    2002 Ford Excursion - Limited 6.8L (400A) 4x4

    Pros: The way it handles

    Cons: That there are not seat warmers in the rear seats

    Advice: Make sure you get all the features you want the first time

    I have a 2000 model and I absolutly love it. Irregardless of if I am towing or not, the handling of the vehicle remains the same. It has a quite interior, can comfortable seat 8 people, and still have cargo space. I get awesome milage for a 4w drive rangeing from 14 mpg to 21 mpg, my average is about 16 since I generally have my foot in to it. Highway milage remains steady even at higher speeds. Great vehicle!

    2002 Ford Excursion - Limited 5.4L Ultimate (330A) 4x2

    Pros: controls on the steering wheel

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: It's a great family vehicle and is easy to manage.

    Love the way it handles. Have a diesel...quiet on the interior. Avg 18 miles per gallon on the highway and 14 in town. Better than we had hoped for. Easier to park than I imagined. Love rear sensing system-helps to protect that back bumper! Very comfortable for 2 adults/3 children to travel. Lots of storage space. Love the cupholders-10 of them! Enjoy the media system for cd's...don't have the entertainment pkg. The controls on the steering wheel are great!An all around great vehicle...we are greatly enjoying ours!
