The ultimate 6.0 Diesel by Terry, Memphis Tennessee on 04/17/2008. Trim: 2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer 6.0L 4WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I tow a 33 ft travel trailer and I have not had any problems going up the hills of Tennessee. The 6.0 diesel has plenty of power. Plenty of room for the kids.
Cons: I can't believe the mirrors are not heated. I was on a trip and it was snowing/freezing rain. Every now and then while driving I would roll down the drivers window and clean the snow from the mirror. Other than this I have no complaints.
Overall review: Best Ford, I have ever owned!! I hate they dont make them any longer.

Ultimate SUV by Sweetie on 09/05/2007. Trim: 2004 Ford Excursion Limited 6.0L 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Very tough safe, comfortable vehicle, great milage and power, you sit high enough to see down the road ahead of the traffic.
Cons: They stopped making it, center and back seats need to be removed instead of folding down into the floor, the spare tire is stored inside. Not quite as many luxury features as the competition, like heated rear seats.
Overall review: This is the best vehicle we have ever owned, too bad it was discontinued, it should have only been offered with a diesel and not gas engine option, everyone I’ve talked to that has owned a diesel Excursion has loved it, although some people, not all have experienced poor mileage with the 6.0 was first introduced, fortunately not us. The reputation that it is such a large vehicle is a myth, I from time to time drive a Yukon at work and it doesn’t feel any larger to maneuver than it does.
