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.

    6:45 It also takes up most of the visibility on the rear passenger side window, so the blind spot on that side would be kind of hard to see.

    I love those old Owners Manuals, they actually sounded like they were written by a human. They told you all the same stuff that the modern ones do, but they didn't sound nearly as robotic and corporate. A great example are the Manuals written by AMC in the '70s. They actually encouraged you to maintain the car yourself, instead of just taking it to the shop, for example telling you how to properly store the car for long periods of time (draining the tank or telling you to pour oil down the carb, yes they actually said that!). The entire Manuals were written in a down to earth tone, as if you were talking to a friend not a corporation. Sadly these things faded out in the late 90's.

    Doug, in case you wondered, a similar issue happened in the 90s up till the 00s where a company in Thailand called Thairung who would actually manufacture SUV versions of the Isuzu Pickup Truck, the SUV version has already been made officially by Isuzu as the Rodeo and in other markets as the Isuzu MU, but the Thairung SUVs (called the Grand Adventure and the Tripper) basically also have full size doors form the pickup trucks as seen with the Ford Excursion.

    I had a 1998 Mazda MPV sport edition in white and it's pretty comparable to this. I loved that car so much. It's a real shame my sister drove it one time not checking the guages and seeing the engine overheating for a while. It turned out the bottom radiator hose broke and all the coolant leaked out. Now it has an oil leak in the block and won't pass emissions. We sold it about 3 years ago at 120,000 miles.

    Growing up my family burned through two of these! Both v10 and we'd haul the whole family cross country towing a 2 ton boat! I eventually learned to drive in our 2005 limited. When prom rolled around my friends and I (lovingly calling it Olga) opted for the Excursion instead of the limo! This beast brings me tons of nostalgia.

I rode in one of these with both families and found them to be very comfortable. I remember back around 2005-2006 I was with one family when they gassed it up, and it took over $100 - this was shocking to me, who drove an Elantra at the time.

I can take an entire family and all their luggage to the airport and tow and extra trailer if needed that frees up another vehicle to make runs."

    Hilariously this is actually an SUV version of the Ford truck which Hank Hill from King of the Hill drives! He drove a Ford Ranger for the first few years of the show, but then there was an episode where the Ranger was dying, but Hank refused to get rid of it. Then Bobby tricked Hank into driving 40 miles to a used-truck dealership... and as soon as Hank found out, he left and started to go home, but soon his Ranger got stuck on a railroad crossing, and got hit by a freight train! So he ended up going back to the dealership and buying the used Super Duty truck (which would have only been about two years old at the time of the episode)

This sucker looks like one behemoth of a monstrosity. I feel like it epitomizes the statement “Hauling all 8 passengers and their luggage.” Not to mention the towing capacity added in. Heck!!! If you wanted to live dangerously you could ‘86 the spare and throw your mother-in-law back there with the luggage.
