About Ford Excursion
Ford Excursion is a heavy-duty, extended-length sport utility vehicle manufactured by Ford Motor Company from 1999 to 2005. The first Ford Excursion was introduced for the 2000 model year. It was marketed mainly for North America, though it is still on sale in 2006 for Mexico. Although as a SUV without a very long history, it has received some criticisms such as the "Exxon Valdez Award" for environmental destruction.
The Excursion was produced at a time of mounting concern over global warming, air pollution, and oil exploration in fragile wilderness areas, as a nine-passenger gas-guzzling SUV, it did have a bad effect in environment. The Ford Excursion was built based on the Ford F-250 Super Duty line of pickup trucks, so it became the longest and heaviest SUV ever produced by Ford Motor Company. There were mainly two trim levels available: XL, XLT and Limited. It had either gasoline or diesel engine. Gasoline engine options included 5.4 L 255 hp SOHC 2V V8, 6.8 L 310 hp SOHC 2V V10 engines mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission, while diesel engines were 7.3 L 250 hp OHV V8 turbo and 6.0 L 325 hp OHV 4V V8 turbo engines, which were fitted along with a 5-speed automatic transmission.
