    2002 Ford Excursion Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Ford Excursion

    • five separate power points... 10 cupholders and more head-, shoulder- and legroom than an outdoor rock concert.

      - AutoWeek
    • never got stuck, never stopped swallowing more of our gear, and never refused the next challenge.

      - Car and Driver
    • entry into the rear of the truck is made easy with a split door, and flip up window.

      - Cars Everything
    • The V10 is a delightful engine. It produces 310 horsepower and can propel the Excursion along the Interstate at high rates of speed.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • It doesn't matter whether you're sitting in the front seats, second row or third row, all of the seats offer generous legroom, headroom and elbow room.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Ford's gargantuan sport-utility is a wonderfully stable platform for towing heavy trailers and can at the same time carry a truckload of fishermen.

    What reviewers liked least about the Ford Excursion

    • Unlike the Suburban, the Excursion offers only a part-time four-wheel-drive system, versus GM's optional full-time setup.

      - Automobile
    • ...just about the worst slalom speed we've ever recorded...

      - AutoWeek
    • ...stiff-legged over bumps, the structure quivers constantly... and it's the absent-minded professor [regarding] highway directional stability.

      - Car and Driver
    • Steering response is very vague, and taking sharp turns is not possible without causing an accident or an anxiety attack for the driver.

      - Cars Everything
    • too thirsty, and its size and design make for poor maneuverability and handling when compared with minivans and light-duty SUVs.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • The Excursion's steering has a vagueness that keeps it from being as easy and reassuring to drive.

      - The Car Connection

    Ford Excursion Comparisons

    • ...the Excursion is more than seven inches longer than the Chevrolet Suburban, the former SUV heavyweight.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • the first time the Suburban has had a serious competitor.

      - The Car Connection

    Best one-liner about the Ford Excursion

    • ...the environmentalists and the SUV haters let Ford have it! They nicknamed the fuel-guzzling, lane-hogging, overweight, oversized Excursion the 'Ford Valdez'.

      - Automobile
    • A wash and wax will require planning, and a stepstool.

      - Cars Everything
    • drives like a loaded U-Haul.

      - Edmunds.com
    • never mind that 85 percent of an Excursion still equals about 2.5 Honda Civics.
