I own a 2004 Ford Excursion Limited 4x4 V10. It is not a daily driver as it would be too expensive to drive that much. And its not much fun to park. It is my wife's "grocery-getter". It gets on average 12 mpg. Hwy is a little better, but not much. I do take it on long trips up and down the east coast with our 4 kids. They absolutely love it. It has space enough for the kids, their stuff, our stuff, and our two big dogs.
If you are expecting to drive this vehicle like a car, you will be disappointed. It has "play" in the steering wheel and so takes a little to get used to. It also takes a bit to stop it. So tailgating is not an option unless you want a ticket for rear-ending someone. And of course cornering is not spectacular - its a truck, not a car. If you realize you are driving the largest SUV on the planet and drive like it, then you will love this truck.
If space and comfort is what you want, then this truck is for you. If you need to drive something daily, this is probably not the vehicle for you.
Pros: 4x4, interior room, rear air, fullsize trunk area, third row seat, view of the road, comfort, huge 44 gal gas tank, tons of aftermarket parts since its based on the F250, compliments from friends and strangers alike.
Cons: gas mileage, turning radius, having to completely remove the third row seat if not needed.
