What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Ford Excursion MPG

Ford Excursion Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2004 4dr SUV, ext. turbocharged 325hp 6.0L V8 Diesel 5-sp automatic RWD This is a 6,200 pound vehicle that I need for my work. I need to haul long items and occassionally tow heavy trailers for work. It is a diesel and for 136,000 miles I have averaged 17.8 mpg. If this were gasoline powered I would be 8-10 mpg, or less.
Ford Excursion Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2005 4dr SUV, ext. 310-horsepower 6.8L V10
4-speed automatic RWD
I know what it got. It is efficient for what it is. Compared to their smaller, less capable vehicles it gets "bad" mileage. However, for a 8K lbs truck with a non-aerodynamic design the average mileage of 13.5 (E10) is acceptable.
