I have a 2004 Excursion Limited 4x4 w/6.0L Powerstoke Diesel and the new (for 2004) 5 speed TorqShift automatic transmission and it is great. GM's Suburban/Yukon XL 2500 series can't even compare. My wife drives the thing more than I do. If you want the ultimate diesel powered SUV on the planet the choice is clear, Ford Excursion.

Did Ford put all the good stuff from the 05 pickups on the Excursion?

I was told the Suburban was going to be redesigned in 06 and it was going to have the diesel. I don't want to wait until 07 for it. If I had to wait I would get the Ford ordered.

Close to cutting a deal here. Thanks to Mat Raymond for his help today! I hope it turns out to be as great a truck for me as it is to all you owners. If I do buy it, it will be pimped out so I will post pics. Thanks again!

Dont know, this will be my first Ford ever. The dash is very plain and the ride is very truck like. The Suburban I heard will not be out until 2007 at the earliest if at all. There has been talk of scrapping it totally. It is being redesigned for 2006 but no Duramax. The pic I saw of the 2006 Tahoe looked alot like the Toyota Tundra Who knows with my luck it will come out next week. The new Excursion drove good but more truck like than the Suburban and I have eaten trannys with my Denali and getting sick of it. I will be towing for a while before we build on the lake down here so it is time for a pull vehicle. The rating is 11K on the Ford and only 8000 on the Denali.... and they must have towed only on flat surfaces to get that rating. It struggles pretty good with my boat... especially on the hills. I know GLH tows like 47,000 pounds with his so the Ford must be good. The Denali has been a GREAT truck but the tow part coupled with more ground clearance has me just about sold on the Ford. I have them down to 45,200 on it plus I have a grand more if I use Ford Credit. so 44,200 at the worst right now...

Oh yeah.. plus the wheels, tires, brush bar, light bar and BADA$$ thumpin system.. so I will be at 60K no matter what
Then the Denali will be my third vehicle... actually fourth after the boat... anyone need a slightly used Denali? It comes with the optional zipper on the tranny housing

And yes I have heard differently but my dealer said it was the last year for the Excursion, 2005. He said they only sell substantial amounts of them in the horse country of KY, CA, CO, and TX. Not enough to mass produce them.
