The Exclusion is just that, won't fit in standard garages and is fuel thirsty. The GM 's are better hands down.

Besides, we make all the seats for the GMT 900's.

I've driven to LA a few times in my Excursion and parking it is a pain. On the plus side found if I toss the key's to the valet at hotels they leave it parked upfront..........

the Ex tows much better.

The Ex looks like a man's truck. The Sub says "soccer mom".

The inside of the Ex is HUGE.

The Sub does have the edge in unloaded ride & maneuverability.

The Sub might have a chance if it were offered with the diesel.

Smoked 2 trannys in my Denali with my 29 beak.... Excursion w/6.0 PSD tows Slim better than I ever imagined. Just got back from Destin in 11 hours flat. 80 to 85 the whole way and not one moment of sway. Trailer is balanced perfectly now and love the truck. At first it was all over the place and it turned out to be a tire pressure issue. Towed a 38 Fountain a few times in Destin and it felt like it wasnt there.Still feels more like a truck but it tows and hauls lights out

Some of the pics you guys have are surprising me (in a good way!) What's the max tow rating on the Excursion?

Ahh, yeah...

Only Excursion you will find is a used one or leftover new one- 2006.

The diesel Yukon XL is a couple years out- maybe 2008-9.
