High-riding Ford Excursion Looks like Super-cheap Fun

Ford Excursion

Whether you buy it to daily to use it as a weekend trail toy, this clean Excursion seems like a sound investment.

Back when Ford was still cranking out brand new Excursion models off its assembly line, the world’s largest SUV was going for good money. Nothing like today’s mega buck ultra-luxury trucks, of course. But it was possible to option a four-wheel drive ’03 Excursion like this Eddie Bauer-trimmed example all the way up to almost $50k. But now that this V10-powered bad boy has some miles on it, it’s going super cheap right here in the FTE Marketplace.

How cheap, you ask? Well, how about $5,500? That’s pennies on the dollar, folks. And it’s a whole lot of truck for that kind of money. Sure, it’s got 185,000 miles on the clock. But these V10s are known for being pretty solid and reliable, and this one reportedly runs great. It also comes with service records for at least the last eight years, so it’s obviously been taken care of.

So for a small outlay of cash, you’re getting a massive, pretty much fully loaded SUV capable of hauling or going just about anywhere. The suspension of this Excursion has also been upgraded with some ProComp F-250 springs and Rancho 9000 shocks. The exterior looks very clean as well, with no obvious damage to the naked eye.

Inside, things are pretty clean as well. There’s the typical wear on the side bolster of the driver’s seat, something you see in every leather-equipped truck with miles on it. It’s fixable if you really care to do so.

Otherwise, we’d just buy this bad boy and drive it around. Maybe give it a lift and use it as a weekend trail toy. Heck, you could even daily it if you don’t mind paying for gas. And that’s what we call a sound return on a meager investment!
