With a tough-looking appearance equally matched by performance,
the new 2002 Ford Excursion SUV is poised to cause the competition
a lot of grief this year. This year, it offers a whole new
array of colors, plus plenty of new features and benefits
to keep even the most discriminating customers happy.
Arriving on the market this year are two models
- the 2002 Ford Excursion XLT and the 2002 Ford Excursion
Limited - both able to conquer heavy-duty demands, and increased
towing and cargo requirements. Three engine sizes are available,
each with impressive statistics.
Although the 2002 Ford Excursion is a rugged
machine, passengers are greeted to a spacious and comfortable
interior that sports a six-way power passenger's seat (XLT
Limited and Premium), a standard overhead console, handy
cargo net, and a floor console (standard on Limited, optional
The seating capacity is great for those with high demands
in that department; nine adults can be accommodated in the
well-appointed cabin. For entertaining your crowd, you may
opt for a six-CD player or rear seat entertainment system
that includes a DVD player and outputs for games and controls
- all available on the XLT Premium and Limited models.
On the Excursion Limited models, an overhead console includes
auxiliary air conditioning controls and other handy amenities.
A cargo net is standard.
The 2002 Ford Excursion Limited makes an impression
with bodyside classing and chrome bumpers; standard chrome
steel wheels and platinum bodyside cladding are sported
by the XLT. The roof rack can accommodate up to 200 lbs
The Excursion's three engines are as follows:
5.4-litre Triton V8 (2WD models), 6.8-litre Triton V10 engine
(standard on 4WD, optional on 2WD models), and an earth-shaking
6.8-litre Power Stroke turbo diesel V8 engine (optional
on all models). The standard transmission is four-speed
automatic, which enable the vehicle to tow up to 11,000
lbs when equipped properly. The automatic tow-haul feature
adjusts to changes in altitude, hills, or heavy loads.
The 2WD models feature a Twin I-beam front suspension,
while the 4WD models are equipped with the Monobeam and
leaf spring front suspension for a quiet ride.
Safety and Security
To minimize the effects of a crash with a small
vehicle, the Excursion is built with a BlockerBeam front
bumper under ride protection feature. Inside, each vehicle
comes with standards such as a driver depowered air bag,
passenger depowered air bag, three-point seatbelts, child
safety locks, and child seat tethers and anchors. The vehicle
is bolstered with crumple zones and side impact door beams,
and a remote keyless entry system with interior light activator
comes as a standard.
