Visit Ford for more information on the Ford Excursion.

The Eddie Bauer is a new addition to the Excursion family, giving the largest SUV in America an even more versatile lineup. Next to the Limited edition in terms of standard equipment, the Eddie Bauer loads on the comfort features and adds a healthy dose of refinement as well. The result is two brawny, full-size SUVs with excessive power and a noticeable sense of style.

Available Models
The Eddie Bauer and Limited editions are joined by XLT and XLT Premium editions, rounding out the model selection to a total of four. All models come with the standard performance and ruggedness inherent in the Excursion line.

Interior Features
Up to nine passengers will delight in the comfort of these top-line models. The Eddie Bauer offers, among other things, front automatic climate controls, leather upholstery, power-adjustable pedals and cruise control. The Limited adds heated front seats, driver-seat and pedal memory, steering-wheel climate and radio controls and an AM/FM radio with in-dash 6-disc CD changer.

Exterior Features
The Excursion is simply a massive vehicle. With a wheelbase of 137.1 inches, there is roominess everywhere. On the outside, the Excursion's confident look is as much a result of its size as it is styling. The new Eddie Bauer edition has an Arizona Beige grille insert and body-color grille surround, front and rear fascias in Arizona Beige and Eddie Bauer badging. Both the Eddie Bauer and Limited have fog lamps that improve visibility in inclement weather, while crystalline halogen headlamps provide excellent nighttime visibility.

Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations are both available with the Excursion. With two-wheel drive models, the standard engine is a powerful 5.4-liter V8 with 255 horsepower at 4500 rpm and 350 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm. Four-wheel drive models are equipped with a massive 6.8-liter V10 with 310 horsepower at 4250 rpm and 425 lb-ft of torque at 3250 rpm (optional on two-wheel drive models).

Also available is a 7.3-liter Turbodiesel V8 with 250 horsepower at 2600 rpm and 525 lb-ft of torque at 1600 rpm. However, later in the model year an improved diesel V8 will be offered. The new, cleaner 6.0-liter Power Stroke diesel and new five-speed TorqShift automatic transmission will combine to make a best-in-class 325 horsepower at 3300 rpm and 550 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm. It will offer up to 10 percent better fuel economy and 20 percent lower emissions.

Safety and Security
The heavy-duty construction of the Excursion is as big a safety factor as any. Other features include dual front airbags and reliable antilock 4-wheel disc brakes.
