From Ford press: Excursion is Ford's largest sport utility vehicle and the only vehicle in the segment to offer a diesel engine - Ford's 6.0-liter Power Stroke™ diesel, with the most power and torque in the segment.
Excursion's three rows seat up to nine adults, while both interior volume and interior space are best-in-class. Excursion continues to offer customers outstanding room for both people and cargo, enhanced towing capacity. Available in XLS, XLT, Eddie Bauer and Limited trims, Excursion offers a variety of convenient features.
The Excursion is produced with the F-Series Super Duty pickup in Louisville, Ky. Excursion is powered by a choice of three engines and can tow up to 11,000 pounds when properly equipped.
The 5.4-liter SOHC Triton™ V-8 engine is standard on two-wheel-drive models and produces 255 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
The 6.8-liter SOHC Triton™ V-10 engine, standard on the Eddie Bauer and Limited four-wheel-drive and optional on other models, offers 310 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque.
The 6.0-liter Power Stroke® V-8 engine is a direct-injection, 32-valve diesel with a cast-iron block and cylinder heads. Combined with a five-speed TorqShift™ automatic transmission, the diesel powertrain delivers 325 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque - both best in class.
The diesel powertrain offers a Tow-Haul Mode feature that, once activated, can help increase a driver's feeling of control when towing large loads up and down steep grades, automatically minimizing shifts and maximizing available torque.
