Talk about a Barn Find

I'd love to get my hands on one of these.

You’d be surprised, though. The Triton V10 in the Excursion produced only 310 HP and 458 ft-lb of torque. Not bad, but pales compared to today’s engines.

And the Ford 6.0 Diesel was a problematic engine.

Although it would be cool to have a “new” 15 year old SUV.

We have a 2002 F250 Super Duty pick up as our tow vehicle. Same chassis and drive train as the Excursion (more or less). Rides a bit rough but love it as a TV.

I thought it was a good story and wanted to share. I do wonder why the tires still appear to be fully inflated after 15 years.

Stay Safe gang.

Jim
