Does size matter? If you have a practical need for the largest sport-utility vehicle of its kind with mammoth hauling and towing capacities, you may want to consider this XXL-sized SUV. The rest of humanity will likely consider it a politically incorrect behemoth, however. While its long-term survival at Ford is in question, the Excursion continues for 2005 with new jeweled headlamps, revised grille and bumpers, updated wheels and assorted new exterior color schemes. As before, power comes from either a 5.4-liter V-8 engine, or a 6.8-liter V-10, mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox. A long list of available features includes third-row seating, adjustable gas and brake pedals, and a back-seat DVD entertainment system.
