okay gonna bring this one back up as my wife is set on an Excursion. She's been looking lately:miff:
V10 or Powerstroke. It will sit most of the time so gas mileage isn't really a concern.. I've been looking and to get a 7.3L Ex under $20k it has over a 100k and doesn't have some options my wife wants like leather etc. But I can find a newer V10 loaded with 50k miles for around $15-16K. I like the less miles and more options.....plus the cheaper price.
Of course the one my wife wants is an '04 Limited with 6.0L PS, quad seating, DVD player, backup sensor, etc......damn thing is $35k. Plus I don't want a 6.0L PS. I'm gonna keep looking for 7.3L PS to see what I find with more options and good pricing. My wife is set on a diesel....trying to change her mind
