Triton V10 Limo: 2003 Ford Excursion XLT 4X4

The Ford Excursion was only sold for a single generation from 2000 through 2006. It was a full sized heavy duty Class 2 SUV built on Ford’s F250 Super Duty platform and a direct competitor to GM’s Suburban SUV. The Suburban survived the early 2000s gas price crisis and the 2008 carpocalypse, but the Excursion went into the history books and the used car lots around the planet. Today we’ve got an Excursion that isn’t just the mean (and not at all green) Triton V10 powered version, but it is also 4X4 and converted into a limousine setup.

From the seller:

THIS… is a 2003 Ford Excursion XLT 4×4, finished in white with a gray and black interior.

The odometer currently indicates approximately 101,100 miles.
This Excursion has been modified for limousine service, and features a number of changes including a cockpit/cabin partition with powered viewing porthole, custom rear “J” seating, a wet bar, an audio/video console with DVD player, Pioneer speakers, mood lighting, wood flooring, dual exhaust, and more.
The attached Carfax history report indicates no accidents or mileage discrepancies. It also shows this Excursion has been registered as a taxi vehicle since December 2002, indicating the limousine conversion was likely performed when the truck was new.
Equipment includes 16-inch wheels, class 4 towing provisions, a 44-gallon fuel tank, a roof rack with cross bars, leather upholstery, and more as detailed below.
Released for the 2000 model year, the Excursion still stands proud as the only series-produced SUV that manages to make a Chevrolet Suburban look a bit small-boned. It was based on the F-250 Super Duty pickup, as its front end suggested, so it could comfortably carry nine passengers and their gear while towing a Tahoe to Lake Tahoe. Production ended after the 2005 model year.
Power comes from a 6.8-liter “Triton” V10, which produces 310 horsepower and 425 lb-ft of torque. Output is sent to the rear or all four wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission and 2-speed transfer case with Control Trac Shift-on-the-Fly capability. Ford pegged the V10-powered Excursion’s maximum towing capacity at 10,000 pounds in 2000.
