Despite being on the market for a pretty short time, the original Excursion left a pretty deep mark in the automotive industry. Therefore, talks about the revive were pretty intense in past years. Things are finally about to become official, according to the latest reports. It looks like we are about to see a completely new version of this SUV, maybe already in the next year as 2020 Ford Excursion.
The original model came in 1999. At that time, things were much different in the automotive industry, so the company believed in this model very much. It all started good, but things become complicated in the next several years. Gas prices were higher, while this SUV wasn’t quite economical. Also, it was pretty heavy and slow.
Today’s industry might be dominated by crossover, but many drivers still prefer classic body-on-frame SUVs. This one will bring things to the completely new level, featuring a design based on a heavy-duty truck, which promises spectacular capabilities.
2020 Ford Excursion Design
At this point, we are still relying on rumors and speculations. However, some things already seem pretty certain. Of course, this primarily refers to the architecture. Like the original model, the Ford Excursion 2020 will also be a rare bird. We are once again about to see an SUV that is based on the company’s Super Duty series. More precisely, it will be based on the F-250 model. Of course, there are some large and capable full-size SUVs around, such as Chevrolet Suburban, Toyota Sequoia, and Ford Expedition.
However, this one will set the pole much higher. This model will be a clear choice for all those who need excellent towing capabilities, but also like to enjoy a high level of comfort and carry more than five people.
Another important aspect of the new model will be efficiency. The original Excursion was great in many ways, but it was way too heavy and inefficient. This time, the Ford Excursion 2020 will adopt the company’s new lightweight platform, which combines mostly HSS and aluminum. Combined with newer and much more efficient engines, it will definitely provide much better ratings in terms of fuel economy, acceleration and overall performances, not to mention almost crossover-like driving experience.
2020 Ford Excursion Styling
In terms of aesthetics, we have no doubt that the 2020 Ford Excursion will look pretty close to the F-250. Two models will share the design language, so count on the almost identical front end. Still, keep in mind that the Super Duty series
Long and boxy shape is something you can bet on for sure. Many reports suggest lots of similarities with the expedition, though we expect to see a lot of upgrades that will accentuate its capabilities. Therefore, count on lots of muscles around wheels and in similar areas. Some reports even suggest a three-door version in the offer.
On the inside, you can once again count on lots of similarities with the F-250. We are pretty sure that the company will come with the similar dashboard layout, though it won’t be a surprise to see the new model with finer materials and similar upgrades that will provide more convenient look. The overall layout will be in a classic SUV manner. That would mean three spacious rows of seating and capacity for eight people. We have no doubt that the Ford Excursion 2020’s will be successful in this area, especially if we consider that its truck sibling comes with lots of latest tech features and standard equipment in general.
2020 Ford Excursion Engines
Under the hood, we count on familiar Super Duty engines. That would mean that base models will come with a familiar 6.2-liter V8, which is good for about 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Still, keep in mind that the company is developing a new 7.0-liter gasoline engine. It won’t be a surprise to see it ready for the new model’s launch.
The 2020 Ford Excursion diesel should come as well. Of course, we count on the monstrous 6.7-liter Powerstroke V8, which delivers impressive 450 horses and 935 pound-feet of torque. This version guarantees amazing performances, though some reports suggest the company could tune down this engine for a bit, in order to make it more convenient to drive.
When will 2020 Ford Excursion arrive?
When it comes to the 2020 Ford Excursion release date, next year is the best answer we can give you at this point. The new model still waits for the official confirmation, so there is no point to make some precise estimation until we hear something from the officials.
How much will it cost?
The 2020 Ford Excursion price is another thing that is hard to estimate. Still, if we consider that the base Expedition goes around 50.000 dollars, this one will probably go around 55/60.000 dollars.
