The Ford Excursion is a heavy duty (Class 2), Extended-length sport utility vehicle that was produced by Ford from 1999 to 2005 for the North American market. The longest and heaviest SUV ever to enter mass production, the Excursion was based upon the Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup truck. A ¾-ton chassis vehicle, the Ford Excursion was designed as a competitor for the 2500-series (also ¾-ton) Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL.
Due to criticism over its large size and declining sales, the Excursion was discontinued after the 2005 model year in the United States (Mexico received a short 2006 production run). For the 2007 model year, the Excursion was largely replaced as Ford introduced an extended-length version of the Ford Expedition (Expedition EL in United States; Expedition Max in Canada/Mexico).
All examples of the Ford Excursion were assembled at the Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky; the last vehicle was produced on September 30, 2005.
