Fordredesign.com – The initial Ford Excursion is often regarded as the largest SUV ever produced. This massive SUV was first unveiled in 1999, based on the Super Duty pickup. However, it was only in production for a short time before being phased out in 2006. We didn’t see a successor after that for a variety of reasons, but it appears that it may return after all these years. We’ve been hearing stories about the model’s return for a long time, and now it appears that it could debut as early as next year, as the 2024 Ford Excursion. Remember that these are simply rumors, so proceed with caution.
If the Blue Oval Company decides to bring back this moniker, we are confident that the design approach would be the same. Once again, we anticipate seeing an SUV based on a heavy-duty pickup, with remarkable dimensions and a massive powertrain.
2024 Ford Excursion Design
Many reports point to the return of this huge SUV. At this point, officials are remaining silent, but if the firm is willing to bring it back, we know what to expect. Once again, we’d see a design based on the company’s well-known Super Duty pickups. More specifically, most parts would be shared with the F-250, beginning with the platform, chassis, and suspension arrangement.
When it comes to exterior design, we anticipate that proportions will be even more spectacular than previously. The original model had a wheelbase of roughly 137 inches, whereas the updated model may have a wheelbase of more than 140 inches. In terms of appearance, we anticipate a super-long, wagon-like body, with a front end inspired by the new F-250, with similarly designed headlamps, grille, and so on.
The main advantage of such massive dimensions would be increased passenger space. We’d see three rows of seats with plenty of room for adults. Even the third row would be able to comfortably accommodate taller travelers, bringing the total seating capacity to 8 adult passengers. Aside from plenty of passenger capacity, the redesigned 2024 Ford Excursion would also have an amazing luggage volume, substantially larger than traditional full-size SUVs like the Ford Expedition or Chevy Suburban.
In terms of appearance, the redesigned cabin would most likely retain the pickup siblings’ tough look. This is especially true of the dashboard, which should have the same boxy shape and be made of materials that are more durable than fine. Of course, we’d expect a slew of technological goodies, such as a huge infotainment screen, digital instrument cluster, wireless smartphone integration, wireless charging, and so on.
2024 Ford Excursion Engine
The engine lineup should be nearly same. This could include the new 6.8-liter V8 engine, which will replace the original 6.2-liter Boss engine, which produced 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
The 7.3-liter V8 on the other hand appears to be a foregone conclusion. This engine now produces 430 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, but we wouldn’t be surprised if power was increased in the near future. Finally, we could see the new 2024 Ford Excursion with a super-capable 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel with a maximum output of 475 horsepower and 1.050 pound-feet of torque. All engines would be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2024 Ford Excursion Release Date and Price
The 2024 Ford Excursion is currently just a rumor, but some rumors indicate that the new model might appear as early as next year. We believe that the starting price for this massive SUV will be approximately $65.000-$70.000.
