Excursion vs. Suburban Mileage?
Posted September 30, 2010 - 04:40 AM
I will get around 2000 model year 4x4 etc...
Excursion 5.4L V8: can only imagine this little engine has to work pretty hard to go anywhere. Especially towing a large toy hauler.
Excursion V10. Wouldnt have to work too hard, but loves gas no matter what.
Suburban 6.0L. Better than 5.4L mileage????
Suburban 8.1L. Loves gas?

I drove the Excursion V10 and thought it wasnt as powerfull as the chevy, also the Suburban has better AC and a nicer layout inside. The Excursion felt HUGE to us.
We drove the suburban with the 6.0 and thought it did well, then we got in a 8.1 and it spun the tires from a stand still on dry pavment.... gas was $1 when I bought it in sept of 02
We thought about getting somthing else, but the suburban fits our needs better than anything else (in our price range)
People with the 3:73 gears get better mpg but I dont know how well it tows.

DO NOT get a 5.4 excursion it will be horible on gas because it labors too much just to move the truck itself around let alone a toyhauler. believe me i have a lincoln mark lt with the 5.4 and my dad has the excursion. the 5.4 s@#$# and the 7.3 powerstroke is amazing.
P.S. here's a pic and you can see my lincoln in the backround through the windows
