One of the things that are common for many carmakers these days is that they are bringing old nameplates back, in order to trigger the emotions of potential buyers and increase sales in that way. However, we’ve seen many disappointments in the last couple of years, starting from Chevy Blazer. We’ve witnessed some pretty successful comebacks as well, such as the new Jeep Wagoneer, for example. In this case, the expectations are high, as we are talking about a pretty specific model that was in production between 1999 and 2006. Yes, we are talking about the 2023 Ford Excursion comeback.
At this point, the officials are still quiet on this matter. Still, we can hear rumors that suggest Ford is about to bring back this unique SUV. If that’s going to happen, we expect nothing less from the new model but to follow the path of the original.
According to these rumors, this comeback could happen already in the next year.
2023 Ford Excursion Design
As we’ve just mentioned, if the 2023 Ford Excursion is about to come back, we expect it would feature the same design approach as the original model. The original model was pretty special, as it was based on the F-250 pickup truck. With a heavy-duty chassis and huge dimension, it was probably the most unique SUV on the market. Therefore, we would expect to see the same thing from the new generation, which would be based on the current F-250.
This tight connection wouldn’t be just in terms of the chassis. We would expect to see similar aesthetics as well, especially at the front. When it comes to dimensions, the original model was good for 137 inches in wheelbase. If we consider that the current-generation Expedition has grown up to nearly 132 inches in wheelbase, as well as that the new Suburban is good for 134 inches, we wouldn’t be surprised if we see an even bigger Excursion, with around 140 inches between the wheels.
Of course, the tight connection with the Super Duty pickup would continue on the inside as well. We would expect to see a similar dashboard design, which is bold and massive but also characterized by quality materials and good overall quality. Naturally, we would also expect to see a full load of the latest tech features, including things like a massive touchscreen, wireless smartphone integration and other things. The same goes for safety features.
Still, the strongest point of the 2023 Ford Excursion would be interior space. Of course, three rows of seats would be standard, while the cargo area would offer tremendous amounts of space as well.
2023 Ford Excursion Engines
We presume that the 2023 Ford Excursion would use the same engines as the Super Duty pickup. The base 6.2-liter V8 would probably be skipped and the offer would start with the new 7.3-liter V8, which puts out around 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque.
We count on a diesel version as well, which would come with the massive 6.6-liter V8 turbodiesel that puts out 450 horsepower and a monstrous 1.050 pound-feet of torque.
With both engines under the hood, the 2023 Ford Excursion would be able to offer exceptional performance. We count on impressive driving dynamics, as well as an impressive towing and payload capacity. Both engines would come coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Ford Excursion Release Date and Price
According to rumors, the 2023 Ford Excursion could arrive already in the next year. If that happens, we presume that the base version would go somewhere around 65-70.000 dollars. Still, keep in mind that this comeback is just a rumor and that the officials are quiet. Therefore, make sure to take these paragraphs with a big reserve.
