Considering the General......

I am possibly considering buying a GM product. This goes against my tradition of buying all Fords in the past, but the Excursion is getting some mileage on it and with a young family, it does not need to be front line with 150k on it. So I went looking. To my disappointment, Ford dropped the Excursion in '05. I do not trust used vehichles so the Excursion option is gone:(:mad:

I really didn't like the Suburban when I got the Excursion back in '03 but the new one is supposed to be a lot better. How does it compare to the Excursion? Any personal experienses and or info will be appreciated and thanks!

Without a doubt the Excursion is bigger than the newer Suburban.

The Tow rating is a disappointment as my Excursion tows 4000 pounds more then the new Suburban according to the above link! Why dosen't Chevy make a diesel in the Suburban?

What is the difference in fuel consumption?
I concur, why the hell is the D-Max at least not an option in the Sub?
