The upcoming 2021 Ford Excursion is a full-size SUV that will get additional upgrades later next year. It is the largest SUV nowadays and its comeback is scheduled for 2020. It will ride on a new gasoline engine and diesel version will become available as well.
For 2021, Excursion will get a lot of new equipment, small visual upgrades, and new exterior colors. Excursion is based on the F-250 pickup truck so it will share a lot with this iconic heavy-duty model. Generally, Excursion is set for the new chapter that excited the fans across the globe.
Once again, Blue Oval automaker will deliver a traditional design for its newest SUV. The 2021 Ford Excursion will wear a lot of the old cues. It is a perfect combination of the old school look and modern-day styling. Once again, Excursion will share a lot of things with Ford’s F-250 pickup truck. That includes the platform, exterior features and plenty more. F-250 rides on a lighter platform so Excursion will have to fit in that.
The 2020 model will mark the start of a new-gen Excursion. However, in 2021 Excursion will get further upgrades. Nothing significant as most of the exterior will largely remain. On the other hand, new optional wheels, exterior paints, and additional gear are in the works. This should reduce the uniqueness of the full-size SUV. Still, the 2021 Excursion will look tough and mean.
2021 Ford Excursion Interior
The interior of the all-new 2021 Ford Excursion is also based on the interior of the F-250 pickup. The interior will look unique, mostly the dashboard and the materials from the inside. The Excursion is an extremely large SUV so you don’t have to worry about the interior room. You can choose between eight-seat and nine-seat models.
Cargo area is impressive and you can fit an elephant in the back if you want to. And while the exterior looks rugged, the interior is very subtle and modern. Thanks to the numerous trim levels, upper trims will provide more than enough luxury. For 2021, Excursion will get Wi-Fi, new interior color schemes and more driver-assistance systems.
Gasoline Engine Specs
The forthcoming 2021 Ford Excursion will continue to offer a large 6.2-liter V8. This powertrain will arrive for the 2020 model and it will carry on in 2021. Powerful V8 produces 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque.
Many fans are hoping for a turbocharged engine with even more power. However, this is only possible if Blue Oval introduces a special variant such as Raptor.
2021 Excursion Diesel
The arriving full-size SUV will also offer a diesel engine. Some things are still not official. However, the 2021 Ford Excursion will offer a 6.7-liter V8. This engine generates up to 450 horsepower. More importantly, torque figures are set at 925 lb-ft.
With these numbers, Excursion will have no real competition. Yes, we could mention a 707-hp Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Still, Jeep is focusing on the acceleration and top speed. Ford is more about utility and towing.
This is an interesting topic for various reasons. However, a new 2021 Ford Excursion will surely be the new tow-king in the town. Its gasoline engine will tow around 9,000 pounds. On the other hand, diesel powertrain is more capable.
Knowing that Excursion Diesel will tow around 18,500 pounds. A new 10-speed automatic transmission will certainly help Excursion to achieve these figures.
Price and Release Date
Price is still a huge mystery at the moment. However, the upcoming 2021 Ford Excursion will surely cost around $50,000, more or less. Knowing that the Expedition is priced at $52,000 so the Excursion could add a couple of grand more.
This is just a prediction rather than the official information. The diesel variant will cost slightly more, but still below $60,000. A new full-size SUV will go on sale in the second half of 2020.
