1200CustomHD .........In case you have forgotten.....the Ford Excursion is the largest SUV on the road, with the Chevy Suburban second and then comes the Expedition Max.....these models are each 2 inches apart.....and sometimes 2 inches is a lot.

The last Ford Excursion rolled off the assembly line in 2005.

The Ford Expedition is STILL in production so your argument is WRONG.

For a Cheif Know It ALL you don't know many easily researchable facts!
