    Question 2001 Ford Excursion

    Can anyone advise whether the 2001 Ford Excursion is an easy vehicle to install car seats in. We have a 10 month old and another one on the way, so we are looking for a bigger SUV. The one that we are looking at has the captain chairs in the back seat with a third row bench seat. Any opinions?
    Thanks!

    The excursion is an absolutely ginormous vehicle. Luke, seriously, the biggest SUV ever. It is built on a 3/4 ton truck frame (SAME AS THE F250) unless you haul big horse trailers or something, I can't imagine needing something that big for kid-hauling. The Expedition is on the 1/2 ton (F150) frame. It's still a big SUV and is very car seat friendly.

    I do haul horses and livestock. We live in a rural community and I am a 4-H agent, so it is part of my job to haul. Also we like that the diesel last longer mileage wise.

    We tried one out years ago. Dh LOVED it. We use trailers often. It was a diesel!!

    It was easy to install seats in. The one we tried had a 2nd and 3rd row bench. No captains. Anything would fit in there.

    We ended up with a suburban later on. It would fit almost any seats too.

    The 3rd row is tighter, so doing 3 across could be a challenge, but sounds like you are a ways away from having 5 kids back there.

    Ok, gotcha. I misread your post to say that you wanted a "bigger" SUV for kid hauling and imagined you tooling around a city in that monster! I totally get the rural community and needing a big rig thing.
