Ford Expedition Limo ( Newer ) VS Ford Excursion Limo ( Older )
If you are in the market to book an SUV limo, when you start calling around limo companies you will hear the phrase Excursion limousine and Expedition limousine.
In this article we will explain the difference between the two and why it is very important for you to know the difference.
First of all Ford Excursions limos were produced from 1999 to 2005. 2005 was the last year when Ford manufacturer Ford Excursions. At minimum, you would be reserving a 12 year old limousine.
Now why would you like to rent a twelve-year old limousine which is outdated? All the electrical systems has never been upgraded. An older sound system could have been upgraded by the limousine company but, not many companies like to spend money on an older vehicle.
AC system would definitely be obsolete and would not blow cold in hotter temperatures. Secondly, there could be issues with the heat in the winter. Most of the time limousines are designed to last about 5 to 10 years. Every time the manufacturer introduces a new model, new limousines are manufactured.
The Excursion limo would definitely have an older feel to it.
Now there could be some exceptions as some limo owners do take care of their limousines as if it were their own baby. There might be some Ford Excursions that are in exceptional condition but they will still be 12 years old and would still have 300 plus thousand miles on it. This could definitely result in a disappointing limo experience.
If you need a limo simply to transport your party from point A to point B and need it done quickly and affordable, taking an Excursion maybe worth the risk, but if common sense were to be used this option is not worth the risk when a better alternative is readily available.
If a limousine company has the Ford Expedition limousine, it would be wise to reserve with them as the vehicle is at most 10 years old as Ford started manufacturing the Expedition model in 2007.
New limos have updated sound systems, HVAC units , updated lighting, newer more reliable engine and transmission combinations as well as modern vehicle components that result in a better ride and experience overall.
Just by looking at the pictures, would you rather have 15 year old limousine, or a vehicle that was manufactured within the last 3-9 years?
Of course limo companies will not disclose the exact age of their vehicles, and if asked they may tell you that their vehicles are brand new. Now most consumers who have rented a limo a few times may not be able to tell the difference between the Ford Excursion limo ( Older ) and Ford Expedition limo ( Newer ), but after reading this article any person renting a limo even for the first time should be able to tell the difference! Its simple, if you had the choice, would you own an older vehicle or a newer one?
Remember if you are limo shopping and somebody’s trying to give you a Ford Excursion limo and they’re telling you it’s brand new, they are counting on the fact that you don’t know the difference between the two.
