Ok on my MINI forum there was an article comparing the excursion to the MINI which was pretty funny. The article is here
Now i was also looking at this page here at the same time.
Overall length is about 18.9 feet and width is about 6.6 feet.
The 65 has about the same dimensions with a length of a little over 18.5 feet and the length is a little over 6.5 feet.
The Excursion weighs 7,600 some lbs. The bonneville is a good bit lighter at about 4,000 lbs. The bonneville has also run a 10.4 in the quarter and has a top speed of a 185 mph.
Now think about all of this and try to guess what these two cars get in the MPG range?
The bonneville with its huge 465 cubic inch(Thats over 7.7 liters)big block, old school 4 barrel carb, massive 31.X18 inch back tires got 17 mpg on a 500 mile round trip.
The excrusion with all modern fuel injection and Over head cam technology can only muster up 13mpg on the highway. The largest engine offered in the Excursion that is not a diesel is only a 6.8 litre V10 and I know that makes much less power then the bad *** 7.7 liter big block.
It is emberassing to see how far back we have gone in time.
I am posting this at a couple of different car forums I go to just because i find it so amusing.
