For some while, there are rumors about its comeback. The largest SUV ever made is not just speculation anymore, since the US carmaker made a few moves that indicate the production might start soon. The 2022 Ford Excursion is still a far-fetched story, but the F-250 based SUV is more likely to come back than ever.
This was the largest model ever made, even bigger than the Expedition Max. Excursion was based on the heavy-duty trucks, unlike the full-size model. Now, with the Super Duty lineup redesigned, we might see the SUV again. But, it is not the only thing that points to the return. There is also the brand-new 7.3-liter V8 engine that is capable to deliver enough power to the 2022 Ford Excursion.
The rumors about the comeback are warming up, despite the COVID-19 outbreak. In May, Truck Trend reported that Ford claimed rights for the nameplate. The question is – why would they do that if the Blue Oval company doesn’t want to use the Excursion brand any longer? There is no sense. On the other hand, official details are very limited, and we can only find pieces of information, pointing that the 2022 Ford Excursion is possible.
One of them is the growth of the popularity of 3-row SUVs. The site specialized for such vehicles (called 7-SEATER SUVS) is analyzing the possibility in the return in the review 2022 Ford Excursion Comeback: Rumor or Not, where we can find plenty of further details.
Reporters are sure that a 7.3-liter V8 engine is going to produce power for the heavy-duty SUV. Even the Motortrend is writing about the resurrection, especially with the new Bronco on the way. The Excursion would complete the lineup and put the Ford beyond the competition. However, Motortrend mentioned Jeep Grand Wagoneer, which could be the HD version of the upcoming Wagoneer full-size SUV. Ford has to offer something to maintain its reputation as the leading subject in the auto industry when it comes to large vehicles.
