Do you know what your rear end ratio is? You may have a towing package on your excursion which is like a 4.10 instead of a 3.73.

Your tire size will help too...

My 06 auto with 3.73 rear end and the small, stock, 265/75/17's I run about 2000rpm at 70.

Your 350 have larger tires on it by any chance?
