turbo hesitation?? or normal?

I looked at an 03 Ford Excursion this evening with the 6.0L diesel in it. Seems like a very nice truck. If I buy this vehicle this would be the first one I purchase with a diesel motor. When driving it, it seemed to take a second(maybe not an actual second) before the turbo would kick it once stepping on the gas. Is this normal? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
