People are crazy. I鈥檝e owned 7.3鈥檚 (96 cc, lb, 4x4 and currently a 2000 Ex limited 4x4) for the past 12 years. Why are the prices so damn high? Yes, they are great trucks but also pretty expensive to keep up on. That one from the dealer is going to need a transmission and injectors along with all sorts of other regular maintenance pretty soon and they are asking $36,000? Have we lost our damn minds?

There is literally nothing else like it on the market. Expeditions, Suburbans, Land Cruisers (and variants)...none have the capacity to tow like a 20yo Excursion.

Ford is insane for not producing them. They could easily sell a modern Expedition for $100k.

Ford is not insane its the EPA... They are the reason Ford quit making them... People should research how C.A.R.B. is not like any other state emissions agency and how they and the EPA have throttled the autmotive industry with impossible goals and destroyed modern vehicles.

the State of WA in Jan of 21 ended the smog program because since its inception in 1982 all the vehicles ran way cleaner anyways and it wasn't actually helping their air quality with these "smog check" programs. The EPA and CARB already made such impossible goals manufactures had to get away from true autos and go with PATHETIC cvts in most cars/crossovers to help meet mpg requirements. Diesels had to have DPF systems even the oil industry changed with the new CK4 requirements.

Its not even about politics but one agency alone with tax payed dollars squeezed and ruined the auto industry in less than 30 yrs. All for the good of the environment. Lets have material sourced from 3rd world areas to make americans feel like were helping the environment when lithium mines arn't even legal i the US because they are flatout worse than modern petroleum harvesting techniques lol.

Its one of my favorite things to tell people with electric cars that act all superior that I think their coal-powered vehicle is just dandy (since, you know, that electricity has to come from somewhere and the thimble-full of "renewable" energy in the US isnt enough to power a blender).

To the rest of your reply...I guess I just dont understand how a F250 is cool, but cover the bed and add a 3rd row of seats and suddenly its worse than cow farts.

Speaking of cow farts have you considered a van? An E350 with 7.3 PSD is way cheaper than an Expedition or an F350. It's not cool, you won't win any style points or even second glances from the EV folks nor the truck folks. But darn does it work well.

Is it true that the vans are tuned down due to less cooling in the smaller engine bay?
