Default Suburban vs Excursion

Any difference other than Excursion having the v10 and not the v8?

There are many differences between the two vehicles. What, specifically, are you asking for?

If 4x4
Excursion has solid front axle
Suburban has IFS

Excursion IMO is more heavy duty than the suburban. Most suburbans are built on a 1/2 ton chassis Excursion is built on a 3/4 ton chassis.

I don't think Ford offers the Excursion any longer. It was more heavy duty being greater than 8600 gvw.

Ford hasn't offered the Excursion in nearly 10 years. From a suspension and chassis standpoint, they were better built.

I wouldn't mind one of the early Excursions with leaf springs.

Right.

The 1/2 ton Ford SUV was/is the Expedition. The Excursion is basically a F250 SuperDuty, with the longer cab instead of a box.

If the OP were to begin making comparisons, he needs to compare only the K2500 or K3500 Suburban.

Suburban diesel wasn't offered after about 1997 (horrible 6.5 turbo diesel slug)

Excursion offered 4 motors (5.4/V10 gas motors and 6.0/7.3 diesels)

Gas tank sizes? Which gets better gas mileage and which gets the most mileage overall on a tank of gas? Does the v10 use that much more gas?

You can google the information you're asking for.

Truth is, NOBODY buys either an Excursion or a Suburban for their mileage. And with a vehicle that big, the bigger engine is not going to get significantly different mileage than the smaller engine. Diesel, of course, is a different story.

A good buddy of mine has an '01 Excursion with the V10. He has found its "sweet spot" to be 62-64 mph, and going that speed he gets right at 14 mpg on the road.
