The beloved Ford Excursion was sadly discontinued years ago thanks largely to environmental concerns, but the giant SUV still has its fair share of fans who wish Ford would bring it back. That probably isn’t likely to ever happen, but there are some companies out there that will happily convert a Ford Super Duty pickup into a modern-day Excursion. However, this 2016 Ford F-250 Excursion conversion up for grabs at Cars & Bids takes that concept one step – or two doors – further.
This build did indeed start life as a 2016 Ford F-250, but it’s been stretched considerably to add two additional doors, making it a proper six-door vehicle, along with the addition of both third- and fourth-row seating that will accommodate up to 11 people, which is more than enough for most families. This process included stretching not only the body but also the frame to accommodate all that extra length, while the rear tailgate was converted to a pair of split doors as well.
In addition to that one major modification, this “Excursion” has been treated to a set of fender flares, custom running boards, an ICON five-inch suspension lift, and 22-inch Hostile wheels wrapped with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Since it’s equipped with King Ranch trim, the interior is awash in comfort and amenities, so all 11 folks on board will feel spoiled in addition to riding around in a true behemoth of a vehicle.
That extra size and weight calls for a formidable powerplant, and this F-250 certainly has that in the form of Ford’s 6.7L Power Stroke V8, which was originally rated to produce 440 horsepower and 860 pound-feet of torque. This one has also been treated to a tune for even more power (though that hasn’t been confirmed by a dyno), and the diesel powerplant is backed up by a six-speed automatic transmission.
For those that need a supremely capable vehicle that can tow or haul just about anything along with nearly a dozen people, this cool modified F-250 seems like just the ticket. But at the same time, it makes us remember what a shame it is that Ford no longer builds and sells such a vehicle, too.
