2005 Ford Excursion With 12K Miles Sells For A Whopping $70K At Auction

It’s no secret that the used car market is red hot, hitting another all-time high just last month. This has trickled down to the collector car market as well, with cash-flush folks rushing out to auctions and other for sale sites and plunking down big money for everything from classic cars to vintage Ford Bronco models, the latter of which have skyrocketed in value in recent years. But some modern classics, like this 2005 Ford Excursion, are hopping on that proverbial train as well.

This 2005 Ford Excursion just crossed the virtual block at Bring a Trailer, and when the dust settled, it hammered for an astounding $70,500 – roughly the same price as a brand new Ford Expedition Limited. Of course, there are quite a few reasons for this eye-opening result. The Ford Super Duty-based Excursion was one of those vehicles that comes along once in life, attracts a huge following, and then disappears forever, making the ones that exist truly hot commodities.

That’s especially true of the Excursion, a massive SUV that could haul the family and tow a trailer without breaking a sweat. Environmentalists and high gas prices killed off the model, but folks still covet such a vehicle today, though no one makes anything comparable. That makes low-mile examples like this one – which has just 12k miles on the clock – hot items in the collector vehicle world.

This 2005 Ford Excursion isn’t stock, however, wearing modifications including a large steel front bumper, Warn winch, brush guard, LED driving lights, and meaty 315/75 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 tires.

Being a Limited model, the big SUV is also awash in luxurious interior features including beige leather, power-adjustable pedals, and automatic climate control. This particular Excursion is powered by Ford’s 6.0L Power Stroke diesel, which was originally rated to produce 325 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque.

That combination, when combined with the desirability of the Excursion and the hot used car/collector car market in general, appears to have sent buyers into a bidding frenzy for this super clean SUV. Now, it’ll be interesting to see just how much higher these prices can go.

    I have owned a 2001 7.3 PowerStroke Excursion Limited with 81,000 miles on it for 17 years. It’s Banks equipped with a Garrett turbo and runs like a dream. I have been receiving offers for it for years but I won’t sell it like I did my 79 Bronco that I regret to this day!

    Marvin, We live in not entirely separate worlds. I had the same Ford Excursion and regret selling it. I still have the 79 Bronco that I installed a 7.5L and have no regrets.

    …and y’all can hear it coming. No electric motors here except for the heat/AC blower and the starter.
    Only battery (two with the diesel version) is for the starter/lights/ignition.
    This was before y’all’s time with FoMoCo Farley. Electric motors are for exhaust fans and heaters/starters. Engines are for vehicles. Capiche Farley?

    Seventy grand for a sixteen year old vehicle? Really? Wow!
