What Is The Weight Of A 2000 – 2005 Ford Excursion? (Answered)

When you own a Ford Excursion, there will most likely also be moments where you need to know how much the car weighs. To find this out, we went through all the owners’ manuals of this specific car and calculated the average weight for each model year and engine type. The short answer is as follows:

The 2000 – 2005 Ford Excursion with a 5.4 L engine has an average weight between 6,900 – 7,400 lbs, including passengers, baggage, and a full tank. The Excursion with a 6.8 L engine has an average weight of 7,000 – 9,500 lbs, including passenger, baggage, and a full tank.

However, this doesn’t tell the full story. In the next subheading, we’ve outlined the average weight, the average maximum trailer weight, the gross combined weight rating for each model year, and the engine type of the Ford Excursion. This way, you’ll surely find the weight of your Ford Excursion. Furthermore, we also teach you where you can find the maximum weight rating of your car. Read on!

Average Weight Of Ford Excursion

In the table below, you’ll find the average weight of your vehicle according to the owner manuals of each specific model year. On the left, you will find the model year and your car’s specific engine type. Then, you’ll see three columns which each have different weight numbers in them.

The ‘average weight’ is what your car weighs, including passengers, cargo, and a full tank. This is most likely what your car weighs in day-to-day use. The ‘maximum trailer weight’ is the maximum weight the car can tow. The ‘gross combined weight rating’ is the sum of the ‘average weight’ and the ‘maximum trailer weight.’ In the ‘notes’ section, you’ll find other relevant information which helps you sort out which type of car you really have.

Where To Find The Maximum Weight Of Your Ford Excursion?

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum allowable weight of the fully-loaded vehicle (including all options, equipment, passengers, and cargo). The GVWR is shown on the Safety Compliance Certification Label located on the B-Pillar or the edge of the driver’s door (see image below). The Gross Vehicle Weight must never exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

Furthermore, it’s good to know that each axle has a maximum load capacity. This is shown under the GAWR, which stands for Gross Axle Weight Rating and can be found on the same label in your car.
