DEARBORN, Mich. - Early last week, Ford Motor Company officially announced that it would stop making the Excursion sport utility vehicle after the 2004 model year.

The Excursion is currently the only SUV that is fully supported by its manufacturer when it is stretched to the established standards. It received its QVM approval from Ford late last year. There is no official word on a new SUV to replace the Excursion.

"We have two model years left with the vehicle available to be ordered new," said Mike Bedard, Ford limousine and livery manager. "I would imagine coachbuilder supply could go over the next three years".
