Those who mourned the Ford Excursion remember its impressive transport capacity well. The Class 2 full-sized SUV was one of the largest (and heaviest) SUVs ever mass-produced in the world. The Ford Excursion was based on the F-250 Super-Duty pickup truck and could accommodate up to nine passengers. Unfortunately, Ford ceased Excursion production in September 2005.

The concept lives on though, with plenty of F-250 conversions being built in aftermarket shops. After all, the recipe was tried and tested already. Some of those conversions are wilder than others, as proved by an F-250 SUV conversion on auction at Cars & Bids. The example listed is even longer than the original Excursion, with six doors for easy access to the 11 seats inside. Think of it as a modern Ford Excursion with a twist.

According to the listing, we’re looking at a 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat that was T-boned in June 2019. The insurance company declared the car a total loss, but it got rebuilt nevertheless, using a stretched Excursion body. This has six doors and two additional rows of seats, allowing for 11 people to travel in comfort. The car soon received a salvage title and started its new life.

Besides the body conversion, the car rides on an aftermarket ICON suspension with a 5-inch lift, and 22-inch Hostile wheels fitted in Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Being a Lariat trim, the car is filled with options including the King Ranch package, four-wheel-drive, tri-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and a Ford SYNC multimedia system. The 6.7-liter V8 used to have 440 horsepower (328 kW/446 PS), but it received some aftermarket tuning and it most certainly is more powerful now, but the listing does not elaborate on the matter.

The bidding price is now at $60,100, but there are still two days left to bid. So, if you’re in for a people hauling Super Duty SUV, make a bid and take it, because this is better than the original Excursion.
