The new Ford Excursion, 19 feet long, and the largest
SUV ever. One question, is an SUV a sport-utility vehicle, or a STUPID, USELESS VEHICLE??? I'm inclined to say the second. They are pointless. The small ones aren't bad, but the latest automotive trend is to make it larger. Notice I said 19 feet long. Guess what the length of a parking space is?? Give up??
Should a car company release a vehicle that is too big
to fit into even a parking space?? Of course not. It
is a danger to drivers in accidents. According to
Ford, it is the safest vehicle on the roads. Yes, it
is. To the people in the "car". What about the other
people in their small cars? Should they sacrifice
safety so someone in downtown L.A. can own a car built
for off road use?? I know our American urban roads
aren't in the best condition, but these things were
never intended to be city cars. So why when I was in
Chicago last year did I see more SUVs than I've seen
total in my life in the midwest, a farm area???? Good
So if a big vehicle isn't a problem, what about
the emessions. This ugly tub gets as low as 10 miles
per gallon. The EPA rates it at 12. And they usually
rate it based on the best possible gas mileage for the
car. And the best they can do is 12? Are we
forgetting that gas isn't always going to be there??
Of course we are. Gas is cheap now, what about if
prices go up? Then where will the owners of these
giant SUVs be? Whining about gas prices of course.
And I will have a small car getting 50 MPG, and I will
I just think the future of the world is more
important than having the biggest car on the road.
Future, or life?? Sure, the bad pollutants over large
cities might be natural, but not likely. So even
though emessions aren't proven to be a problem,
they've shown enough evidence to suggest strongly that
cars create harmfull emessions. Of course, low gas
mileage makes even more emissions.
So don't people care about destroying the world,
of course not, as long as their car can run over an
average dump truck. I just question if the Excursion
will be the largest. What's next?? The Ford Cruise
Ship??? Never know.
In conclusion, if it's worth $50,000 to buy a huge
SUV, then buy the Excursion, or one of those other
giants. Just don't complain about high gas bills.....
and small parking spaces..... and the smog covering
