    The sad part is that the Kenworth with a 500 detroit would still get better milage than an excursion.

    well i guess not then, the best our Detroits get is 16mpg bobtailing or 12mpg with an empty van, 6mpg loaded.


    And muddy sub.... whats wrong with a detroit? The old two strokes couldnt be killed and the 60 series are great engines. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]I dunno, the chevy suburban can be made into a demigod of circuit city on wheels too. also, are you comparing to a chevy diesel? I don't know anything about these damn new fangled suburbans, except they taco up real nice like in accidents, just like the excursion... mine never has tho. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif What's the bling bling glitzy stereo system on the inside have to do with anything? anyone can drop 3-5 grand on a system, and say its better than the crap your brand makes...

    if the excursion is so mucb better than the suburban, why have they stopped producing it? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
