Louisville, Ontario – Following up on an announcement made earlier this year, Ford has ceased production of the Excursion, its largest SUV. The last models rolled off the assembly line in Louisville, Kentucky last Friday.
Based on the Super Duty commercial pickup truck, the Excursion debuted in 1999. Ford sold over 50,000 in the first year, but sales dropped steadily since then. Some 11,843 were sold this year through the end of August, compared to 12,914 during the same period last year.
