Beg to differ on this one. You really don't need to have too much presence to prove that you are up there in life. Subtelty sometimes really helps. For instance a Multi-Billionaire head honcho of a software solutions firm in India drives around in just a Corolla and jets across the country and the world in Economy class fare. It isn't being stingy, its just putting your money where your priorities are.

If a Ford Excursion does not have presence i doubt which other vehicle obviously other than a Hummer would .......

that vehicle is over 18 feet long is the biggest SUV that ford makes has maximum seating and cargo space and Horsepower
the only other ford SUV which comes close in some areas is the Expedition

and after looking at the pics i must say every inch has been used to good effect

P.S the guy in the pic can never be a CEO.....ha ha

wouldnt the ride be bumpy, considering the rear seat is behind the rear wheels.
