Granted, if the Ford Excursion nameplate does stage a return, there's nothing to say that it would be anything like its forebear. Given how GM has repurposed the "Hummer" name, using it on a pure-electric line of truck and SUV models under the GMC banner, we could see Ford doing something similar. Plus, as the Blue Oval brand goes about shifting focus exclusively to trucks and utility vehicles, and building out its battery-electric lineup with vehicles like the Ford Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Electric, a bigger, more adventurous SUV would make sense.
That's just speculation, of course, but at this juncture, it might make more sense than introducing a new gas-guzzling four-ton behemoth. Oil went negative recently, after all.
