Autotrader Find: Armored Six-Door 2005 Ford Excursion

What you see here is probably the most interesting Ford Excursion in the world. The Ford Excursion — already an interesting car for its massive engines and its ability to tow serious loads while carrying the whole family in luxury — has been taken to the next level here, as this particular example is a six-door Excursion complete with full armoring. Best of all, it’s currently listed for sale on Autotrader.

The description for this Excursion is quite interesting, starting with the fact that it was built for King Abdullah of Jordan, and only used for his transportation when he was visiting the United States (and, in particular, Washington, D.C.). As a result, the Excursion has tremendously low miles (just 4,000), and an enormous amount of security measures, including surveillance cameras, 360-degree armoring, fuel tank protection, under-hood protection, and a lot of other stuff you’d never want or need for your own vehicle (lights and siren package, anyone?).

Then there’s the luxury stuff. Obviously, this Excursion has six doors to carry more people, but it also boasts power folding TV screens, reclining and massaging seats “all around,” folding tray tables, and a refrigerator mounted in front.

The ad says that the truck originally cost $620,000 to purchase, which seems reasonable to me given the stretch, the level of luxury equipment, and the ridiculous safety measures and armoring. It’s now offered by Cosmo Motors in Hickory, North Carolina, for $189,997, which honestly seems like a great deal — presuming there’s someone out there actually interested in a fully armored, six-door Excursion. If you are that person, you probably won’t find anything else like it.

  1. Seems like the perfect vehicle for me to load some of my arsenal in, I’m sure it has accommodations for it. 

  2. Where’s Hoovie? This is what he should have converted into an overlander. 

    Or maybe the next Doug car. If you are planning on having children, think of the hilarity. Bringing a newborn home two zip codes away from the driver.
