2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Purchased from private owner at 70K miles. Needed vehicle to lug my two kids (5 and 2). This truck has been great for that. Can take the abuse-- though resale with the cloth interior will be nauseating. For its size and v6 engine, gets poor gas mileage--on par with v8s that are much bigger, heavier. Cheap materials on dash and cabin--but economical. Paint coming off of center stack facing. But after 132K miles, engine still strong and is very reliable, so no complaints there.

Favorite Features

Venting rear window, bed extender gate, bedliner, reliable engine

Suggested Improvements

Why such bad gas mileage in a v6 (which is underpowered anyway)? Having seen the new models, looks like they are moving away from the "Ranger" cabin materials to nicer materials this truck deserves. Few gripes, but highly recommended vehicle!
