Review of the 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

  • Part SUV, part truck, the Sport Trac is much better at the former than it is at the latter.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    SUV comfort and pickup truck bed convenience, workhorse V6, features galore, available side curtain airbags.

  • Cons

    Ancient underpinnings deliver sloppy ride and handling, can't carry as much as a real pickup, subpar off-road ability.

  • What's New for 2004

    The interior gets a minor refresh that includes a revised instrument cluster. XLT models now come with additional standard features, while the high-line XLT Premium gets a new monochrome exterior look. The Adrenalin model now features an even more powerful premium audio system. All models get a flexible fuel feature that allows them to run on ethanol-blended fuel, as well as traditional gasoline. Finally, there is no longer a manual transmission option on XLS models.

Ford sucks...

Vehicle: 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

I don't think this vehicle is worth the money you pay for it. The interior is very small. You really can't fit to much in it. Too compact. Just bought the car 6 months ago and the driver door, cd player, and rear window are broken. Car is worthless.




Perfect!!!

Vehicle: 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

This truck is PERFECT. There is nothing more an average person could want in their truck. Great power, great reliability and fun to drive!




Noise?????

Vehicle: 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

I owned an Explorer (02) which developed low hum in rearend around 40 + MPH. The dealer tried several fixes and finally said live with it. I decided to trade in on sporttrac (03) no hum initially, but guess what after about 2K miles the old hum is back only louder and more annoying (riders notice it immediately). A local Ford dealer had a gtreat fix - ride with the radio on!!!!! Thanks ford. I've had several ford products over the last few years and this one is the last.

This is my baby, i have driven various types of SUV's. This is the "reliable" car. Room for 5 and back bed excellent for moving furniture. Great for material if into construction. Love it.




Sport trac is the one

Vehicle: 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

The Sport Trac is a fantastic family vacation vehicle. Going to the beach in it is the best. No more sand in the carpet and no fishy smell inside the vehicle. Carry the family, boogie boards and fishing rods without any problems. It also has been great towing a large pop-up camper. You hardly ever know that it is behind you. The gas mileage towing the camper was 16.4. I felt this was exceptionally good considering we had the truck and the camper loaded up. I highly recommend anyone looking for a new family vehicle to look at the Sport Trac.

slow off the line, not much power needs a 8 cylinder, other than that, it is a pretty good truck. i like the looks and the styling of the sport trac. perfect size.i dont like the where the cruise control buttons are they should be where they are on the g.m.s on the turn signal switch. the sun visor should have extensions like the g.m.s
