Review of the 2005 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 2005

    The new model year brings few changes for the Sport Trac. All audio systems now feature MP3 and satellite radio compatibility.

Couldn't be happier!

Vehicle: 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

I originally looked at Sport Trac when they first came out years ago, but was able to get away with buying a much cheaper xtra cab Tacoma. Since then the kid has gotten a lot bigger and he was getting cramped in the back of the Yo. I looked at all the small/mid-size crew-cab trucks and found flaws with all of them. The Sport Trac had the fewest cons and by far the most pros. Since then I am extremely happy with my choice and with this Ford product. There is tons of room in the back seat (tested a Frontier, Tacoma, Dakota or Colorado). Front seats are extremely comfortable. Reliability is first class. Good job Ford. I am looking forward to testing a 2008 soon- gorgeous interiors!

It's been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned, I bought it just before the gas prices went through the roof. Still not too bad on fuel consumption. On the highway I'm averaging 21-22 mpg. Great little truck.
