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


Review

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!


Favorite Features

Power rear window. Real humans can use the rear seats. Real tow capacity. Deep bed walls add to volume capacity. Commanding seating position.


Suggested Improvements

Hybrid version would be a huge success.

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


Review

I am woman with children and hauls a lot of kids around. It is great for hauling flowers and taking kids to the football game all at the same time.


Favorite Features

How reliable it is. Never scared that I will drive it off and it will break down on me. I love Fords for that.


Suggested Improvements

A little more style on the dash.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Roll down back window, 12 volt tap in bed.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe configure it for a Hybrid? Or alternate fuels?
