2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I recently purchased a new Sport Trac. This vehicle met the needs I wanted. I didn't need or want a full size pickup. But I wanted a bed to haul items that wouldn't fit inside a normal SUV. I wanted light duty towing capability and with 5300 lbs it easily meets that need. I have found that is has a quiet and smooth ride on the road. The seats are very comfortable. The interior is user friendly and the console easy to see. It isn't loaded with a lot of fancy electronic gadgets unless you want to add them on, which I didn't want. I have found it has smooth acceleration. It doesn't snap your head back but I wasn't looking for a sports car. Really good low end power and the brakes stop on a dime.
