2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I had owned a '91 Explorer and enjoyed it for 11 years. So I thought I would give the SportTrac a try. I like the dual use concept vehicle. The room and ride are great. I got the the XLT 2WD with tonneau cover. With the dealer's discount and Ford rebate I purchased mine for $18,990 plus tax and title! All the options you need, cruise, air, auto, radio/CD, OLW wheels, roll down rear window. What a price! A good $4K less than nearest comparable vehicle.
Ride, height, good basic CD stereo system, tonneau cover, XLT styled wheels, Parks in my garage easily. Rear window that opens and closes, composite bed and body no steel to rust out.
Seat belt connector in seat needs to be longer to make connection easier, standard storage compartment between front seats not the portable one that comes with the XLT, make step rails standard.
