2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
This has been a great truck. Fits our lifestyle nicely, can still put a 4x8 sheet of plywood in the back, seat 5 adults comfortably, tow a utility trailer and still drive the thing around downtown and not have difficulty finding a parking spot. Biggest disappointment is the gas mileage. I can't understand how a 6 cylinder not being driven hard gets such poor mileage. Build quality is great and I haven't had a single problem with it.
You have to get the cargo bar for the back bed. The composite bed is also excellent. Finally a truck manufacturer figured that out! No more dents, scratches and I don't need a bed liner or a spray on liner.
Gas mileage! Also I wish the back slide down window let you stop it where you wanted to. Right now it either vents or opens all the way, I want to be able to open it as far as I want to open it. I don't think this would be difficult.
