2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
The Ford Explorer SPORT TRAC is a great all around vehicle for the person that needs a pickup truck and a SUV. Versatilely is what you are going to get when you purchase this vehicle. Yes I know that there is a short bed that doesn't allow you to put a full 4" x 8' sheet of material in the bed. But there are ways to overcome such shortsightedness. Did you ever think of getting a small trailer to hook up to this baby? You'll be able to carry what ever a full size pickup carries without having to drive a full size pickup bed around town when it's not needed. Can you use that full size pickup for work, play and as a family vehicle? I doubt it. The Sport Trac can be used for all the above
Two of the most favorite features are the price and the roll down rear window. Open the side windows and the rear window and even on the hottest days of summer you can leave the air-conditioner off. Another feature is that the SPORT TRAC runs on REGULAR gas only. It's very peppy and fun to drive.
