2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Fun to drive, and stylish. Not terrible gas mileage for this type of vehicle. With the addition of Dynomax exhaust you can realize more low end grunt, slightly better mileage and a pure performance sound. Interior is very comfortable once you get used to the low slung door handles. Entrance can be tricky if your over 6' however. The 6 speed auto needs work to be considered a performance transmission. Fly by wire system is what it is I suppose, although I would trade it for cables in a heartbeat.
The comfort of the interior and the power of the 4.9/3V engine.
Transmission needs major improvement to better facilitate consistent shifting.
