2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
A good looking truck along with the V8 power made it attractive to me. The car-like ride, handling and good visibility made it attractive to my wife. If you are looking for a good towing vehicle that will fit in your garage, this is it. We test drove quite a few trucks before deciding to purchase, but it was an easy decision based on the price/available options/and nice design. There are some areas that could use some updating and the service you get from a Ford dealer is a little shaky - but the vehicle is very solid, quiet and easy to drive.
V8 power, compact dimensions (compared to full size trucks/SUV's). The bed is highly configurable and can be arranged to fit almost any need with the hard tonneau cover and bed extender. The compartments in the bed are handy too. The cab is very quiet on the road and the 6CD stereo is very nice.
Darker interior finish colors. The leather and the cloth are too light in color - we had to purchase some OEM fitted covers to keep the kids from ruining the seats. Ford product: very nice - Ford dealers: yucko. Make sure everything is done and right before you finish the deal or you will regret it.
