2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Had to have a v8 and wife wanted this truck. It been rock solid as terms of reliability. I am large guy and takes some time to find a comfortable driving position. Interior is my only complaint. Hard plastic scratches easily and hard to keep clean. Handling is better than any truck I owned this is due to independent rear. Have every option but leather. Sound system is great. Some are complaining about mpg. We are getting 18.5 in combine driving of city and highway. On long highway trips we are getting 23 on average. Ford stand behind their warranty and had no issue when small issues came up. See below.
V8 with 6spd tranny. Easy to clean flooring. Sporty driving for a heavy truck. Pretty good MPG for v8 and weight of the Sport Trac. Great warranty and dealership backing the vehicles.
Interior plastic material too easy to scratch and not easy to keep clean. Only had two repairs first the shifter broke(repaired under warranty no issue) Second was sun visor(again trouble free warranty issue)
