2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
Over 5500 miles on my Sport Trac, really enjoying it. Had a problem with a soft brake pedal, but the dealer has since fixed it. The v8 engine and 6 speed transmission work well, I have towed my 4000 lb travel trailer over 2000 miles, lots of power in the mountains. Fuel economy - only 9.5mpg towing, but my last tank unloaded on the highway (60-75mph) lasted 415 miles, for 19.88 mpg. I recommend this truck.
V8 is smooth, powerful. Decent fuel economy if you drive easy. Audiophile sound system is nice, along with steering wheel controls. Great ride. Lockable tailgate/tonneau. Nice shifter.
Racier exhaust note. Wider tires would improve the looks and handling. They have improved the door handle design with Job 2 (trucks built starting in August). 2 way tailgate like Ridgeline would be nice.
