2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4dr Crew Cab (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
The interior is not well designed. The door opener is ok, but the grip on the door is awkward; it's hard to grab to keep the door from swinging too far, and at a bad position to close. The interior/exterior temperature gauges are small and hard to read. The message center is in the middle of the dash, but the speedo is hard to read through the steering wheel. The parking brake release is hard to reach and cramped. There is no indication on the dash as to what gear you're in. There is no way to manually shift out of the overdrive(s). The flip-over rack was bent and the locks wouldn't work. When you flip the larger back seat down, there is a big gap between the back of the seat/cab.
Independent suspension, 4 wheel disk brakes, 6 speed transmission (I think/hope), V8, sound system.
Put "message center" on lower right/left of dash; put direction and outside temp in big letters/ numbers up on console above rear-view mirror; the cruise control should be easy to work by touch - bumps or depressions.
