2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I came out of a 2003 4x4 F250 w/ the V10. I loved th truck but needed a vehicle with a lower payment and lower fuel bill. The Sport Trac did both. I have really enjoyed the ST. I think the 4.0 v6 handles it better than the 4.6 v8 handles the F150. Fuel mileage is avg. about 17, and, with the tailgate down, my Honda Foreman 4wheeler will fit in the back(the side tie downs come in very handy for this. Would definately recommend this vehicle.
Exterior and interior design. Center console mounted shifter, very quiet ride.
The door handles are in a wierd place, but ya get used to em pretty quick.
