2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Limited 4dr Crew Cab AWD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
I have had many vehicles, of all sorts. I have been looking at the Sport Trac since it's debut in 2001, but wanted more than the 4.0 litre engine. Now with the V8 4.6 my dream truck is a reality, and the wait was worth it, more robust frame & suspension (IRS), better looks, plus overall refinements. I am over 6'1", comfort is great. I like the door handles (placement, appearance) and have no issue with the door pulls, seats, or anything else. The rubber floor covering is much easier to clean than carpet would be. I trailer two large ATVs at "highway speeds", passing & handling is spot on. I am very pleased with my Sport Trac, and have recommended it to others, friends and family included.
The composite box with the three in floor storage compartments plus lockable tonneau cover and tailgate. The 2" receiver hitch, with 4 & 7 wire connections. Interior comfort and storage, also flat folding rear seats are the best. There is nothing to dislike about the 2008 Sport Trac 4x4 IMHO
This is a four wheel drive truck. If I can get another 4 or 5 mpg out of it then I would gladly rate the 2008 Sport Trac at 10 across the board.
