2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
After owning a 2005 version of the Explorer SportTrac I was ready to try the newer version. I was attracted by its upgraded styling which I found more appealing than the older version from 2000 to 2005. Also I liked the idea of the independent rear suspension on the newer version versus the live straight axle of the 2005 iteration. It still drives like a truck. Stiff and solid, which for me is a plus. It has the feeling of a vehicle that is strong and capable of hauling around my toys as well as being a dependable every day commuter. That's a very nice compromise in my estimation
It feels comfortable and capable and a good fit for my limited hauling requirements.
The Sync my Ride should be re-labeled as this @%^#! Ford get a clue! This is WAY too complicated. In my opinion you partnered with the wrong technology company. Microsoft is yesterday. Apple or Google is tomorrow and beyond. People want simple, easy an intuitive. Sync my ride is anything but.
