2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The sport trac is very comfortable and
gives a good view of the road. It is
sized just right for someone who wants
a pickup which is not oversized but
can get the job done.


Best Features

The fold out extender for the bed. The seating and view of the road. Movable rear window in cab.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love this truck. It is perfect for
all I need it to do. Not too big and
bulky, as the gas sucking testosterone
laden trucks out there. It carries my
family and I comfortably, all 5 of us.
My family and I enjoy it's versitility.
We use it for fishing and camping
trips, the shorter, smaller bed being
just the right fit for us. This is a
great compact truck.


Best Features

It's easy transition from on road to off road.


Worst Features

Revise cup holder design. Top cup holder not deep enough for some 16 oz cans and bottles which makes for some spills.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Cost me about $16995 plus tax with all
the rebates and discounts. Great
vehicle for the money. Would have
loved better fuel economy -- but it's a
SUV so what do you expect. Very
practical for around the home -- 5 pass
and a pick up bed with a cover -- cool


Best Features

5 Pass and pick up bed -- plus a power slide rear window cool!

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Premium 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I like it overall, improvement over my
95 F150. Solid, no rattles.


Best Features

leather interior, sliding back glass, decent gas mileage.


Worst Features

Tilt steering wheel lever too low hits knees on an average size person. Should come equipped with a trailor hitch. engine bay crowded for a 6 cylinder. Rear view mirror creates a big blind spot. Door automatic locks anoying.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This truck does it all! Looks great,
interior is fine for carting around 5
adults, and the plastic bed means you
need not worry about scratching up your
paint. Mileage in the 18-20 mpg rane
(mixed driving) is achievable if you
keep your foot out of it -- tops in its
class. Recently got 23 mpg on a trip
to Alabama (interstate, 70 mph). 4.0
V6 is powerful enough to pull this 2+
ton truck, and get you in and out of
traffic smartly. Base CD player is
adequate... but Pioneer system for $200
more would have been better. A
comfortable compromise between
commuter vehicle, SUV, yet can function
as a truck when you need it, which fits
in a garage.


Best Features

Power 3-position back window, bed extender cage (a must-have option), decent mileage for a truck, roomy interior, rubber floor for cleaning.


Worst Features

Cheesy 'go anywhere' console bag and lack of compass/temp mirror on base models are proof that Ford really cheaped out on these; Daytime lights, or auto on/off lights should be standard for this price range. Suspension is a little rough over RR tracks, but hey... it's a truck.
